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


Since 2009, WTF with Marc Maron has been one of the most widely listened to and influential podcasts in the country.

Each week over a million and a half listeners tune in to hear Marc and a guest do something remarkable: talk.

Described as a "must-listen" by the New York Times, WTF perfects the lost art of conversation while attracting guests as varied and prominent as Amy Schumer, Jerry Seinfeld, and even President Barack Obama.

In the course of more than 700 hours of conversation, Marc Maron and his incredible roster of guests have tackled life's most pressing issues and deepest concerns. Waiting for the Punch is not simply a collection of these interviews, but instead a running narrative of the world's most recognisable names working through the problems, doubts, joys, triumphs, and failures we all experience.

With chapters covering parenting, childhood, relationships, and more, Punch is an everyman's 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.

Robin Williams opens up about the burdens of fame and his struggles with addiction. Taken together, these voices form a chorus discussing both life's biggest questions, and smallest, most intimate moments.

Full of stories that are at once laugh-out-loud funny, heart breakingly honest, joyous, tragic and powerful.
