A few days ago, President Barack Obama sat down with comedian and podcast superstar Marc Maron to shoot the breeze on the WTF podcast, making him the first sitting president to appear on the podcast featured on IFC’s Maron.
The episode generated a lot of buzz and during the interview, Maron kept his cool and handled himself with the utmost chill. Immediately after the President left, though, Maron recorded a stream-of-consciousness reaction in which he admitted how emotionally overwhelmed he was by the gravity of the experience, and his conversation with WTF producer Brendan McDonald is featured on today’s episode of the podcast. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of this historic event below.
