Bonus: Karen Kilgariff and the Shark

Fellow comedian Karen Kilgariff (My Favorite Murder) and Chris Garcia are members of the same sad club: they both lost their parents to Alzheimer’s. Karen tells Chris about caring for her mom, her too-real stand-up set, and how Alzheimer's is like the movie Jaws.   Our theme song is "Please Won't Please" from This is How You Smile by Helado Negro.
