1 phone call. 1 hour. No names. No holds barred. Thats the premise behind Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People, hosted by comedian Chris Gethard (the Chris Gethard Show, Broad City, This American Life, and one of Time Outs 10 best comedians of 2015). Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller, and he cant hang up first, no matter what. From shocking confessions and family secrets to philosophical discussions and shameless self-promotion, anything can and will happen! Theme song by Shellshag.

Before you start...

Like so many people I found this - and Chris’ other work - when I was going through a hard time in my life. Still working through it, but this show has helped in ways I’m sure I don’t fully understand. Thank you, Chris.

My one piece of advice - start with episode 1, and then work through them in order. The evolution of this podcast is just as beautiful as the stories. I’m in the mid-70s and it just keeps getting better and better.

An Archive for the Human Experience

I’ve been following this podcast for years now, and it’s just the thing we need. It’s such a wonderful reminder of our inherent humanity, and is such a solemn presence of human culture conveniently encapsulated in this expansive world.
