Sometimes we find ourselves in that "can’t stand music, only podcast" phase in the week, so we go into the iTunes store, and the first thing we do is download the newest episodes of Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.

Maron’s a smart guy who’s been around the block six or seven times.  His resume includes terms and designations such as "alternative comic," "off-Broadway star," "political commentator," and most recently, "host of very popular podcast". 

What sets WTF apart from any other comedy podcast floating around in cyberspace, is the fact that Maron knows comedians are (usually) smart people with a lot of things to say.  The conversations he’s had with folks from Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, and recently, the two part series with Judd Apatow, are interesting, insightful, and always full of laughs that don’t seem to come from practice runs for new routines. 

Jewcy hung out with Marc in his jungle themed hotel room while he was in town, and asked a few questions.
