It's the end of an era. Or, rather, the echoes of an era's end. Live regular performances of Thrilling Adventure Hour came to a close months ago, but the podcasted segments of it kept on. Until now.

Now, about that N-word. Naturally, the fact that the President utters it has mostly been taken out of context: "Obama said the n-word!" Frankly, in the way it's being used -- as a reference, really -- there's been a lot more made of it than needed.

Maron's eponymous IFC series returns for a second season May 8 at 10 p.m., with guests including Conan O'Brien, Sarah Silverman, Ray Romano, David Cross, Karen Kilgariff, Rob Riggle, Wyatt Cenac, Bill Burr and more.
