Today my guest is Chris Gethard.
He's the host of the podcast Beautiful / Anonymous, which tells beautiful stories from anonymous people in a most interesting way.
Each week Gethard opens the phone line to one anonymous callet — and he can’t hang up first, no matter what — and he doesn’t know where the conversation will go.
Anything can and does happen, and a live show is coming to Hamtramck this weekend as part of the Motor City Comedy Festival.

Also some brief news around town:
There's a massive strike at GM. UAW workers want a better contract that makes up some of the ground they gave in leaner times.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan wants city council, then voters, to approve a $250 million bond to fight blight ahead of schedule.
And 20,000 defective streetlights in the city have been replaced, according to the Public Lighting Authority.
