Thanks Jonathan. We're playing games with the stars of NBC's Zoe's. playlist Jane Levy and Alex Newell so before our next Game Jane. You were in an evil dead movie, and am I right that you stole, or maybe were gifted. The chainsaw from that movie true which one was it I was gifted it. It's not as fun as saying I. Stole it but. I. Don't know if you guys have seen that movie. It's very gross, and the last sequence in the movie takes place in blood rain, so they set up these towers full of red paint, and I just got paint poured on me for two weeks, and so the chance I have was actually functioning chainsaw, but it got jammed with so much paint that it's broken. Oh, you can't use it now. You can't use it. You should lead by a very angry review on Amazon about that chain to start does not work during blood rain, yeah. I would like to see it. Would you like to play another game? Absolutely I'm in I think we can all agree that. The world is a stressful place. We all have our different ways of coping with it and so today I'm introducing a new character. I am meeting for the first time. Called Calm Vera. Comma furrow awakens with the sun to Meditate in a field on a day of quarantine with her four year old child comma fear will describe something people are using. To deal with their stress, and you just have to guess what it is a great all right. This is for you Jane Okay. Close Your eyes imagine a waterfall cascading off a cliff into a bowl of flour. As, you breathe in the air around you. This mixture will breathe in the yeast. That's also around you. Focus on growth, the mixture has reached the top of the bowl. Discard. What doesn't serve you. Maybe into some waffles..

"Npr's asked me another. I'm Jonathan Coulton. Now here's your host Oprah Eisenberg thank you Jonathan Okay. We have a special guest and he is amazing. We've been wanting to him on the show for years. He hosts the PODCASTS. W T F with Marc Maron. And he has a netflix comedy. Special out right now called. End Times Fun. It's Marc Maron. Hey Mark Hi. Diane really wanted to have me on for years. Yeah Pretty Much. I feel like so the show has been happening for seven years. I distinctly remember like right in the beginning as we were still kind of envisioning how the show would work. You were on our list. However we were in New York you were in L. A. So it had to be done in. It's like my show. You only do live face to face. Yeah because usually we're at the bell house in Brooklyn at the Bell House and Jonathan plays songs. That's right I get it. Yeah now we're stuck in our we're stuck in our home studios now. It's a very very different vibe. All of a sudden now mark. You asked if we'd met before and the truth is yet. When I moved to New York I moved to New York in two thousand and one and I would go to eating it in the lower east side at the old Luna Lounge right doing stand up and I wanted to be part of that show and obviously that was a huge part of your life. Okay so I did meet you. I probably was rude to you or did something bad. Well let's get it out with processes actually honestly. We didn't have a lot of interaction because I was a comic from Canada. Trying to be part of a New York scene. And you guys were all the people doing it. And I you know honestly just wanted to be liked God if people that's Albright so that was that's how they know your name the that from this show but I did it feel it felt like your name was deep in there in my head. So which is you know I think about when I moved there and you know more about it because you were of that scene and I just swooped in but to think back to a time. Where alternative comedy was a thing? It was a thing people were scared of. They were in clubs. Were mad about yeah you know it. It was basically just people trying to create their own stuff. I guess so. Yeah that's for sure I was coming at it from a club. Background in for me That venue just provided the idea that we had to go with something fresh and your improvisational every week or maybe that was what I decided in my head that everyone was supposed to bring new material. I think so. Yeah and that was. That's always been sort of the way I write so to to force me into it on a weekly basis was a very useful tool that I still use. It was easier to do it there than to do it at a mainstream comedy clubs so I still do all of my writing In real time onstage by taking ideas and You know thoughts up there. I don't know how it happens. I really don't. It's like some sort of weird magic but like the new special took me year and a half two years to really sort of bring it all together have a through line and land somewhere and it was sort of evolving right up until the week that I did it and then I really tightened it up and I really made some choices around it. But but I think eating ed or that show down there was Was Really helpful to me So your your special is called at times fun and just came out a couple weeks ago. I mean how does it feel? First of all to have a prophetic comedy special. Because it sounds you could. I could say right now. I am recording a comedy special called end times and people would just assume that I am streaming it from my living room. This week actually recorded this over October. Yeah well I mean these are themes that you know. Certainly they became more immediate to Miami since even the last two real Sort of has underlying has jokes in their referring to that political shift and that was just that was done in two thousand seventeen but the it wasn't the original name out there for the show really but it was the same idea but I wanted to. I was very deadset on calling that show Jeremiad and and Robbie at Netflix. We're not calling it that but that's what it is. It's going to be a Jeremiad. He's like I don't know what that is. No one's GonNa know what it is and you know you have that up on the menu on Netflix. They're not going to know what to comedy. They're not you know you got. They have to know. It's a comedy special and I was like but it has to be Jeremiah. We'll put the definition up next to it. Yeah we love definitions. I'll tell you what the definition is A long mournful complaint or lamentation a list of woes and I thought like and then we'll just put in parentheses but funny and start this special my ad. Yeah but he was like nope. And I'm like fine and then I'm like Okay and Times Fund. That's what it is. That's what it is but I think people were hanging that that that somehow prophetic in this Kovic nineteen thing that we're involved in but I think maybe it's an observation about people and about you know catastrophic times. You know what I was just thinking from the point of view of so you. You know you have this material. That is part of the Special Ed that was re recorded in October. And you're working on it for a year and a half but let's just say the timeline was shifted. You would not. I mean that material. You'd have to throw that material away to certain extent. Everyone's throw their material way now. I mean we don't even know what we're going to perform in front of real people anymore. Live living people would might just have do. We need to collect a an audience through a zoom meetings. How many little boxes head to head boxes can get on one screen go? It's Kinda crazy it's like it's like Podcasting was thing that grew and grew and grew until it. Just now. It's the whole world everybody all the time. Just interpersonal interactions. It's everybody's talking into a microphone wearing earphones. It's true it's true. That is the world we live in March when you started W T F in two thousand and nine. You talked about your broke. Depressed divorced At that moment nobody was doing podcasts. It was not a popular popularized medium nor was it Whether any really methods of making living that you could really bank on. I think that there were a few guys doing something and I was coming out of radio and I needed to do something and we figured out how to do it. But yet the early group. A community of podcasters all sort of had to learn as we went. You know 'cause like the you know after I started. I think Rogan came on and hardwick started. I mean they definitely so I think they started after me Doug Benson might have been going already but there were a handful of us that came out of comedy that knew each other me and Brendon my producer. We didn't know how to what we were going to do. We were taking donations and sending stickers and t shirts people. I was had a house full of you know envelopes. You're going out to people that we could. You know kind of talked into making a monthly donation of five to ten dollars and we really had to just figure out how to you'll make a business out of it so yeah it it. It got a little weird it it is a little weird and I just. I always discourage people I do too. I always discouraged so so. You're doing stand up at the same time that you are starting doing. Wto is doing standup. Almost always job. Touring everything and then of course says the popularity of the podcast increases your shows. I'm sure it just changes for you. Yeah I mean. There was a lot of people early on came over from the radio from the political radio that I was doing but I didn't. I stopped doing politics when I started the podcasts altogether. But some of them hung around but then people started to come around and then I got to be known as an interviewer in his people would love me as an interviewer and be like. But you know I do standup East aggravate me. I didn't know my stand up but as time went on everyone kind of started to know everything. Now glows involved and their unless you're a certain level of every a lot of people still don't know who I am or which me is me like a of people still can watch glow and be like I didn't know he was a stand up or he has a podcast. I mean those questions are asked around the world every day alongside of do you think I have it. My throat hurts so and then of course on top of it. Acting Glow is obviously amazing. Hit on net flex you play Sam. Sylvia the women's wrestling coach and promoter the manager. Yeah the Director Guy. But yeah the acting thing I it's A. It's an odd when I started the podcast. I sort of given up on and really let go of most of my dreams because I was in a bad place I didn't have. I couldn't sell tickets as a comic. I don't even think I had acting representation. I knew I I you know I did comedy. But it wasn't like I was nationally known or or could put ashes and seats. I certainly didn't have an acting career. I've done some radio. And but the thing is weird. That's weird that I do think in my heart that I did let it go like there's a certain point in your life and there's a thing I was always hung up on my head which was like you have to realize limitations limitations being part of being a grownup and and accepting sort of where you are. I knew I didn't have a plan B but I also it didn't seem like I was going to be a big comic or or have any of or get my own. Tv show or any of that. I just had to grow up in deal and I let it go And then because of the podcasts. These opportunities started happening in did my own show for four seasons and I was cast on glow I knew what was up. You know I wasn't afraid of it on the character you know for me. The one problem of being an actor people know me very well from my comedy and from the podcast that they're like well you just kind of do a new. It's like well I think most actors are but you just happen to know me better. So I don't get the The option of mystique which sort of annoying right but but But like Sam you know. He's not quite me doesn't have any self awareness and he's not neurotic so there's there are. There was some there was some craft applied by the way. How are the cats doing with the quarantine? Other great there. I'm here all the time they they love. I think so. I mean it's hard to tell with cats. I think I think they love it. They could be like Wisey here all the time now but oddly you know monkey is doing okay you know. His sister died a few months ago. And and I'm eating but he's okay. He's I gave him subcutaneous fluids last night. But I don't like it's a trip man. But he's he's got hypothyroid and his kidneys are starting to go but he's he's been good and the other one buster. The kitten is getting fat and beats up on the old man monkey. And you know they're all right. I just got the two but But they seem good right now We Have A. We've a silly fun.
