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.

Love Tuesday's

I started listening to Podcast (didn't even know what it was or that I had it on my iPhone)after the passing of my sister, it's the only way I can relax to fall asleep! This is my favorite show of them all! I must say I wish that you would do more than just one a week:-(! Love that people can vent or just tell their goofy or serious life stories! Keep up the good work and think about doing more than one a week, I don't get my fix but once a week.... not fair Chris:-)! Maybe some callers could ask if you could follow up, with the anonymous caller(s).. I can't stop thinking about the guy (couple) that is adopting the little boy from across seas .. I can't be the only person who wonders what happened or how things are going for the callers now... MORE SHOWS CHRIS and SOME FOLLOW-UPS??

Every single emotion

Seriously this roller coaster of a podcast reminds me that I’m not alone. Every single person that has called in and told their story, whether it’s just a chat, a heavy moment in their heart or just for laughs...I carry a piece of them with me every single day. They have become a friendship even if for a short time and I’ve learned so much from each person who has called—I truly feel connected to not only these people but the BA community! Chris Gethard—thank you for making this possible ☺️
