Exactly Right is also home to the second season of This Podcast Will Kill You, a deep dive into various deadly diseases hosted by ecologists and epidemiologists Erin Welsh and Erin Allmann Updyke. Released on Tuesdays, the first episode of this season (available now) sinks its teeth into one of the most terrifying and strange diseases known to man and man’s best friend: rabies.

On the decidedly less grim end of the network’s roster is Kilgariff’s other podcast, Do You Need A Ride?, which has been pumping out weekly episodes since April 2014. The series returns with its 113th episode on December 3rd, with new episodes released the first and third Monday of every month. Recorded inside a 2008 Honda Accord, Kilgariff is joined by her friend and fellow comedian Chris Fairbanks as they interview guests — both famous (Rob Delaney) and not-so-famous (Kilgariff’s 17-year-old niece) — while shuttling them to or from the Los Angeles airport.
Lastly, Exactly Right is now home to the The Purrcast, a podcast for cat people hosted by Sara Iyer and Steven Ray Morris (MFM’s producer). Since September 2015, Iyer and Morris have been interviewing their fellow feline enthusiasts — because they “can’t talk to their cats” — about topics like new kittens, weird cat behaviors and unfair stereotypes about cat ladies. The show’s 171st episode is out today, with new episodes released every Wednesday.
Kilgariff and Hardstark will continue to release two episodes a week of My Favorite Murder under the Exactly Right banner, but that’s not all they have planned for 2019 — the brand will expand outside the audio realm when Kilgariff and Hardstark release their first book next summer. Described as a memoir, Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered will put a personal focus on a theme that’s become key to MFM’s popularity with women: the importance of self-advocating and valuing personal safety. The book hits shelves in May 28th, 2019.
