Episode 507 - Josh Groban

Singer Josh Groban remains strangely indefinable for a guy who sells millions of records and became a public celebrity at age 17. Marc tries to pin down the reasons Josh is not so easily categorized and Josh reveals the aspects of his personality that may come as a surprise to fans of his music. This episode is sponsored by Squarespace, the new movie Obvious Child, and Audible.

If you want to run off 3 boxes of Goo Goo clusters, you’d better be prepared to run to Phoenix (and back). 

Say hi to the brother!

Regarding the last episode of Maron:

Why is everybody in your family crazy and fucked up except you? Why do you come out as the sensible, balanced adult? Not only is this really vain and unrealistic (and perhaps even exploitative of your family) but it makes for very bad tv - boring, unfunny and not engaging. And it’s weird because until now the new season seemed pretty good.

If you’re not willing to make fun of yourself and expose your flaws (like you do so well in the podcast), then maybe you shouldn’t write for TV. Sorry, man, but this last one was a real turd.

^^ Then maybe you shouldn’t write for this comment section . . . I dont remember Marc ever portraying himself as sensible & balanced on ‘Maron’.  Funny’s funny, man.  Don’t be such a weenie.  This new season has been really great . . . why do people feel such a need to shit on everything?

Bill June 20, 2014 at 4:54 am

Hey, I agree with you. I think that the new season has been great too, and much more well written than the first. Except for this last episode, which seemed like a step back.

But that’s just my opinion. Didn’t mean to offend or upset.

Joe Tily June 20, 2014 at 5:50 am

^^ nah mate, my fault . . . i’ve just read a lot of shitty comments online in the last couple of days and it wound me up. I did’nt mean to act like the internet comment police.  Anyway, it was cool to see Marc on the last episode of Louie . . . it was a nice little cross-over of their shows.

how dare a person have a single shitty show, among some good shows, i guess.  that’s the standard,huh.

Smitty June 20, 2014 at 7:48 am

i’m not referring to Josh interview,but to Maron.

Bill June 20, 2014 at 8:18 am

True. I guess I wrote that in the “heat of the moment”. Felt cheated or something….. My expectations were a bit higher because of the previous episodes. But yeah, once in a while there might be a stinker. Not a problem. I’m cured now. Carry on.

Love the show

If Josh Groban wanted to emphasize Ziggy Elman’s status as a major player he should have mentioned that he was in Benny Goodman’s big band and can be heard on the very famous Carnegie Hall live recording of Sing, Sing, Sing. In big band swing music it really doesn’t get any bigger than that!

I happened to meet Josh Groban briefly when he in my city for a concert. I like that he was interested in exploring the city and supporting local artists. He was really friendly and his dog was adorable.

....and it’s been an incredible ride this past decade.  Through the incredibly amazing, the bad, also the sweetness and the pit of saddness.  It’s all been good and I wouldn’t change a thing…..well…maybe one thing. smile.  Josh Groban is a class act and his music is heartfelt and resonates in our hearts forever. His funny bone is just the cherry on top of a frickin mountain of hot fudge Sunday.  Rock on!
