Jill Kargman Says Her New Radio Show Is the "Balsamic Reduction" of Herself
The #OddMomOut star is not holding back on her new Radio Andy show.
We love watching Jill Kargman's hilarious and unique take on everything from Jewish holidays and rowdy children to trendy New York restaurants on Odd Mom Out. But we could always use more Jill in our life, and luckily, our dreams have come true. The Odd Mom Out creator and star is hitting the airwaves with her very own show on SiriusXM's Radio Andy, aptly named the Jill Kargman Show, which launches this Friday, October 21.
Though Jill has already conquered the world of media as a TV star and an author, she told TODAY's Savannah Guthrie that she's always wanted to be on the radio. "I love radio. I've always loved radio, and I was such an early subscriber because I followed Howard Stern, the master. As soon as he exited terrestrial radio for SiriusXM, I signed up," she said on The TODAY Show Monday.
Now that she has her own radio show, Jill is not going to hold anything back. "Andy [Cohen] called me this summer and asked me to do it. And I was so flattered and honored," Jill shared. "I feel like I get to be the sort of balsamic reduction of myself, because [on] TV, I'm not allowed to say bad words, and so it's a little bit more diluted, and this really feels like my true essence."
Jill gave a sneak peek of what you can expect to hear when she hits the air on Friday. "We have live callers. I do sort of rants about my week," she said. "And we have all kinds of viewers. And the cool thing is that they're from all over, from rectangular red states and metropoli and just all kinds of people from all walks of life, and I love interacting with them."
In fact, Jill told Savannah that just because Odd Mom Out revolves around a mom navigating Upper East Side society, it doesn't mean that people from all over the country can't relate to it. "I feel like The Little House on the Prairie Nellie Oleson character that was in a small town, and I think it's the same paradigm. The metric might shift of what's important. Maybe in certain communities it's cheerleading or ice hockey or being competitive about schools," Jill explained. "But I think there's always a social hierarchy, there's always climbers, there's always some snobby person, and there's always that feeling that you're not really keeping up. And that's what our show is about, not parenting."
We'll see more of those relatable moments when Odd Mom Out returns for Season 3. Watch Jill react to the good news of the renewal, below.
