Marc tries not to fanboy out too much with Anne Hathaway in the garage. While he attempts to keep it together, they talk about her path from party girl to motherhood, the lessons gleaned from messed up relationships, dealing with the aggressive anonymity of the Internet, and the real monsters in her new movie Colossal. Plus, Aimee Mann just released what Marc thinks is her best album, so she stops by to play one of the songs from it. This episode is sponsored by The AV Club on Fusion, J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only on HBO, and Stamps.com.
Aimee Mann serenades the Cat Ranch as only she can. Marc and Aimee wander down the path of her life, from a traumatic story of childhood turmoil to early pop success in ‘Til Tuesday to an acclaimed career as a singer/songwriter.
