The podcast has 19 million monthly downloads.
Praise for the show notes how it normalizes an interest in true crime among listeners who previously considered themselves morbid or odd, discussing the sense of isolation and compartmentalization that often arises in those with outlying but healthy interests. Likewise noted is the predominance of female listeners, which is consistent with data showing true crime fans are predominantly female.
Kilgariff is best known for her work on Mr. Show and Ellen. Her stand up routine includes singing and playing guitar to original comedic songs. She is also known for her podcast Do You Need a Ride (DYNAR) with Chris Fairbanks. Hardstark co-hosted the shows Drinks With Alie and Georgia and Slumber Party with Alie and Georgia.
The show was broadcast on the Feral Audio network until September 2017, when it moved to Midroll Media. On November 28, 2018, Kilgariff and Hardstark introduced their new podcast network Exactly Right. In partnership with Stitcher, the Exactly Right podcast network broadcasts My Favorite Murder as well as Do You Need a Ride, The Purrrcast, The Fall Line, and This Podcast Will Kill You.
