Marc Maron: Comedian, Podcaster, Country Singer-Songwriter? Marc joins us this week half to discuss country music and movies and half to impress his girlfriend. I think between his story of tearing up during Chopped and reflections on his time spent in Graceland he proves his worth, even if he isn't the best Chart Dart player in the world. He even sticks around for a bonus chart honoring Kulap's proud heritage (sort of). Pop in a lozenge and enjoy!

This is just a guess but I'm thinking "Mater" or however it's spelled for the Cars 2 movie is a nickname like "Tater." Like short for 'tomater' or 'potater' being from a rednecky part of Virginia originally. I heard lots of people refered to as 'tater' or of course 'bubbah.' Anyways just spreading my southern knowledge for y'all. Love ya, keep summahing. -Goody

I like when Marc goes on "frivolous" podcasts that force him to lighten up for a change - he's always a great sport about it. Good show as always!
Regarding Lady Gaga hogging the bonus chart - she was one of the vocal advocates encouraging foreign tourism to return to Japan after the nuclear plant debacle. Americans have been pretty level headed throughout, but some European countries are still recommending zero travel to the entire country, which is hurting both tourism and international business relations/partnerships for Japan. So amidst a lot of worry about the nation's future, Japan has latched onto hope anywhere they can find it, whether it be Lady Gaga, or more recently the womens soccer team. As much as I don't give a crap about Gaga's music, it's nice to have pop star who, underneath the make-up, looks to be a genuinely intelligent, socially conscious, and well rounded person.
