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.

I simply adored this one. I was driving the long trek home at 9:30pm from Brisbane and was listening to this one in my car. I literally LOL'd in many places. Thanks for an easy, carefree, funny call. You sir, are my kind of human

I Love you guys! Caller... I know exactly how you feel in the mental, unappreciated self defeating rut. I'm so isolated socially and medicated to give me a reasonable shot at getting out of bed. Appreciate the opportunities you have by having a foundation of friends to get out with. I might be without, but YOU just made me so delighted. A much deserved brain break. Thank you😊 You owe it to me to pick up your damn stapler wave goodbye to the Bob's and go have a riot!
