Joanna Newsom delivered a dazzling two-song performance on Kimmel last week. Today she’s back in the spotlight as the latest guest on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.

The singer-songwriter talked about her stellar 2015 LP, Divers and how she’s evolved musically over the last decade, what it was like growing up in California’s Nevada City, a weed-growing community, and her experiences with producers Van Dyke Parks and past WTF podcast guest Steve Albini.

Newsom also discussed her relationship with husband and comedian Andy Samberg (“I’m awestruck by what he does”), as well as Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, the first-ever LP she purchased at age 16 (“That album has to have influenced me more than anything…”).
