Mike Schmidt on WTF

As much as I like Mike Schmidt, he came across as his own biggest problem in this interview.  Or at least that's what Marc seems to have concluded.  When Schmidt talks about all of the alienation within his family; of his five brothers he's only still speaking to one; Marc says something like "the common denominator in all of these relationships is you".

After the several times that Schmidt alludes to the failure of his career in comedy to launch, Maron also suggests that perhaps this is due to a lack of volition.

Dunno.  I don't understand why Schmidt is only a marginally successful comedian, and Maron is much more successful.

Maybe this interview felt like the big guy picking on the little guy.  I don't know what to conclude, really.
