    A Real Andy Kaufman Situation w/ Kevin Anderson

    A Real Andy Kaufman Situation w/ Kevin Anderson

    It's a murderous day for a podcasting and your friendly neighborhood host and victim, Evan Kessler, finally figures out the best way to describe the podcast. It's "the best hypothetical murder podcast around." Glad we got that out of the way. Joining Evan this week is the one of many, Kevin Anderson (Bleak in Review podcast, the Avatar 2 comedy show, Knights of the Rhyme Table), making his maiden appearance after being referenced as a "friend of the show" more than once on previous episodes. The decade-long friends discuss the whole point of existence, whether or not there's more than one guy with a Cybertruck in the San Fernando Valley, and what you should expect if any mascot comes to your front door. With all that lighthearted conversation out of the way, our guest finally gets to lay out his plans to take our host down for the dirt nap. When it's all said and done, someone or something will end up decaying like a struggling franchise and it's more than likely our host. What can we say, it's a podcasting day to get murdered, this episode and every episode on "Won't You Be My Killer?"
    Stay tuned until the end of the show to find out how you can contribute a hypothetical murder plan to an upcoming episode of the show!

    For Whom They Bomb Atolls w/ Leah Mansfield

    For Whom They Bomb Atolls w/ Leah Mansfield

    It’s a murderous day for a podcasting and, this week, we welcome Leah Mansfield to commit hypothetical murder lucky number 13. A comic, writer, and army vet with an utterly unique life experience, our guest is none too shy in discussing her competitive nature in traffic, a particularly painful and insightful experience opening for Tig Notaro, and which military rank is "the fun military rank." When all is said and done, there'll be precious little left of your friendly neighborhood victim/host. It may not be as lengthy as Oppenheimer, but this episode certainly has its fair share of bombs. It's a podcasting day to get murdered, but don't worry, you're safe.

    A Person Can Only Be Pushed So Far w/ Joe Kaye

    A Person Can Only Be Pushed So Far w/ Joe Kaye

    It's a murderous day for a podcasting and wouldn't you know it, we've baked up a dozen episodes of the damn thing! This week we're joined by another dear friend in comedian, karaoke MC and reluctant Disney adult, Joe Kaye! Your friendly neighborhood victim and host, Evan Kessler, will have our guest flying into a justifiably homicidal rage eventually, but it'll simmer before it boils. A good thing too, as all that simmering gives the two friends time to converse, comparing hometown celebrities, revealing cartoon crushes and predicting the surprising thing that might drive Tom Hanks to violence. When all is said and done, someone's going to sink to the level of their Staten Island roots and carry out this podcast's weekly aim. Like we always say, it's a podcasting day for a murder!

    Cans, Plans, and Mystery Pills w/ Doug Dixon

    Cans, Plans, and Mystery Pills w/ Doug Dixon

    This week Evan welcomes dear friend, dope slinger and WYBMK associate producer, Doug Dixon, on this murderous day for a podcasting. Before your friendly neighborhood podcaster pays the ultimate price for his disputed history of party fouls, we'll learn about the healing power of synths, just how long Tom Hanks studied acting before he started churning out Oscar®-caliber performances, and even what it's like to have Dave Grohl constantly looking over your shoulder. Plus, music! We're not just gonna give you the lowdown on who could be headlining the port-a-potty stage at Coachella 2025, but our guest drops a hot synth-laden single, in addition to an updated version of the show's theme song. Stay tuned for an episode so entertaining, it'll make you want to venmo everyone involved some "Hot Tub Money." It's a podcasting day to get murdered and wouldn't you know it, you're in the right place at the right time, which is coincidentally a vital part of any murder plan coming to fruition.

    Reverse Aquarium w/ Katie Merriam

    Reverse Aquarium w/ Katie Merriam

    "Won't You Be My Killer" reaches its milestone 10th episode and, as always, it's a murderous day for a podcasting! This week's special guest, comedian and close friend Katie Merriam, joins your friendly neighborhood victim and host (Evan Kessler) to let him know she doesn't take kindly to people who threaten her family OR terrible drivers – but what sets her off the most are joke thieves!!! While Katie's got a case of resting revenge face, that won't prevent her and Evan from enthusiastically tackling topics such as curse words that have a good mouthfeel, dating profile tigers, and what bison are doing on "Catty I." When all is said and done, we'll end up where we always end up, with a host whose timeline on this mortal coil has been drastically cut short as the result of minor transgression that even the most sincere apology won't remedy, as long as homicide is an option. It's a podcasting day to get murdered, so strap on your scuba gear and take a deep dive into another episode of the world's most dangerous podcast.

    Two Cougars At The Same Time w/ Zach Mendez

    Two Cougars At The Same Time w/ Zach Mendez

    This week, your friendly neighborhood victim and host, Evan Kessler, welcomes his dear friend, fellow comedian, actor and spiritual lighthouse, Zach Mendez, to sharpen his hypothetical murder knives on the digital stage known as "Won't You Be My Killer?" Will our guest use them - or has he decided to sharpen his mind knives and instead concoct a devious, non-violent plan to lower our host's heart rate to zero? There's only one way to find out. Come along for the ride (or maybe it's a hike) destined to end up six feet underground, as Evan and Zach discuss their linguistic triggers, the validity of Astrology, and the healing power of cupped hands. It's time to tackle the big daddy of the West Coast and it's going to require the performance of a lifetime to do it. It's a murderous day for a podcasting AND a podcasting day to get murdered! What are the odds? That's like witnessing an eclipse and the Northern Lights within a month of each other!
