Marc Maron is exactly the guy the devoted followers of his podcast “Wtf” imagine.

They expect him to be funny, articulate, insightful and slightly profane. The listeners — whom Maron usually greets with “How’s it going, What the Fuckineers, What the Fucksters?” or other similar nicknames — then get an intimate monologue about Maron’s life before an hourlong-or-more interview with everyone from Iggy Pop to Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, David Sedaris, Cheech and Chong and almost every comedian — up-and-coming and otherwise — on the club circuit these days.

“I like working,” says Maron. “As I get older, people ask me, ‘What do you want to get out of life?’ Well, I’d like to not die broke and have insurance.”

He’s that guy. But taller.

“There’s nothing more intimate than audio. The relationship people have with it is very specific and individual, and very powerful,” Maron says.
