WTF with Marc Maron

Episode 869 - Greta Gerwig

Like the protagonist of her new film Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig grew up in Sacramento, spent the summer going to the state fair, had a complicated relationship with her mother, and escaped to institutes of higher learning in New York City. Marc and Greta talk about the desire to get out from under the weight of your home town, how that tension translated into her acting career, and where she was coming from when she wrote and directed Lady Bird. This episode is sponsored by Spotify, Zelle, Stamps.com, and HelloFresh.
