Stay Sexy & Don't Get Murdered by Karen Kilgariff & Georgia Hardstark

If you're a feminist true crime fan with a sense of humor, then do yourself a favor and give a listen to your new pals, Karen and Georgia.  These hosts of the popular My Favorite Murder podcast have written a book and narrate the audiobook version themselves.  While they dish about the sordid details of various murders on their podcast, their book is more autobiographical in nature.

Kilgariff and Hardstark open up about their battles with personal demons many women face, such as alcoholism and eating disorders, as well as the influences that may have caused them.  They also offer commentary on why so many crime victims are women and how cultural attitudes need to change so that we can all live safely.  They encourage women to reject societal pressure to put politeness and conformity above personal safety, while demanding authorities deal more seriously with violence against women.

Though the subject matter is rather heavy, the ladies inject their trademark humor into the narrative, making this both a thought-provoking and enjoyable listen. Check out our e-book or e-audiobook copies through Axis360!
