Description

This program is read by the authors, with Paul Giamatti, and includes sections recorded in front of a live audience. 

The highly anticipated first book by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, the voices behind the number-one hit podcast My Favorite Murder!

Sharing never-before-heard stories ranging from their struggles with depression, eating disorders, and addiction, Karen and Georgia irreverently recount their biggest mistakes and deepest fears, reflecting on the formative life events that shaped them into two of the most followed voices in the nation. 

In Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered, Karen and Georgia focus on the importance of self-advocating and valuing personal safety over being "nice" or "helpful." They delve into their own pasts, true crime stories, and beyond to discuss meaningful cultural and societal issues with fierce empathy and unapologetic frankness. 

"My Favorite Murder started as a way for Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark to work through their fears. Now it’s a worldwide community.... Even its darkest moments are lightened by Karen and Georgia's effortlessly funny banter and genuine empathy." (RollingStone.com)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

These women have changed my life

Karen and Georgia have helped me out of some hard times and helped me gain a little bit of confidence along the way. Every week their podcast is something to look forward to. They’re easy to relate to and they just get it.
I am so thankful for this book and these women.

An amazing extension to Karen and Georgia

If you are a fan of the podcast, it’s not just because you are a murderino, but also because these women are our friends. The ones who cheer us on and say F&$K Yeah when we try, even when we fail. This just helps you get more intimate with the best friends we have in our ear.

Get it!

I loved this title. Great variety in content and especially hilarious. Paul Giamatti was a great addition too and I enjoyed the bits of stand up included.

You guys throw great punches in the face of issues that some are so unaware of. I'd say this book is more for those 3+ / 5 on the emotional intelligence scale.

Exactly what I wanted this book to be!

As a Murderino, this book is exactly what I wanted it to be! It is not the podcast and doesn't talk about murder too much, but it is a raw and vulnerable memoir by two women who want to help other women by sharing their experiences. I spent the first hour crying my eyes out, then laughed out loud, then just listened to the whole thing almost in one sitting.
Congratulations Karen and Georgia, you wrote an amazing comedy / self-help memoir! Everyone, men and women, should read it!

No murder--but so much to love

If you've never heard of My Favorite Murder and you are wondering how a book can be this popular when it's about the lives of two women who run a true-crime comedy podcast, well, yeah, there's a lot to unpack there. I'd just say that if you're even marginally interested in true crime, try the podcast and see if you like it. Then come back and get this book.

If you're already a fan of the MFM podcast--hey, Murderinos!--you already know you want this. It's everything you are expecting: Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark talk about the good and bad in their past and current lives, just like on the show, only it's more about them and less about murder.

But that's OK. You already know what makes the show great. It isn't the murder--it's these two women, who are pretty great because they're pretty normal. They have doubts, insecurities, problems, anxieties, just like the rest of us--the difference is that they're honest about it all and brave enough to talk about it, to each other, and to us. Thanks, ladies, for opening up the world for the rest of us weirdos, and for writing this book that gives us six and a half hours of extra listening and even a few minutes of Paul Giamatti. What's not to like? SSDGM!

The self help book I didn’t know was missing from my life

This book changed my life. I laughed. I cried. I learned. I have told everyone I know that they need to stop what they are doing and check it. This book changed my life.

I can’t even begin to say thank you enough

Honestly when I hear your voices, the golden girls theme song plays in my head and it’s like I’m welcoming back old friends I haven’t seen in a long time.
When people say you saved their lives or came to them in a time of need you may think it sounds cliché, but you legitimately saved my life. The day I found the podcast was the worst day of my life. Before someone gets the wrong idea, let me explain.
The day the podcast was introduced to me was the day my fiancé called me out of no where the day before our four year anniversary and told me he didn’t love me anymore. I felt hollow, numb, and the depression I had been fighting bubbled up in my veins and threatened to spew itself all over my already crumbling world. He called me right before work and I almost called out. Thank god I didn’t.
I worked in a retirement home at the time and my residents always made me feel really safe. This particular day, one of my newest residents had her daughter visiting her trying to get her acclimated to her new retirement home living. As I was serving them food and trying not to sob, I heard the resident’s daughter, Cathy, say something about the murder that always shocked her. I actually started listening, I was a criminology major at my local community college and I wanted to hear hers. My residents who all knew what I did (they called me their little detective) motioned me over.
Instead of serving some of them in a timely manner, I stood there in awe of this woman who described to me the two most bad ass women who loved true crime and broadcasted a kick ass podcast two times a week. I didn’t even know what a podcast was at the time. I still have the picture of the MFM podcast page so when I got home I could look y’all up and listen. I didn’t even make it to my lunch break before I was binging you guys and crying in the linen closet at work. You guys were like coming up for fresh air when you’re stuck under water disorientated from being hit by a large wave. You were my relief, you were my saviours.

As a single twenty two year old who lives on her own now, pursuing her bachelors in criminology and a minor in bio-chemistry at one of the most esteemed criminology universities in the country ( Go Noles!), I can honestly say a year ago I never saw myself here. I never thought I would make it to this point in my life where I was grateful he walked out, but here I am. I am so grateful he walked out and I am so grateful for you Karen and Georgia. Thank you for helping me survive and thrive and become who I always wanted to be... myself. I love you, and Steven and Vince and Marty and Elvis and Mimi and Dot and George and Frank.
Thank you for creating this world where we can be so free and loving towards our true passions and for being so open about mental health. Thank you for also teaching me to be nice to little me.
Always a murderino through and through,
Siera

ps. Cathy if you’re reading this thank you so much!

I just really enjoyed Karen crying

A lot of very personal and moving anecdotes.
The book reminds me of exactly why I fell in love with them in the first place.
Thank God I got the audible and not the book!

SSDGM

If you like the podcast MFM, you will love this book. If you don't know My Favorite Murder, you will likely love this book. Georgia and Karen, both a little rough around the edges. But that makes them kindred spirits. Both funny and charming. They shine a light on mental health issues with honesty and humor. Love these ladies... Also Paul Giamatti.. Epic

Love love loved

If you currently are or ever have struggled with anxiety, depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, self worth, a broken home, finding your place in this world, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU. It’s not about murder. Only an undertone of murder while navigating life. This was a great book and brought me to tears multiple times because these woman are so relatable due to their personal struggles.

Exactly what I hoped it would be

This audiobook is a perfect representation of what makes their podcast so great. It's personal, vulnerable, hilarious, tragic and heart-warming. Georgia and Karen do a wonderful job reading their own words - and the audio bonuses are amazing. I will not spoil them.

If you're a fan, you probably own this already. If you're new to their world of SSDGM then this is the ultimate "gateway drug". It's a fantastic memoir and worth your credit. Give it a whirl.

Could have listened for many more hours

I am a big fan of MFM and was present when one part of this book was recorded at a live show. The honesty and vulnerability put forth by Karen and Georgia was raw and lovely. I enjoyed their reading and am pre disposed to enjoy the content which speaks to my heart. They helped me and many like me find our tribe. Bravo

Stay Sexy and Don’t Put This Book Down

Congrats to Karen and Georgia for this culmination of what must have been incredibly hard work! I listened to the entire audiobook on my way back to the States from London, and it made my flight so much more bearable. I will say that the bits where Paul Giamatti read felt out of place (especially because I’m used to hearing only Georgia, Karen, or STEVEN when I listen to MFM), but I still loved the whole book. Georgia and Karen clearly understand the messages that have resonated with their listeners and know that we want to get to know them better, and this was a great opportunity to spend time on both of those things. 10/10, would recommend. (P.S., Georgia, you said you were worried we’d hate you guys after reading this book. I love you even more.)
