Ice cream Addiction

Marc Maron has been a stand-up comedian for his whole adult life and more recently started a very popular podcast. He interviews mostly comedians but also actors and musicians about their lives and careers. He starts each episode with a little comedy and casual update on his life. He is honest and self-reflective which appeals to the therapist in me. 


Don't be scared off by the title of the show "WTF" (which stands for what you think it stands for) or scared off by his cursing.


Anyway, Marc is very open about his struggles with food which he relates back to his mother's struggles and disordered eating. 


Here is a clip of him talking about his ice cream addiction and his very critical voice and dialogue that goes along with his addiction. It starts at about 6 minutes in.


I like this clip because he really breaks down the details of how harsh we can be with ourselves - the types of conversations and dialogue that goes on in our heads. Can you relate to it?
