If you’re like me, and you’re as obsessed with comedy as much as Transformers, then WTF With Marc Maron is an essential podcast. It’s comedy nerd heaven. Maron is a longtime stand-up who interviews his stand-up colleagues, as well as other people from throughout the world of comedy, including comedic actors, writers, and sometimes even non-comedy folks.
Today’s new episode of WTF features his Royal Weirdness, Al Yankovic. Al, of course, is known to TransFans as the voice of Wreck-Gar in the recent Transformers: Animated series, and the title track of his classic album Dare To Be Stupid appears on the soundtrack to The Transformers: The Movie.
Although there’s no talk of Transformers, the interview is fairly typical of Al; he’s truly one of the sweetest guys in show business. Maron does manage to get him to talk about a few things you might not hear in a standard press interview. Oh, and keep in mind – as the name might indicate, WTF is uncensored, so it might not be safe for listening at work or in mixed company.
