I dont think Marron is the best interviewer, but hes gotten some surprising and candid interviews over the years. I think the combination of the long form, the environment (one on one in a garage), and self-deprecation put some people at ease. I'd like to see him give Brady a go.
His interview with Hunter Biden this week was really good. He had plenty of skepticism in his intro, both of Hunter's innocence and long term sobriety, and he didn't demure. It was eerie how much he sounds like his dad (with a smoker's rasp).

Oral history of Gronk's college years:

The 'monster' from Club G: An oral history of Rob Gronkowski's Arizona years – The Athletic

But Rob loved his visit here. He loved the weather. And I think there were a lot of other things that I won’t go into detail that he loved, but they were usually walking around with not a lot on.
It was literally the first day of practice, going into my fourth year during team period. Stoops walks up and stands in front of us. He points at Gronkowski and says, “Put him in.” And that exact moment was the end of our playing careers.

Yeahhh, I was there about 10 years before Gronk. I'm always surprised we can't recruit a competent football team. It's a pretty great place to go to college.

I worked with a kid who was an offensive lineman at Arizona while Gronk was there and he claims the back injury was due to the slip and slide, not from lifting weights.

Speaking of fun guys, George Kittle was interviewed just now on Good Morning Football (Nate Burleson, Kyle Brandt, etc.). They came around to asking him what does he think about the possibility of players being able to choose from a wider array of numbers; maybe Kittle would like #11 for example. So George says "I have to quote what Mr. Tom Brady said about this." Mr. Tom Brady! Hadn't heard him called that before. What Kittle said Tom said was that if this came about it could confuse defenses more because they'd have a tougher time sorting types of receivers coming at them by the numbers they're wearing. Back to what Kittle called him, I'm sure Tom would say "Mr. Tom Brady is my father. Call me Tom."

Gronk’s the best. I was so happy he was healthy enough to show out in the Super Bowl. After all he’s been through coming back from injuries and surgeries over his career, he deserved it.

I have a feeling he’s going to be cheered every time he makes a catch against the Pats in Foxboro this season
