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.
I recently started listening to podcasts and this series one of my favorite podcasts.
This podcast makes me smile, love it.
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.
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.
Wowzers! What a neat concept! Love how you keep the convo going and encourage vulnerability in a fun kind of way. I hope he did the comedy show!!! Definitely listening to more!!!!!
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.
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.
Always! Best part of my day :)
Chris is an excellent listener and interviewer. Subscribe today.
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.
Awesome podcast to listen to whenever. BA community is worth being a part of.
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
Love the podcast.
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.
Thanks, Chris. I love this podcast.
BSfAP is one of the best podcasts I subscribe to. Chris Gethard is masterful.
Helps me not hate my job. Thanks chris
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.
This podcast is a fascinating glimpse into what makes us human and all the ways we are alike and all the ways we are different. I enjoy this so much.
I like this podcast just as much as Chris hates ostriches
Very good, very human
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 have never written a podcast review before. But this is the MOST consistent podcast I have ever listened to. Didn't know Chris till this was on TAL but I'm so glad I found this. My life loves Tuesdays.
Chris: your show makes my day. Love the stories from cultures I would have never had the chance to come in contact with. Thank you.
I look forward to listening to this every day on my commute and during the work day. I find myself smiling randomly while I listen and people give me weird looks. I've learned so many random things just from listening to these people's stories. Highly recommend!
Love this podcast!! Thanks for all you do(:
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.
Heard about Chris the first time when I watched the HBO special Career Suicide, became obsessed! This podcast is awesome on so many levels. Very interesting different topics with a non judgmental point if veiw.
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!
Chris Gethard is da boi 4 my ears
This is my go-to, canât wait until the new one comes out, always a new ride, most FAVORITE podcast - You never know what youâre going to getâ¦each one is a different journey. Love you Geth, er, uh, Chris ;) Keep up the awesome work!
Chris has a really stellar way of engaging his interview subjects. I very sincerely appreciate listening to this podcast.
Beautiful Stories gives me an hour unlike any in podcasting. Such a simple premise, but Gethard guides it to fulfillment each week with his trademark sincerity.
Somehow Chris helps you to love every type of person. It's the best podcast for car rides!
No bells and whistle's. Just plain honesty.
I listen to this show every week, I have encouraged others to as well. Chris is funny and brings out the most interesting parts of people's lives. Most of the guests are people I would love to be friendly with, down to earth people just telling their story. Hoping to one day get on myself! Absolutely love this community. Thanks Chris, your amazing :)
Love this show
would love to call into the show if i was interesting love u chris
Chris Gethard is a great host and I love the concept of this podcast. He is empathetic and I appreciate learning about all types of people.
Okay okay. I never review anything because I normally don't care. But, when I see this amazingly awesome podcast at #115, I had to act. This podcast gets not only me, but many others, through their day when it becomes available. This needs to be a top 10 podcast. It is a top 10 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'm an avid podcast listener, and about a year ago, this podcast quickly became my go-to podcast for work. I still listen every Tuesday when new episodes go up!
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!
