Bruce Springsteen guests on Marc Maron’s most recent “WTF” podcast, aired on January 2. Springsteen and Maron talk about Springsteen’s childhood and the relationship between him and his father and how that relationship was shaped through mental illness.
In the interview Springsteen also regards Donald Trump’s upcoming presidency, calling Trump “un-American” and questioning his competence.
“I’ve felt disgust before, but never the kind of fear that you feel now. It’s as simple as the fear of, is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job? Forget about where they are ideologically. Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in the position of such responsibility?”
