Episode 806 - Mark Lanegan / Mac DeMarco


Thu, Apr 27, 2017


Mark Lanegan is the soft-spoken elder statesman of the '90s Seattle grunge scene.

Mon, Apr 24, 2017

Kamau Bell stops by to talk about some of his projects and winds up talking with Marc about pretty much everything going on in the world. This episode is sponsored by Squarespace and Blue Apron.
