Yeah, Marc's sitting down with Robin Williams for an hour. No big deal. So what do you talk about with an international comedy superstar? How about alcoholism, cocaine, divorce, joke stealing, heart surgery, fame, Richard Pryor, jealousy, and Twitter? Yeah. That should do it.

    The thing that I hope Robin always new is that so few people will be really remembered by the masses for excelling at their "thing" whatever that thing happens to be. For Robin, 30 years from now people will still talk about his groundbreaking work as that is the ultimate praise.

    Listened to this a few hours after Robin Williams died. Therapeutic and haunting all at once. RIP Robin and thanks Marc for giving us the opportunity to revisit one of the greats.

    I listened to this great episode a couple of years back when I first signed up for premium... I wish I could get it to play right now. I miss him already. RIP Robin. :(

    Does Robin Williams have a partnership with Kutchie Pelaez in those Key West restaurants known as Kutcharitaville's or is that just a rumor that Jimmy Buffett got started? We sure would like to know.

    My subscription has just been repaid in full. Listening to any more episodes will be piracy. Just the way I like it.

    I've never heard Williams sound so calm, serene and centered. He's usually "ON" during interviews. Here, he's just himself. I think it's the tone that Marc sets. Great work.

    Again, walking around the neighborhood, laughing like a loon to this funny, interesting, honest interview. Robin Williams like you\'ve never quite heard him before. And always a pleasure to get inside the \"business\" from the perspective of the real human beings who live it. Quite a gem, I must say.

    Robin\'s retelling of the Richard Pryor\'s bit about God coming to pick up his son was everything I love about comedy. It was hilarious, deep, and had a dark edge. I didn\'t think that moment would be topped...then Robin goes into that genius suicide monologue with his subconscious which absolutely blew me away! That was one of the heaviest, darkest, funniest pieces of comedy that I have ever heard.

    I was a Robin Williams fan early on and then sorta dismissed him when he became a \"real actor\". After hearing this he\'s back on my A-list.

    Excellent job, Marc!

    Marc, I concur with the general consensus here that you are one of the most egregiously underrated interviewers out there today. Your comedic gifts and soul-searching insight lend themselves incomparably well to this format. And the fact that Robin Williams was allowed to be both funny AND focused is as much a testament to you as him. Incredible show with two phenomenal talents.....Now, let\\\'s see if you can get Dane Cook to admit to stealing from Louis C.K. If anyone can, it\\\'s YOU, Sir! TERRIFIC program as always, Marc!

    The Robin Williams interview is PROOF that Marc \\\"inside the actors studio\\\" where he interviews comics and others even. But they must understand that Marc will ask HARD questions. NO SAFETY NET.
    I can see it in my minds eye, Marc doing it on TV. I can see the set, the couches and even some of the BITS. \\\"One Hour: w/Marc Maron\\\".
    And Brendon would be Exec Producer! :)
    And I\\\'d get a nod for the name. \\\")

    Hey everyone,

    We\'re pushing \"Episode 68 - Steven Pearl\" to tomorrow. There are a lot of new WTFers downloading the show this week and we want to give this Robin episode a little room to breathe.

    New episode will be up about 13 hours from now.

    Powwwww! A koala bear just crapped rainbows on my brain. Holy crap, this is the best thing on the Internet.

    Like someone else said, time to quit WTFpod, I don\'t see how this episode can be topped. Go out on the high note. (Not a pun.)

    Last night I listened to the interview again while watching TV wit wifey (using earphones).

    When Williams tells the old joke (which I\\\'ve never heard) about the doctor telling the guy \\\"You gotta stop masturbating.. Why? Because I\\\'m trying to examine you.\\\" I could not stop laughing ... she kicked me out. So I was walking the dogs down a dark lane laughing at that joke for several minutes like the idiot I am. That might be the funniest joke I\\\'ve ever heard.

    Great interview !!

    Marc...you have always been a great interviewer...but you out-did yourself here... No one has ever gotten so much sincerity out of Robin Williams before. I like him more than ever now!
    I\'ve been with you since the very first AAR stuff...amazingly, you do get even more humble, and more concise ( and funnier ) - but I\'m still mad at the way Sam S. could not GET you, or just let you BE, on BRR!

    Good work, man!
    p.s. Good on you Brendan (and great work)...for staying with the Snark!!

    Hi Marc,

    God I wish I was Robbin Williams. I don\'t mean his money, I wish I was sober like him and Marc.


    What a amazing show.


    Truly \"therapy\" for us all, such a gentle man! Such a wonder. I never, ever heard a comedian cop to stealing AND PAYING for stolen jokes; GOD BLESS HIM! This world is a better place because Marc Maron exposed this fallen angel.


    I love you Marc. I love you Robin. Maybe I can get sober someday like you! for now I\'m a drunk.

    Robin Williams. The Fisher King. A landmark podcast.

    You do a great interview Maron. Full of insight, soul and laughs.

    \"Hey Bobby - you still like black pussy?\"
    Seriously, i almost strained my gut laughing!

    Bravo!

    you were right, it\'s a classic.

    one of the funniest, most honest and interesting conversations about humor i\'ve ever heard.

    i want to thank you both for sharing that.

    Haven\'t heard the Robin Williams post yet (I time it with work), but am loving the artwork right now. How long does Nathan Smith take to make these?

    I\'ve enjoyed every episdoe of the podcast. Thought I was supercool getting the scoop on the alternative comics. Who would have thought that the Robin Williams interview would rank amongst the best.
    Well Done.

    You are the Bob Costas of podcasting. (try saying that 10 times fast). Actual real discussions with \"famous\", no bullshit. Amazing, I wish it could have gone on for 5 hours.

    Awesome !!

    Ever since Sedition I have been convinced that Marc is one of the best interviewers going - way underappreciated. This interview locks it in - he was able to do an interview with Robin Williams, was able to go with his stream of consciousness but kept the interview in the real-world in a way you almost never hear with Robin and all the lame interviewers who get the BIG BUCKS out there. It was just wonderful!

    This interview goes to the top of Marc\'s CV :-)

    Well done Marc and Robin.

    Hello from a Malaysian fan.

    Awesome podcast, or awesomest podcast? Sorry for the lameness in that last sentence.

    So much fascinating stuff packed into 1 episode. Best 1-hour of office work distraction ever!

    Beyond great, all downhill from here unless you get in your time machine & get an interview with Richard Pryor or Lenny Bruce ha ha. Love the show, all the interviews are great no matter who you get these days.
