Comedy television maven Karen Kilgariff makes up for bailing on going to a Gang of Four concert with Josh by pouring her heart out over a thorough analysis of the band’s 1979 release Entertainment!

Work hard on something you love for long enough and two things are bound to happen: you master it, and you stop caring about anything not directly related to how much you love that thing. If nothing else, that may be the most important lesson Karen Kilgariff has to offer. Starting out as a stand up in the early 1990's, she went on to become the head writer of The Rosie ShowThe Ellen Degeneres Show, and The Pete Holmes Show. After battling addiction, anxiety, and insecurity, Karen has reached a point in her career where she is able to look beyond the stress and struggles of trying to make it, leaving her with zero fucks left to give and one of the most successful podcasts in existence, My Favorite Murder. That mindset makes Karen the best possible person to unpack the uncompromising political statements and savage criticisms of modern romance that make up Gang of Four’s influential 1979 release Entertainment!

The 500 is a production of Native Creative Podcasts.
