"Public figures as you rarely if ever hear them: strikingly personal, surprisingly open, and profoundly emotional."— Entertainment Weekly"I’m British, so I’m medically dead inside, but even I can’t help but open up whenever I talk to Marc.

  • Jason Miller
    It's not unusual for a Marc Maron interview to blow my mind. Christy Brinkley. Norm MacDonald. Molly Shannon. There have been over 800. The honesty of the conversations come through my podcast player clear and strong, and it often leads me to want to share my new insight or understanding with someon...

    I picked up Waiting for the Punch by Marc Maron and Brendan McDonald while I was at BookCon. It’s a collection of excerpts from Maron’s WTF Podcast, divided into chapters titled “Growing Up,” “Identity,” “Addiction,” “Success,” and the like. With gue...

    I’d never heard Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, but I read parts of this book because I was interested in a lot of the people he interviewed on his show about universal topics like relationships, mental health, and sexuality. I skipped some of the interview subjects whose names I didn’t kno...

    Full disclosure. Before this heartfelt, scatterbrained book landed in my lap, I’d never heard of Marc Maron. According to the bio on this collection of podcast interviews, Waiting For the Punch, he’s a “stand-up comedian, actor, author and host of the WTF podcast,” which my iPhon...
  • Liz Willard
    This book takes blurbs of what famous people have said on the podcast and groups them together by topic (relationships, parenting, failure, etc), and the result is pretty uneven. Some of the impact of each story seems lessened by taking it out of context and plopping it amongst other stories; there ...
