I cant get enough man! This will make you happy, sad, empathetic, proud. Worth every minute listening! :D
On the one hand I wish this podcast came out more frequently, (Because I canât get enough) however, I also donât want it to get burnt out or staleâ¦.keep up the great work!
i like listening to it.
Almost like being a fly on the wall of a therapy session, but with added humor and humanity.
Listening to this podcast, listening to these people talk about stories and situations I have never thought of- their struggles, their victories, their passions- has ultimately led me to believe that people are truly beautiful.
I had never heard of Chris Gethard before, but I'm an immediate fan after only hearing a couple episodes of this podcast. Chris has a gift of being able to go deep with people who didn't at first seem aware that they were going to go there. Anxiously awaiting each new episode!
Absolutely wonderful show. You really get to know people even if you don't know them.
This podcast is so amazing, Chris is funny, kind, and entertaining all around... Definitely a must listen on my list!
This is my new favorite podcast!!!
Really look forward to these rolling out. Chris Gethard is onto something for sure.
I have quickly fallen in love with this podcast. Chris has a way of connecting with the callers that is totally genuine. I am captivated by both Chris and the callers opening up their worlds to us. I highly, highly recommend this podcast.
It's so interesting to hear how people live there lives. It seems that everyone is so similar but so different and that makes it such a great listening experience.
Loved Ron Paul's Baby- keep 'em coming
I knew in the first 5 minutes that this was going to be the next big podcast. Absolutely fascinating and you really can't stop listening. This will not disappoint.
Loving this podcast! It's like listening in on a therapy session. So intriguing.
Needs to let the guests tell their story without the constant interruption and commenting from the host. Just heard the first one. Will try the last one to see if it gets better.
chris manages to pull the story out of each caller, which is pretty amazing to "watch". it's a fun podcast because there's the callers story (that's usually interesting enough), and then chis frames it in a sympathetic and urgent way...totally absorbing.
My new favorite podcast.
This podcast works because Gethard comes across as a decent and genuine human being. He's funny, he keeps the conversation going, and he tries to help when he can. Everyone should be listening to this.
The beauty in Beautiful Stories is that Chris has the know-how and conversational skills to engage in his co-hosts and get to their heart issues. He skillfully and entertainingly takes interest in his guests and they open up to him to create authentic and interesting stories. He shows what wonderful stories can be mined from anyone if we take the time to listen. It shows beautiful interactions from anyone looking for their hopes and dreams and the comedy in life. In our culture of sensationalism and tabloid celebrity fanfare, he shines a spotlight on many stories that we as all humans can relate to. Very intelligent!
Love this podcast! One of my new favs!
The only thing wrong with this podcast is that there aren't more episodes. I binged on all of the available ones when I discovered it, and now I'm having withdrawals. I feel this in my human parts, right where it counts. Quite lovely; well done sir.
Moving, inspiring, heartfelt, and real.
Which isn't right- I get. However, this podcast is exceptional. Listened to two already and couldn't stop. Not only providing a beautiful service to his callers by just LISTENING, but giving his audience an incredible hour of real storytelling.
Great podcast to listen to anywhere. It feels like you have the company of two people having a genuine conversation, which is especially nice when you are otherwise on your own (commuting, standing in line, driving, etc.)
Life is hard and beautiful and amazing. Truly listening and generously sharing are gifts.Love this!
I'm a newbie to podcasts and I'm trying out many different shows...this one is my absolute favorite. I love hearing the stories of complete strangers with a little comedy here and there thrown in by Chris. Great podcast!
That first episode hurt. It felt like that dude from Texas was just reading a transcript from my inner monologue. Always great to add a new stellar podcast to my rotation, keep them coming, Chris!
As a fan of podcasts I must say that this is one of the bests I have ever followed. With only three episodes I find it better than most podcasts out there. Really hope it starts posting two stories a week. I'll sell my child's kidney if the money helps for this to happen ( not joking)
great great great!
I just love the way you can make the caller open up so quick ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼
There are so many "suggested" or "top-rated" podcasts that I try to listen to, that just really aren't that good. This one really IS good. Chris Gethard, who I had never heard of before this (sorry!) does a great job. He is kind and funny, and I really like his voice. I will continue listening.
A return to a lot of the interactions that made the cable access version of The Chris Gerhard Show so great. Chris is an active and encouraging listener who brings a lot out of random anonymous callers who become de facto interview subjects in the hour long format.Episode 1 is sublime and seems to set up a pretty solid target for what the show is aiming for.Excited for more.
I have found these interviews to be interesting and touching. They are hard to stop the stories once you start one. Gethart is a great interviewer who helps people sees what is good in them. We could all use a phone call like this with such a great, empathetic guy!
That's all I've got.
I really do enjoy this podcast. Unlike a lot of other listeners (and callers) Iâd never heard of Chris Gethard. Heâs clearly a talented individual and this podcast mostly captures my attention for the duration. When Gethard asks questions, itâs exactly what I want to know at that point. Really clever concept and Iâll definitely keep listening.
If you are a fan of conversations that go to deep and unexpected places, this is the podcast for you.
So fantastic and interesting. Chris is a really great active listener. Since listening to this podcast, I've been working at being better at this.
Great idea for a podcast, horrible host. Chris constantly interrupts the caller, making it impossible to even get through a sentence without him making some stupid comment or asking an unnecessary question. He only wants to hear himself talk.
I love it
I hate to be the one that criticizes, but doesn't create... But here I am. The maddening thing about this podcast is that it had such a compelling concept. I was hoping for the cathartic energy of an hour in depth vocalized version of "post-secret". The dark tortured psyches exposed and released. Or at least the truly weird. Execution just fell flat. So far it's a mix of the general malaise that seems to grip a generation lost mixed with the smug hubris of entitlement. These people have nothing to offer; I won't be listening any more.
Chris Gethard brings a riveting combination of insight, compassion, and real listening skills to these episodes. A much needed champion for the common man/woman. Keep up the great work!!
So this podcast is aptly named because, in fact, it is beautiful. Chris Gethard is a master of asking the right questions to unlock the real reason people are calling him. Empathy can change the world. Thanks for putting a little more out there. It's also funny, y'all. Get on the get and listen.
Let me start by saying The idea for the show has promise. That having been said:I listened to first episode and tried to get into the story but my experience was interrupted repeatedly by the host, Gethard, commenting and asking questions every few words. Let the people calling in speak, or you'll ruin the show. Every step of the way, as the guest was trying to share and talk. You need to take much more of a backseat Gethard, this is supposed to be the persons' calling in time to shine, share, and give of themselves. You don't need to clarify, repeat, and exclaim your reactions every step of the way, it's not only distracting but ruins the rhythm and pace of what could really have been a much more telling and enthralling story. Let the listeners try to interpret the callers for themselves, were not dumb, and it's part of the fun.
After 4 episodes, hoping for improvement, I cannot rate this higher than one star. I also cannot rate it lower, or else I would. Subway convo is more entertaining. I thought reviews were supposed to be honest, and 5-stars this is not. 2-stars tops for the audio voyeurs (his words) among us. All I hear is mindless prattle. I wish I could recommend this as an amazing find, but the 5-star reviewers must have vested interest, that's all I can say.
I have never heard of CG until the other day on this American life, now I'm sort of obsessed! you find a little of yourself in each of these people, super fun, super inspiring!
You know how the second half of Ferris Bueller gets pretty honest and real about life and what's important? This is the podcast follow up to Ferris Bueller. The voice is even similar.
