A big congratulations to Marc Maron, whose extremely crucial podcast, "WTF" — which features revealing interviews with comedy luminaries and, often, Maron trying very hard not to be resentful of the success of the aforementioned comedy luminaries — is going to public radio. The run of the show thus far has been edited down to ten one-hour episodes and has been picked up by a bunch of local stations throughout the country. And, now, a Maron-related anecdote from New York's recent Louis C.K. profile: "I ask him about whether he and Maron are back in touch after years of estrangement, and he says they are, now and then. 'I tell him I’m happy to sit down anytime for a real conversation, but he just wants me to do the podcast again. It’s a little weird.'" [MaximumFun via Splitsider]
