Waiting for the Punch
Waiting for the Punch: Words to Live by from the WTF Podcast | Marc Maron
36 posts | 6 read | 10 to read
"Im British, so Im medically dead inside, but even I cant help but open up whenever I talk to Marc. He uses his honestly like a scalpel, cutting himself open in front of anyone hes talking to, and in doing so, invites you to do the same. " John Oliver Each week over a million and a half listeners tune into WTF with Marc Maron to hear Marc and a guest do something remarkable: talk. Waiting for the Punch is not simply a collection of these interviews, but instead something more wondrous: a running narrative of the worlds most recognizable names working through the problems, doubts, joys, triumphs and failures we all experience. With each chapter covering a different topic: parenting, childhood, relationships, sexuality, success, failures and others, Punch becomes a sort of everymans guide to life. Barack Obama candidly discusses the challenges of the presidency, and the bittersweet moments of seeing your children grow up and away from you. Bruce Springsteen speaks on the dual nature of desperation to both motivate and devastate. Amy Schumer recounts the pain of a parents divorce. At once laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly honest, joyous, tragic and powerful, Waiting for the Punch is a book to be read from cover to cover, but it is also one to return to again and again.

Remember that slogan, "Hugs are better than drugs?" You remember that? Bumper stickers. I remember when I first saw that, I thought, "Oh, jeez, I don't know if that's true. I never went to the Bronx to get somebody to hug me." --Artie Lange

A cross section of Maron's WTF podcast arranged into thematic sections. You get a collage of voices around the broad topic which both works & doesn't. This isn't just the podcast in written form but it doesn't really become it's own thing remaining simply a supplement

Amazing read, even if you've listened to most of these interviews before.

it's rare that Maron actually talks in his interviews/conversations, usually it's worth it

Yep that's the man himself, Marc Maron, in conversation with Sen. Al Franken last month at Book Expo! ❤️ this book IF you're a fan of the WTF with Marc Maron podcast. He and his producer Brendan McDonald have done a fantastic job of putting this volume together.
