Episode 55: Joe Swanberg, creator of ‘Easy’ on Netflix  

This week host Christina Jeurling Birro is joined by Joe Swanberg – maybe one of the hardest working filmmakers in the indie world with 29 director credits to his name at the age of 35. His work has been at the center of the mumblecore film movement that has also included the Duplass brothers, Lena Dunham and many more. Often low budget, featuring naturalistic dialogue and relationship focused, his films like Digging for Fire, Happy Christmas and Drinking Buddies have attracted talent like Orlando Bloom, Anna Kendrick, Jack Johnson and Olivia Wilde. Swanberg has been called an American auteur and critics have compared him to Lars von Trier and even Ingmar Bergman. His latest project Easy, Netflix for which he is the creator, writer and director, is probably more mainstream than his previous work, but does not stray away from his usual themes. Each episode focuses on a different relationship and stars Marc Maron, Dave Franco, Malin Akerman, Orlando Bloom, Hannibal Buress, and many more. Don’t miss this portrait interview with Swanberg where he shares his work process, how he includes his own life and family into his films, what it’s like to punch a critic, why he hates movie awards - and much more!

Episode 751 - David Crosby  

David Crosby readily admits that he probably shouldn't be alive. Drug addiction, alcoholism and health issues have taken their toll but have not knocked David out. He's still making music and going out on tour, but he had a little time to talk with Marc about The Byrds, CSN, Neil Young, Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Woodstock, Altamont, Melissa Etheridge, and much more.

Episode 749 - Larry Clark  

Larry Clark does not consider himself a photographer and he explains to Marc why he doesn't. But that didn't stop a young Marc Maron from being drawn to Larry's raw, unflinching photos and his uncompromising art. Larry talks with Marc about his photography, his experiences in war and in prison, his struggle to get clean, and his films Kids, Bully, Another Day in Paradise, and Wassup Rockers. This episode is sponsored by Comedy Central, Squarespace, Blue Apron, and Casper Mattress.

Episode 746 - John Prine  

If you're wondering how John Prine, one of America's greatest living songwriters, came up with such great lyrics, just look to your mailbox. John tells Marc how his days as a mailman provided him time to ruminate on music, which led to his discovery by Kris Kristofferson, his friendship with Steve Goodman, and his encounters with Bob Dylan, Sam Phillips, Bonnie Raitt and others.

(Plus- you’ll never forget his pirate story!)

After 9/11, Nothing Was Funny  

In the days and weeks after the towers fell, nothing felt funny anymore. Comedians on late night TV and in the comedy clubs of New York questioned their own judgement. Brooke spoke to Will Ferrell back in 2001 and Marc Maron on the tenth anniversary of the attacks about the place of humor in tragedy. We revisit both conversations on this podcast extra.

Ep 66: Captain's Knuck (S3E19)  

When Captain Picard needs a backrub, Doctor Crusher prescribes a vacation. Trouble is, the all-inclusive resort Commander Riker recommends appears to be "full service," and the pages in his book aren't spill proof. Can Picard go "chest to chest" with Riker? Is there any job on the Enterprise dangerous enough for red pants? What is "low knuck"? It's the episode where we prescribe to "The Maron Rule."

Our audio problems are fixed forever, Dick Supporters on have a new enhanced video feed, my Life Coach stops by and doesn't plug his Twitter, Marc Maron gets triggered, I why Maddox is now giving away the Biggest Problem Bonus Episodes, a New Challenger emerges from reddit, Dustin digs himself out of a hole, and I talk about Mike Tyson, God, and my hand being accosted by a man's hoodie at a Trailer Park Boys show. All this and more this week on The Dick Show!

Did you know most Americans suffer family tragedies every day of the week? If you've ever tried to hire anyone, you know this to be true. It's a devastating epidemic that needs the attention of our leaders. But first...

The Dick Show's beef with Marc Maron has reached new heights of rancor and vitriol and explodes spectacularly! The man with the mug and Obama's WTF-BFF has become so incensed with Dick Show listeners, that he's e-stuttering in rage! You know you've pissed someone off when they're making typos. That's internet-iquette 101. If you make a typo, your argument is invalid. Here is the beef as it unfolded.

.@dickmasterson Tried to help @marcmaron a few months ago. He refused to listen or believe anyone deserves better.— Daniel David Larson (@D4NDL) August 19, 2016

@shan9ne @dickmasterson great. Should be pproud. Child.— marc maron (@marcmaron) August 18, 2016

@dickmasterson I over did it— Biggie Talls (@shan9ne) August 23, 2016

You sure did. Speaking of being blocked on Twitter...

What is 50% of zero? It can't be zero, can it? I ask because Maddox has decided to give away all Bonus Episodes of The Biggest Problem in the Universe and my cut is now 50% of zero. I kid. But I have come to realize that Maddox's principles are like my ideal libertarian government. They're so small, you can barely see them--or they don't actually exist except in theory and you need some sort of extreme cognitive dissonance to pretend they exist in practice. The metaphor still holds up! I wonder what to do about it. Hopefully, listeners have better suggestions than my Life Coach.

Sovash, a man who claims to speak for all of The Dick Show on reddit, calls in to air his grievances surrounding Dustin and also to hold me to task for several of my Dick Show campaign promises, namely the promise of hiring a "News Babe" to read the news and I don't mean Sean. I make a number of excuses and discuss my thoughts on beautiful women in Los Angeles in general. Next week, I'll read the Craigslist ad I posted to lure in a young ingenue and you guys can tell me where I fucked up.

Listener Derek Gooley sends Sean a gift to solve his audio issues. It must have worked because we didn't change anything else and this show went off without a hitch. I'll post a picture of it when I find my phone.

See you next Tuesday!
