To honor the 10th anniversary of the form, Slate put together a list of its 25 favorite podcast episodes, ever. Topping the chart was a 2010 interview with comedian Louis C.K. conducted on fellow stand-up comedian Marc Maron’s beloved WTF podcast. Maron recently related the story of the interview to Slate’s Mike Pesca.
No, I didn’t think of it as a great interview. He and I had never talked like that. You got to realize that. You know, comics—a lot of these guys, like Dave Attell, I’ve known those guys half my life, and I’ve never talked to any of them for more than 10 or 15 minutes. And also you got to realize that in casual conversation, Louie likes to talk.
