And ready to destroy toxic masculinity. Karen and Georgia are the voice of a movement—badass and vulnerable as hell—and this is their manifesto. Stephanie Perkins, New York Times bestselling author of There's Someone Inside Your HousePraise for My Favorite Murder:
Hardstark and Kilgariff’s podcast takes on crime, death and other gory subjects, all filtered through the pair’s subversive wit as they riff on life’s craziness, often sharing details from their own mental health and substance abuse struggles.
