Waiting For The Punch: Words to Live By from The WTF Podcast by Marc Maron & Brendan McDonald (4 out of 5)

Marc Maron isn’t for everyone. Podcasts aren’t for everyone. I happen to like both Marc Maron and podcasts. I happen to love the overly blunt nature of Maron’s WTF Podcast. If you pick up this book without having listened to the podcast, you’re going to be fucking lost. Or…maybe…you’ll be intrigued enough by the snippets offered forth on a litany of subjects such as the first time, addiction, mortality, fame, and many other topics to try out the podcast. I hope you get hooked either way! However much I enjoyed what can only be called a collection of celebs on every topic imaginable, I wouldn’t be doing my job as the midget blogger if I didn’t send you to Maron’s first book, his marvelous and unvarnished warts and all life story, “Attempting Normal”, currently out in paperback. Check that out, check out the podcast, and yes, check out this collection. Be prepared for your think tank to be saturated with intellect, bluntness, profanity, some heartbreaking anecdotes, and a lot of FOOD FOR THOUGHT. I lost my best guy friend to leukemia a day after he was diagnosed in August, and that grief likes to rare its ugly head at strange times…like when reading Maron’s book and the chapter on mortality. Shit is REAL out there, and I am so glad that there are people like Marc Maron who are podcasting the reality of real life. The book was a great compendium for Maron fans, and you can do worse than pick up a copy! Out now in your local bookstore.
