Calling all Murderinos! The cat is finally out of the bag! Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, hosts of one the most downloaded podcasts My Favorite Murder, just announced that four podcasts that will be joining them on Exactly Right Media, a brand new podcast network they’re launching in partnership with Stitcher.
These shows were hand picked by Kilgariff and Hardstark who said in a press release: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome this slate of smart, funny and investigative podcasts to the Exactly Right network…All of these shows have built up loyal audiences on their own, and we hope to give them a broader platform for sharing their stories with new listeners.”
So! Let’s take a closer look at the podcasts on Exactly Right Media’s new line up:
Do You Need a Ride
Do You Need a Ride is hosted by comedians Karen Kilgariff and Chris Fairbanks as the duo shuttle their guests to or from the airport, somewhat dangerously, in mobile sound studio (a car). New episodes launch December 3rd and will be released every first and third Monday.
My personal favorite from the bunch and probably the most adorable podcast on the internet is The Purrrcast. It’s a podcast for cat people by cat people! Hosts Sara Iyer and MFM producer Steven Ray Morris talk to cat people simply because they can’t talk to their cats. New episodes come out every Wednesday.
The Fall Line
The Fall Line is a serialized true-crime narrative hosted by the show’s writer Laurah Norton and licensed therapist Brooke Hargrov. The show focuses on the cold cases of marginalized communities in the Southeast and gives a platform to families and victims who have been passed over by mainstream media. The Fall Line joins Exactly Media just in time for its second season! Which will focus on seven infant abductions that occurred in Atlanta from 1978-1996. The season launches November 28th with episodes to be released every Wednesday.
“It’s an honor to join Karen and Georgia and the other hosts on the Exactly Right network,” said Norton in a press release. “Brooke and I are long-time fans of My Favorite Murder, and we love the idea of joining a network that truly celebrates story-centered podcasts.”
This Podcast Will Kill You
Possibly the scariest one of the line up is This Podcast Will Kill You. Okay, so it might not actually kill you, but it covers so many things that can. Each episode tackles a different disease, from its history, to its biology, and finally, how scared you need to be; which is very. Be very scared. Ecologists and epidemiologists Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke make infectious diseases acceptable fodder for dinner party conversation and provide the perfect cocktail recipe to match. This Podcast Will Kill You is a bi-weekly podcast and will be released on Tuesdays.
