Kill Me Now with Judy Gold

Kill Me Now with Judy Gold

Kill Me Now is a weekly podcast hosted by award winning comedian and writer, Judy Gold. Since Judy always seems to be pissed-off about something, she thought why not interview celebrities, family, friends and neighbors about what makes them angry - from the extraordinary to the mundane. Whether it's your cheap friend who always gets up from the table when the check comes, to injustices such as inequality & equal pay, Judy and her guests vent with wit, humor and passion while you laugh your ass off.
