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.

Get through the first couple of episodes, where Chris isn't the best host (he keeps interrupting badly) but he gets a lot better as you go through a few stories. Some funny stories, some sad stories a good mix. Some very interesting people get on the phone with Chris. I've not caught up with them all but I'm getting there. Give it a try!
Do you remember those radio call in shows? I do. A random person would call in to talk about a specific topic, but it always felt too short because the guest maybe had five to ten minutes. But still, there was something so fascinating about the topic that you overlooked the application. This podcast is what all those call in shows could have been if the time constrictions of radio weren't a thing. And what you get is a great podcast for travelling (sarcastic ha for anyone who checks the date of this review) or for when you want to fall into the human experience.
