To celebrate the milestone of 1000 episodes, Marc and WTF producer Brendan McDonald reflect on how they got here, why they created the show in the first place, and what the future holds for them and WTF. They answer listener questions and divulge some never-before-heard revelations, such as the time the show almost ended and how the White House reacted to President Obama's interview in the garage. Most importantly, Marc and Brendan talk about how their working relationship evolved into a deep friendship with a profound understanding of each other.

It's not entirely accurate to say this episode has never been heard by anyone before.

It's the first time Marc and Brendan ever did anything like this together in front of a live audience. This episode is sponsored by Squatty Potty.
