    Grandpa Murdered Grandma

    Grandpa Murdered Grandma

    An heirloom ring, a tiny island in the middle of a lake, a tragic murder, a malfunctioning gun, addiction, rehab, recovery, long-distance love, poetry. It’s the kind of story a true crime podcast could easily spend an entire season on. But we only get one hour with this week’s caller. And what a compelling hour it is. It’s a dark story, but our caller tells it with so much heart–and because it’s Beautiful/Anonymous, she and Geth find plenty to laugh about along the way.

    Life at 1.5x Speed

    A thoughtful and resilient caller who has lived a lot of life calls to talk with Gethard about family, work, love, and loss. But also about adventures abroad, DFMOs (Dance Floor MakeOuts, obviously), cleaning out the most disgusting refrigerator, riding motorcycles . . . and all of that before she even mentions the iguana. This one has a little bit of everything we all love about Beautiful/Anonymous.
