Marc Maron is twice divorced, a recovering addict, a three-time failure as a liberal radio pundit and a veteran comic who, over the past 20-plus years, has watched many of his peers rise to household-name status while he’s remained mired in obscurity. He’s not complaining, though. Not as much as he used to, at least. And with good reason: His podcast, WTF (it stands for what you think it does), has become a standard-bearer for the medium. Ostensibly an interview show featuring Maron’s comedy-world colleagues—though he's now welcomed everyone from Bryan Cranston to Fiona Apple—it often morphs into a public therapy session through the host’s uncanny ability to pry astonishing candor out of his guests. It’s not surprising that Maron is so adept at this kind of emotional spelunking. Once described as the neurosis of Woody Allen communicated with the fury of Iggy Pop, his stand-up is marked by almost uncomfortable levels of unvarnished honesty. Thanks largely to WTF, more people are now coming out to see him live. Could it be that this most caustic of comedians is finally feeling...satisfied? Based on his last comedy album, 2011's This Has to Be Funny, not entirely. Lucky us.
