We saw My Favorite Murder LIVE!!!

Do you guys listen to the podcast My Favorite Murder? It seems like everywhere I turn I meet new murderinos!

Well, a couple weeks ago (St. Patrick’s Day, to be exact!), I was in Indianapolis visiting my BFF Katie and we attended the MFM live show. It was a really cool experience. I would have never guessed a decade or so ago that a comedy podcast about murder would be selling out venues typically reserved for big-time bands. Yet, here we are! What a time to be alive, amirite?!

Since Katie and I have recently dipped our toes into the world of podcasting, it was also super inspiring to see 2 ladies who are straight up KILLING IT in this medium. They were, of course, hilarious and the crowd was lapping up every minute of it.

If you’re not already subscribed, you can listen to the episode from that night HERE. We had a blast, the hometown murder at the end was perfection, and Karen donned a green cape in honor of the holiday (see above! lol).

10/10 , would definitely recommend attending live podcast experiences!!!

Do you listen to My Favorite Murder? Have you ever been to one of their live shows? What podcasts are you loving these days? xoxo

P.S. Speaking of podcasts, I binged this one over the weekend and it is SO GOOD!

P.S. If I had all the time in the world, I would do crafts every day! Here’s where I pin all the projects my DIY-loving soul wants to do. I especially love DIY that is budget-friendly, upcycling-minded, or results in something that makes life a little simpler or the world a little bit more beautiful. You too?

What’s everyone up to this week? My sister and her friend came for a visit over the weekend, and we had a great time exploring the huge park in my neighborhood and eating the yummiest Cuban food. On Sunday we went to The Deering Estate where Katie participated in a table reading of a brand new script written by an up and coming playwright. It was so good! Wishing you all a beautiful spring day, and now on to the links…
