This week in press releases - WTF box set
Regular readers of this space, and listeners of What's So Funny?, will know I'm a huge fan of WTF with Marc Maron. Haven't missed an episode. But if you're a johnny-come-lately, you won't have heard the first 100 episodes because they're not available. Until now. Read on. (And in related news, the full catalogue of almost 300 What's So Funny? episodes remains available -- and free! -- at comedycouch.com and on iTunes. We're not about the money.)
