You’ve probably heard by now that President Obama stopped by Marc Maron’s garage last week as the latest guest on his popular podcast WTF. Besides the president’s personal life and the politics they discussed, I was also especially interested in exactly how one gets their space (in this case, garage) ready for a visit from the President of the United States. Maron describes it and it’s quite the process! Here are a few tidbits.
First things first; Maron says he did “clean up a little bit. I moved the piles into the house.”
For security, the secret service closed off Maron’s street to traffic, swept his house with a bomb-sniffing dog, tented the driveway and even installed a sniper on his neighbor’s roof. He describes security everywhere and five or six people with headphones listening to and monitoring their interview.
Obama even enables Maron’s hoarding tendencies!
Maron: Sometimes I’m like, do I need that thing anymore? There’s a book I didn’t read 30 years ago. Do I really need that?
Obama: You never know when you’re gonna need that. It could be the book you need to read in 5 years.
