It’s podcasting history right here.
Last Friday, President Barack Obama indeed came to Marc Maron’s garage, albeit a super safe version of Marc’s garage that was covered in pop up tents and a Secret Service detail to do an episode of WTF.
They chatted for just over around an hour in a conversation that, because it is podcasting and of the noted way that Maron conducts interviews, is more intimate and free flowing probably any interview that Obama has had. Thus, you get to go from talking about the tragedy in Charleston last week all the way to talking about Pryor and Dick Gregory.
Listen to this milestone for both podcasting and WTF with Marc Maron here.
