Adam talks to Marc Maron, stand up comedian, actor, writer and host of one of the very best interview podcasts out there: WTF! As usual, it’s not a career overview but a meandering chat that takes in podcast hosting and stand up, getting hustled, Marc’s new acting role in the Netflix show GLOW and we discover what’s on Marc’s running playlist.

Adam also concludes the podcast by paying wobbly voiced tribute to the late, great director Jonathan Demme.

Thanks to Seamus Murphy Mitchell for production support, Matt Lamont for convo editing and to Acast for hosting this podcast. Download their app and check out their many other excellent shows.

Really admirable and honest of you to include the emotional part at the end. As a dude the same age as you (and growing up watching and listening to you) I can confirm you are not alone! As far as I can research it has to do with the decline in our testosterone and other age aspects which should help take away a little of the sadness. Chemicals mate, chemicals! Rejoice in your old fartiness with us all and ball your eyes out and feel good afterwards.

As usual another fab and insightful show. Love to hear YOU get interviewed and hear more about your jingles which are toe tapping, kick arse mini choons. Sorry I adore them.

I love you. BYE!

Bless all you touchy-feels types (married to one and mother of one), I was so touched by Adam's genuine emotion. Stop Making Sense seminal for me too - and one moment in particular, towards the end of Once In a Lifetime, as he sings "Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us" with four other band members in profile. Sublime.

I cried when Marc mentioned Jason Molina in this very podcast - Jason's music was such a huge part of my twenties I was devastated when he died, and any mention usually brings a tear to my eye, certainly no less the older I get. Great to hear that Marc is a fan!

I'm a 35 year old bloke, and not previously a cry-baby. Yet, as I get older, I find any slightly sad video wells me up - especially if it's about an animal that was rescued. I never considered this something that happens as we age. Thought I was just becoming weak minded. I always thought older men grew less emotional, and colder with age.

Even hearing you get upset, I had to wipe a little tear away. How pathetic is that! We are a generation of softy pants. But maybe that's a good thing - sensitive, modern men and that.

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes
