This Feels Terrible
McGathy began performing at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre in 2007. Her solo show about relationships, This Feels Terrible, premiered at UCB in 2010. It later became a podcast, with McGathy interviewing comedians and friends about their relationships. Notable guests included comedians Marc Maron, Dan Harmon, Wayne Federman, and director Rob Schrab.
McGathy became a frequent guest and "comptroller" on the Harmontown podcast. McGathy was a regular character on the show's Dungeons & Dragons segment and subsequently a cast member in the spin-off animated series from Seeso, HarmonQuest.
Beginning in March 2015, McGathy co-hosts the podcast Human Conversation with comedian Wayne Federman, in which the two discuss various, oft-delightful and meandering topics, without the aid of technology.
Dan Harmon and McGathy were married in October 2014 and announced that they were divorcing in November 2015. McGathy and Harmon's relationship was one focus of the Harmontown documentary, which detailed the podcast's tour across America.
