Guest talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them.
Each episode recounts true stories that revolve around a theme, such as "Babysitting" and "Switched at Birth."
Comedian Marc Maron interviews famous people.
Who are you and what do you do?
After twelve years writing The Ethicist for the NY Times magazine, I’m working on Person Place Thing, an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Our guests come prepared to talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers.
What podcasts do you listen to?
Our show, Person Place Thing, of course. (Too braggy? Just braggy enough?) First-timers might begin on episode #47 with Tim Carvell & Daniel Radosh, writers for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, or #43 with New Yorker writer Susan Orlean, or #38 with designers Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan.
How do you listen to podcasts?
