Singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III talks life, love and Roman numerals. The prolific musician tells Marc about the heyday of the folk music scene, the late-in-life acting career he didn't expect, and the burden of having talented singer-songwriter children who turn his transgressions into songs. Plus, writer-director-producer (and Loudon Wainwright fan) Judd Apatow stops by to talk about getting back on the standup stage for his Netflix special, Judd Apatow: The Return. This episode is sponsored by Spotify, Zelle, Stamps.com, and How Did This Get Made.

Judd Apatow is one of the most prolific and successful creators of comedy in Hollywood. But at age 16, Judd was doing his own radio show not unlike WTF. In Part 1 of a two-part interview, you’ll hear rare clips of young Judd in 1983 talking to Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno and Garry Shandling, well before the big breaks that launched them all to superfame. Marc finds out what those interviews taught Judd and how they impacted his own career.
