1039 Mark Malkoff, host, "The Carson Podcast"

Mr. Media Interviews by Bob Andelman

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that Mark Malkoff is probably the most and best prepared podcast host in the world. If you’ve ever listened to his show, “The Carson Podcast,” you know what I’m talking about. With its singular focus on the career of the late Johnny Carson, host of “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” – and Mark is always careful to say the show’s full name, so I will be, too—“The Carson Podcast” is the essence of a great podcast.

TMO Background Mode Interview with Host of The Carson Podcast Mark Malkoff

Background Mode

Mark Malkoff is a comedian, filmaker, and the host of The Carson Podcast in which he talks with guests about legendary talk show host Johnny Carson. His guests include stand-up comics who debuted on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, individuals who worked on the show, and entertainers who were influenced by Carson. I chatted with Mark about his early jobs on various TV shows, sketch comedy, and video projects. As a comedian, he’d always been fascinated by Johnny Carson. It was Peter Jones (PBS) who encouraged Mark to do a podcast all about Carson’s Tonight Show. Mark told me about how he lines up guests and how he prepares. In 180+ podcasts, Mark has learned a lot about Mr. Carson’s personal life and the details of show’s production. Mark enthusiastically shares it all.
