Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person I know who listens to podcasts. I only subscribe to a select few but the are huge part in my daily routine: at the gym, in the car, walking to class…I’m almost always listening to something.
If I happen to have my ear buds in and am laughing a little to hard to myself you can probably assume I am listening to Keith and the Girl (KATG). Keith and the Girl is a popular comedy podcast hosted by 30-somethings Keith Malley and Chemda Khalili fives days a week. Their tagline on iTunes? “Keith and his ex-girlfriend talk shit.”
If you are easily offended, this show is DEFINITELY not for you.
This completely uncensored internet radio show (complete with live video) covers everything from the New York comedy and art scene, sex, drugs, current events, interesting news stories, happenings in the hosts’ romantic and professional lives, and the Keith and the Girl community. Many shows also feature guest comedians or friends of the show.
My favorite aspect of this show is the involvement and devotion of Keith and Chemda to their fans. Every week they read listeners’ letters, interact with live listeners during the show, and have produced live show events around the country. They have even done shows in Canada, England, and Israel. Every year they host a slew of events during the week of April 15th when Keith does his annual stand up show in NYC. Keith and Chemda have an incredibly and talented fanbase. Over 90 people have gotten KATG themed tattoos in honor and love of the show. One listener has even animated a couple hilarious clips from past episodes. They are a great introduction to what has become a staple in my daily grind.
Have a laugh!
