Marc Maron’s WTF Relaunches With Spiffy New Design

Comedian and podcaster extraordinaire Marc Maron just relaunched his website WTF with a cool new design. The site has a new blog feature to go along with the old podcast list. Maron posted a super-nebbishy video explaining the relaunch on his website. You can almost see the specter of his father hovering over him yelling, “Can’t you do anything right!?” Can’t embed, so check it out here.

Maron, incidentally, was also just quoted in this LA Times piece on Conan warm-up man Jimmy Pardo. Worth the read.
