Broadcast Times: Sunday at 7pm on 93.9FM and 11pm on AM820

 Despite Marc’s wishes to the contrary, Jon Hamm is not much like Don Draper at all. In a Cat Ranch chat, Jon reveals what it was like to grow up in St. Louis, why he hung around a lot of alternative comedy shows in the 90s, and why a role on Mad Men saved his career.

Then Bryan Cranston talks to Marc about what led him to the role of Walter White in Breaking Bad. Along the way he almost became a cop, worked alongside some carnies, and was briefly wanted for murder.

Marc Maron seems to have no idea of how to handle a serious conversation. His strange habit of laughing while Molly was explaining some of the most horrifying things that could happen to a person, especially a child, is very disturbing. To ask a child of an alcoholic if her father was a "fun" drunk shows his lack of understanding and really speaks to his limitations as an interviewer. If he can't make a joke out of what someone says he has no idea of how to respond. I don't think that Marc is stupid, but it does seem that he just doesn't grasp that there are situations that really aren't right for acting silly. I hope he gets to read this and can make an effort to broaden his way of conducting an interview.
