“For the first time, I’ll be joined live on stage by the co-creator of ‘WTF,’ Brendan McDonald, for a live conversation about what it took to make ‘WTF,’ and we’ll be taking questions from the fans in attendance,” Marc Maron said, “It’ll be a great way to give podcast fans a behind-the-scenes look at the podcast in a way we’ve never done before. And I always love interacting with the fans, which is what makes an event like this special.”
