Marc Maron is a comedian who has appeared on everything from Late Night with Conan O’Brien to VH1, HBO, and Comedy Central, but it’s his work outside the standup comedy circuit that has been getting him a lot of attention these past few years.
Back in 2009, Marc decided to start hosting a twice-weekly podcast called WTF With Marc Maron featuring candid conversations with comedians and celebrities. Since then, the podcast has built a massive audience and routinely appears at the top of the charts on iTunes. It’s so popular that even President Obama wanted to be interviewed on the show.
Marc joins me on this special live-recorded episode of The Growth Show to talk about the future of podcasting, how the interview with President Obama came to be, and how he’s been able to build and grow his audience.
