 6 people rated this podcast
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.

UkOrigin reviewed this podcast on Aug 17th, 2017
"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!"
