You put them up on street corners and community bulletin boards. You hang them from ornate balconies and make them look like the flag of a new country. Drag them behind planes and make them circle the cities of the world like you’re announcing a new global superpower. You turn the signs into clothing like those weird toilet paper ads.
The signs read “KAREN KILGARIFF AND GEORGIA HARDSTARK HAVE WRITTEN THE GREATEST DUAL MEMOIR / COLLECTION OF HUMOUROU ...more
As always, Karen and Georgia are authentic, hilarious, straight forward and passionate. This book reads very similarly to the way they speak in their podcast, but does a deeper dive on who they are as people and the events that made them the way they are.
I don’t cry much, but I found myself getting choked up as Karen describe ...more
It doesn't matter if you fail. Your trying is what sets the tone for your whole life story. Think of everything you do as being chapters in your future autobiographical self-help book about murder. Your “career” is just another word to help you categorize your journey through life. Why not start brave and bold and believing in yourself?
I'll begin by saying that I'm not a “Murderino”, but my daughter is and we've listened to a few episodes of the My Favorite Murder podcast together; I know who ...more
I've always been a true crime fan, but I kept it on the down low so as not to creep people out. Finding My Favorite Murder podcast was a revelation.
In their book, Karen and Georgia open up even more about their lives and their murderino ways. It's so them and so funny and familar that it feels like Karen and Georgia's first lunch together- where you grab food with a new friend and find out yo ...more

What I wanted out of this book was to feel the anxiety, the joy, the fear, the “ga fuck yaself” of the voices I love from Karen and Georgia. Got it. It is absolutely their voices and I feel them.
There are stories in the book that have not come out in the podcast so you do get to know them more deeply. And love them more fully. It was full o ...more

I've heard the spoilers and read the samples and all I can say is that I've had this book preordered since it became available and I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival in the mail.
These two clever podcast creators, friends, and partners in crime have survived addiction, family drama and more therapy than most people I know so they know of what they speak. The essays or chapters are irreverent, gutsy and completely unapologetic about giving it to the reader straight. I found myself relating to the chapter on always being polite no matter what th ...more
