WTF with Marc Maron Podcast - Episode 524 - Bob Mould

The early style of WTF with Marc Maron podcast series was too ‘Dear Diary…’ for my taste, but recently Maron has found his flow as a Gen X cultural documentarian. This Bob Mould interview is an awesome account from one of Gen X’s most influential musicians. Maron connects the dots in many of Mould’s stories through Maron’s personal experiences and passions, revealing an impressive depth of knowledge of the key cultural players during the period. Surprisingly, the new interview format reveals a lot more about Maron than his previous WTF bellybutton gazing. Perhaps the show should now be called ‘Holy Shit.’
