With this episode, Marc Maron becomes RiYL’s first-ever repeat guest, and it’s appropriate. Last time felt rushed
IFC gave us a bit more time to spread out this go-round, though I had a few reservations off the bat. For starters, I was warned this was the last of a day full of interviews. It was also just a couple of days before the premier of the second season of Maron, self-titled sitcom about a self-obsessed comedian hosting a podcast out of his cat-filled Los Angeles garage.
Maron’s 24 hours in New York began by stepping off a redeye from Los Angeles early this morning, into the gauntlet of media interviews, culminating with our 6pm chat in the lobby of his hotel. Turns out jetlag can do wonders for a free-flowing conversation.
By way of background, Maron and I first met years back when I appeared on his Air America video podcast, turning him on to the strange world of electronic cigarettes, back when the things were little more than glowing blue novelties imported from Europe. It didn’t really stick. From there, we talked about drug addiction, Las Vegas, his autobiography, and, you know, podcastin’.
