I love a good podcast. I even made a list of my favourites here. And some people told me they found that list useful. So here’s a new recommendation. Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People. The concept is this:
1 phone call. 1 hour. No names. No holds barred. That’s 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 Out’s “10 best comedians of 2015”). Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller, and he can’t hang up first, no matter what. From shocking confessions and family secrets to philosophical discussions and shameless self-promotion, anything can and will happen!
As an added bonus, Chris Gethard sounds an awful lot like Ferris Bueller, which is no bad thing at all.
Start with the first episode, which you can hear here.
