Seven 9s and 10s

On Halloween of 2011, after hearing rave reviews for a few years, I began listening to the WTF with Marc Maron podcast. I started with Episode 1 - though he had already released 225 episodes. I wondered how long it would take me to catch up (I had an unofficial goal of doing it in under a year) and if I’d actually enjoy it enough to do so.
Well - 303 days later - I’ve finally caught up with all 317 episodes. That averages to slightly more than one episode per day, but in reality it came in larger chunks. Sometimes I’d go a week without listening to any, but then I’d listen to 7 in a single day.
That’s 317 episodes (308 originals + 9 special episodes) clocking in at - are you ready for this? - 15 DAYS, 21 HOURS, 15 MINUTES AND 54 SECONDS.
HOLY CRAP.
In reality it’s closer to half of that time, because I listened to almost every episode at double-speed. But even still… let’s call it 8 days. In the past year I’ve spent eight full days with Marc Maron in my ears, and I’ve enjoyed just about every minute of it.
