Good lord. The Todd Glass WTF interview is beautiful and heartbreaking. This is a perspective on coming out that nobody gives these days, and it should be required listening for every person in America. Get on board.
I adore Todd Glass and Marc Maron could not be better in this case. The entire thing is worthwhile, it is sincere and heartbreaking and funny. Closer to the end of the podcast you feel a new world opening up for Todd, his feelings of relief at finally being able to live honestly as well as the anxiety and thrill of the unknown. You want him to get everything he deserves.
As Dave Holmes says, this is a perspective we do not hear very much anymore. Todd is in his mid-forties and his much of his thought process is specific to his generation. For this reason I think this could really resonate with older people in a way that the campaigns aimed at kids haven’t. I really can’t see my father or grandfather listening to this and not feeling some sense of understanding and empathy.
I am so thankful that the podcast format exists. There is no way something this long form and unrestricted could have been widely distributed in the past.
Also of note: Todd followed up on all of this and talked about the response he received on his own podcast released yesterday.
