True crime addicts Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark run a hugely successful crime podcast, and for the first time they have published a book.
...you can’t “stay out of the forest” because the world is a forest. And it’s filled with predators
We barely get any time on this planet. Do not spend it pleasing other people. Fuck politeness.This book is more like a collection of essays - it covers difficult times in both their lives - from eating disorders to addiction to depression.
Why does everyone think whistling indicates relaxation? It’s literally one of the weirdest things you can do in public without breaking the law.I also loved the advice they gave about how to avoid getting murdered.
I think its good to just say what you're thinking out loud. Some guy comes up to you on the street and starts asking a bunch of personal questions, you can say 'Whoa, this is weird behavior, I don't know you. You seem like a predator.' If he gets mad and calls you a "bitch", it doesn't mean you're a bitch, it just means you were right.I do wish I had taken the time to get to know them before I picked up this book.

Politeness doesn’t require actual humanity. It’s just cultural ritual. Kindness means you actually care and have good intentions toward a person. It means you think about them as much as you think about yourself. Politeness is fancy curtains in your front window. Kindness is the home-cooked meal on your dinner table.
