Waiting for the Punch: Words to Live by from the WTF Podcast

"I'm British, so I'm medically dead inside, but even I can't help but open up whenever I talk to Marc. He uses his honesty like a scalpel, cutting himself open in front of anyone he's talking to, and in doing so, invites you to do the same.

    Ah, yes! The thrill of receiving an advance copy of a book you are excited to read was manifest the day this book came in the mail at the library. After becoming a fan of the WTF podcast in 2015 (this is because I heard that President Obama had been a guest on a podcast which records in a man's gara...

    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 read 95% of this---I skipped over some guests' graphic descriptions of events in their lives. I'm a longtime WTF podcast listener, but I haven't heard all the conversations---after all, Marc has now done 840 episodes. Much of this book moved me deeply. (My copy is an ARC. The book will be released...

    In 2009, comedian Marc Maron began interviewing his friends for a twice-weekly podcast he still records in his garage. With each episode of WTF with Marc Maron running an hour or longer, Maron's intimate setting and relaxed, freeform conversational style lures comedians, actors, writers, directors a...

    Collected a lot of my favorite highlights of the podcast over the years. Definitely recommend. Almost like an odd self-help book in a way. ...
