Woody Allen was recently on Alec Baldwin's podcast and the allegations were, ahem, touched upon and they both moved onto another subject. In fact, the whole interview so sycophantic,  Baldwin very clearly wants to be in another Allen film.

That surprises me that Maron's not managed to get Steve Martin before now although, out of those three mentioned, I'd love to hear Larry David on WTF.

He said he'd tried to get Steve Martin on but he would only agree to it if they focussed on his banjo career.

I've just had a look at the complete list of episodes so far, and other notable omissions are...

Carol Burnett
Chevy Chase
Whoopi Goldberg
Rick Moranis
Eddie Murphy
Bill Murray
Mort Sahl
Martin Short

Bill Murray would be a golden goose that’s for sure. Chevy’s been on Gilbert Gottfried’s podcast before so I suspect it’s probably a personal choice as I think it would be a personality clash.

Maron’s no Mike Read after all.

Jon Stewart has never been on and most likely never will because of his 'uncomfortable history' with Maron.

Tbf there are a LOT of people with a bad history with Maron that he ended up getting on and apologising to on his show but yeah I think Stewart categorically said no way.

Yeah agreed on Larry David, that would be probably the one I would most like to hear.

Carrey very close to sounding like a Jon Wurster character in that one.

Maron's interview with Ice-T is really good and interesting. There's a slightly eggy moment where Ice-T, despite coming across as a paragon of sense during the rest of their chat, almost gives credence to insane Covid-19 conspiracy theories, but Maron swiftly changes the subject.

I have no idea how Maron has managed to carry on with this show following the death of his partner. Ploughing on with work is, I guess, his way of dealing with grief. It's keeping him occupied. Poor guy, my heart goes out to him; he must be in so much pain at the moment.

Did he ask him if he considers himself the modern equivalent of Wordsworth?

Yes, but Maron brushed him off.
