Listen 20:14

Marc Maron has interviewed over 900 people. Admittedly, he can't remember each and every one of them, and he refuses to listen back to any of them, but he says that's because he'd rather focus on what's happening in the moment as opposed to reviewing his work.

Many of his interviews, chronicled on his WTF podcast, have now been compiled into a book called Waiting for the Punch: Words to Live by From the WTF Podcast (out Oct. 10). Maron joins Tom Power today to discuss his interviewing style, what he's learned about interviewing over the years and why people have trouble connecting over in-person conversations nowadays.
