Episode 1098 - Ronan Farrow Ronan Farrow needed to come to terms with a lot of things. He processed the pain and trauma that existed in his family during his upbringing. He came to an understanding with his own ambition and drive. And he realized that the deck is stacked against victims and survivors of abuse the world over. These things all contributed to his current work as an investigative journalist, his Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting, and his bestselling book about it all, Catch and Kill. Ronan also talks with Marc about going to college at age 11, serving in the Obama administration, working in Afghanistan, and being a Rhodes Scholar. This episode is sponsored by Squarespace and Scotts Turf Builder Thick'R Lawn.

And believe it or not, they find some answers! It&rsquo;s the perfect talk for a new year as we head into the unknown.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Episode 1231 - William Zabka William Zabka spent the &lsquo;80s playing a variety of bullies all seemingly modeled after his star-making performance in his first movie, The Karate Kid.

He tells Marc how he expanded his life beyond the typecasting, through music, through family, through world travel, through the arduous mounting of an Oscar-nominated short. And now, with Cobra Kai, it&rsquo;s all come full circle, as William finally gets the chance to explore the depth and pathos of the bully who started it all, Johnny Lawrence.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Episode 1196 - Rick Glassman Not unlike a lot of comedians, Marc&rsquo;s relationship with Rick Glassman started out with an apology. But that apology led to both of them liking each other more than they expected.

And Marc is able to relate to Rick&rsquo;s desire to start doing comedy as a way to control the laughter coming at you. They also talk about Rick&rsquo;s time on the show Undateable and his own podcast, Take Your Shoes Off, which is more than a name, it&rsquo;s a way of life.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
