Love this podcast so much that I have trouble waiting for the next episode. Nice job, Geth! Sometimes it's funny, sometimes a little melancholy, but always entertaining.

That woman laughing at nothing in the lane next to you? That's me and I'm listening to Beautiful/Anonymous. Great stories spring out of sometimes awkward conversations, and they sometimes make you shed a tear. Chris is great, episode duration is perfect, and it is a great PC to listen to when you need to stay focused on the road in the wee hours of the morning. Good, good stuff.

Best Podcast!

I have loved this podcast since its inception! I had a long commute for a while and Chris and his anonymous guests kept me company. I love learning about people who have walked a different parts than I have. Thank you, Chris, for this platform! I wait anxiously for Tuesdays!

The best dang podcast out there. I truly thought I would never "get" podcasts or connect with one... until I listened to beautiful/anonymous. Chris Gethard has a way of getting people to reveal things about themselves that they didn't even know what bottled up. after every episode I find a new appreciation for my life and for people's lives that I don't even know.

Truly adore this podcast. I have laughed out loud countless times, I think it's fantastic. It's explained a lot of things to me, specifically and maybe most importantly, what a zene is. Thanks Chris, you give us some meaningful and funny things to listen to and learn about.

I am a graduate student and have really late crazy hours sometimes. When I'm brainlessly pipetting and probably doing things most wouldn't like but we all can enjoy the amazing medicine at the end...anyway thank you for making graduate work a little more enjoyable with you in my ears :-)

Gethard is an adept interviewer. I don't love everyone who comes on the show, but I'm compelled to listen.

Hit or miss

Some episodes are amazing, some are boring. I guess Geth can only work with the material he's given but still, that's my feedback.

I liked this show until I realized that they hand pick the callers. Definitely seems like they're seeking certain people, which is fine if you're up front about it. To claim that it's random, however, is misleading and disappointing.

A wholesome pastime but also an important connection to other humans in a big world. Like briefly glancing into the windows of lit up houses as you drive by when it's dark out to try to figure out how other people live their lives, because sometimes you feel like an alien. I hope this podcast never ends; thanks Chris and all.

I look forward to hearing from Gethard every week, and the pithy conversations he facilitates---funny, thought provoking, and mind expanding. This is how I discovered all of Gethard's work, and now I'm a big fan. Can't wait to see you in Philly, man!!Thanks for all you do <3

Original and thought provoking

by SammyB305305 on May 29, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I stumbled upon this podcast and I was super into it for a while but I kind of lost some love for it. Some of the calls just don't have enough steam to last an hour and I find myself deleting some half way through. Plus I really love Chris, he is a super relatable and down to earth person, but he needs to work on his interview/ host skills. The interrupting, talking over callers, and personal anecdotes are charming at first, but end up taking away from the calls after a while. With that being said, I did have to order the "sorry Sally" shirt and it is awesome. I guess the conclusion is I have some complaints but I'm still a fan.

One of my favorites.

Stories of white privilege from mostly white callers

by Refrigerator Running on May 24, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

The title is a little harsh but it's the best way to sum up this podcast. I was really digging the plug for more diverse callers and found those calls to be the best. Bisexaul Brahmin, American Daughter, What Not to Ask a Transexual, and Black Punk Appalachian were some of my most favorite episodes. I'm a female person of color and as interesting as most callers are, it's hard for me to relate to people who: 1) have the time to just call whenever (and get through), 2) make tragedies out of common adversities. That being said, I'm actually a huge fan of the show because I enjoy the banter and rapport Geth builds with each caller. I do find myself laughing at the random events in others' lives as well as Chris' plugs for mental illness awareness.

I'm already on episode 18 & I absolutely love it! Chris has an amazing way of getting his callers to open up and most of the episodes start out as superficial conversation and then take a deep dive into honest, real life territory. Very relatable & my favorite podcast right now! Fantastic work, Chris!

I started listening on a different streaming service that has a podcast section but there was nowhere to rate and review. I stumbled upon this podcast at random and have loved every episode (and I binge listened to over a years worth) so far. Chris is an amazing host and the medium allows for more genuine conversation in an hour than many people experience in a lifetime.

This is definitely one of my favorite podcasts. It's a simple bit fun concept and Gethard is great at getting complete strangers to open up about their uniques lives.

I go back and forth between liking this and wishing (sometimes) that the callers were being legit interviewed because I want to know more. But then I go back over and over-more than most podcasts.

Story-telling podcasts are my favorite. Having only recently discovered this one, I've quickly become obsessed. C.G. is incredibly skilled at drawing people out, and fascinating stories from regular people emerge. He's a remarkable blend of brilliant, hilarious, and kind, and I just can't get enough. My only regret is that I'll eventually catch up to current, and will then only get to hear one/week. GREAT PODCAST!

In the age of Trump, we need uplifting and human and this is that. When I get too depressed from listening to NPR politics, I tune in to an episode of Beautiful Anonymous and it makes me feel better about the world. Don't we all need a little more human connection right now?

I stumbled across this podcast one day and decided to listen to a couple episodes while on a long walk. Life changing. Within a couple months I ended up listening to every episode and am hooked. Love Chris as a host, love the topics, love the Shellshag opening music, love the jokes, love his smart questions and (seemingly) easy conversations, love it all. More please!
