just awesome all around
maron on WTF too.
Just recently gave Maron a try after hearing his interview on the Nerdist. I'm not completely sold on him. His interviews are great but his comedy/rants at the start of the podcast aren't great in my opinion. Comedians who swear to try and get laughs rather than say something intelligent I find are a little lazy. Don't get me wrong, I think he is better than 90% of the stuff out there and WTF has probably quickly become my #4 podcast, but his opening (What the Fuck buddies, What the fuck friends, what the fuckonauts, etc) and the shitty (no pun intended) plug he does for the coffee rub me the wrong way.
FYI, my top 4 podcasts are probably Nerdist (almost perfect with interesting guests), Rich Eisen NFL network podcast (outstanding for what it is, and I want to be Rich Eisens friend), Freakonomics (really interesting but wish it was more regular) and WTF
