WTF You Should Be Listening To

I know I have not been blogging much lately. I'm still working at my current gig, but I recently got an agent, so I'm also reworking my tv pilot and I barely have time to do anything else. Sorry :) Back to regular programming.

I love a good podcast, so if you or your boss is into listening to them in the car or at the gym, one of the best podcasts I have ever heard is Marc Maron's WTF Podcast. I have seen him do stand-up on tv and always thought he was funny and cute in a brooding neurotic Jew kind of way (yes, even with the slightly odd facial hair and yes I can say that because I am a slightly brooding neurotic Jew myself), but that isn't why I listen. He has interviewed lots of famous people (many of them his friends -- the recent Conan O'Brien ep was particularly spectacular), but it really isn't that so many of his guests are well know that makes it so great either. What really makes the show special is the way Marc gets people to open up and show a side of themselves that most people never see with his mix of self-deprecating humor and empathy. Some of the older eps cost money, but they are worth every penny. The show was even written up earlier this year in the New York Times if you want to read more about it.
