Hear John Darnielle On Marc Maron’s WTF

Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle might be the single greatest talker in all of indie rock; as much as I love Mountain Goats songs, I’ve found myself at live shows, wishing they would end so that he could return to the stage patter. And as anyone who’s ever listened to The Sunset Tree or heard Darnielle drop the world “heroin” into casual conversation can attest, he is also a man with a harrowing and fascinating past. All of that means that he’s an ideal guest for WTF, the podcast on which comedian Marc Maron expertly dissects his guest’s biographies and neuroses. Now Darnielle has appeared on the show, and you can find his episode here.
