Live episodes of WTF with Marc Maron usually involve multiple guests, but for a recent show taped at South By Southwest, the exclusive guest was Jeffrey Tambor, of The Larry Sanders Show, Arrested Development, and other works done before my time. Like …And Justice For All. I just learned about …And Justice For All.

Michael Cera was a recent guest on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. It wasn’t one of Maron’s harder-hitting interviews and Cera seemed cognizant of that, and almost desirous of being angst-ridden in a way that, for example, stand-up comedian Todd Glass was when Glass came out on Maron’s podcast.
For his part, Maron didn’t seem to be irked by Cera’s innocence in the way that other unscarred individuals can actually provoke Maron. Perhaps it’s the new, gentler Marc Maron, buoyed by the recent news that IFC will be producing ten episodes of a TV series starring the WTF host.

One of the main reasons I keep up with Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast is that, when he interviews fellow comedians, I get a much better sense of how they think. Other shows can give me their biographies or allow them to do a routine or two, but with Maron doing his thing, I tend to get a sense of how they function, as both people and performers. That was definitely the case with his recently released interview with Fred Willard.

Paul Gilmartin is a stand-up comedian who was, until recently, the host of Dinner and a Movie on TBS. No, I never saw it. Gilmartin only came onto my radar last week as the guest on the WTF podcast with Marc Maron.
Gilmartin’s appearance led me to check out his own podcast, The Mental Illness Happy Hour. It’s quite common in the podcast world for hosts to become guests and guests to become hosts, and Maron was a guest last year when the two comedians discussed the constitution of comedy.
