Beautiful anonymous gives an incredible platform for any story to be shared. Each week I look forward to see what direction the caller takes things, how Chris guides the conversation, and what lessons are learned.
Chris Gethard is amazing at connecting with every caller and drawing out interesting information. He has a way of getting real with callers in a non- judgmental and non-threatening manner. Please keep 'em coming!
I randomly stumbled across this podcast about a month ago and have listened to every episode since. This is my favorite podcast! Beautiful concept, beautiful interactions between people, beautiful way to spend an hour!
Hands down the best podcast out there. High recommend to everyone.
I only recently found out about this podcast. I finished all 70+ episodes in eight days. Yeeeeet.
This is honestly thee best podcast I have ever heard. Have been trying to find a podcast made specifically for me and I have found it. Geth knows exactly what questions to ask to keep them going and to keep you going. Geth gets it.
I can't stop listening. The show is fascinating, hilarious, sad, intriguing, and so much more. I have so many to catch up on & I can't wait. A must listen if you are tired of the same ol', same ol'.
This show is an interesting hour of insight into the life of average people in todays world. Never heard of Chris before I found the show but, I think he's an amazing host. One of my favorite podcasts ever! Update: Chris KILLS, still my all time favorite!
The first and only one ive listened to was #72. Aussie best friend, and wow what a roller coaster the caller had such a crazy story, inspiring/sad. Based on just that one episode im giving it 4 stars. hopefully the others are as good
This is just fun. I love to hear the wacky stories and Chris is such a good conversationalist and he keeps it so real. Love it, Chris!
OH by the way.... listened to the one about the guy who tried to stop his friend from killing himself... had a really deep good ugly cry. My dad tried and failed and then died of pancreatic cancer a few months later... still have more crying to do about that. But, that helped a lot...Ooof.
The way Chris can take someone's crazy deep, intense, unique, dark and twisty life and bring light to it, with an encouraging view. Calls em' out when needed but with out judgement. Good stuff!! His wheezy laugh is my fav!ð #contagious
Beautiful Stories by Anonymous People or Anonymous Stories told by Beautiful People? I can't get enough of this podcast! Chris Gethard is a talented, dedicated, and genuinely funny guy. This podcast has the perfect balance of deep conversations and light hearted humor. A big thanks to Chris and all of the Callers!
Best way to get through a full marathon, a long solo car ride, or just laugh on your daily commute!
A podcast that reminds us there are other people in the world besides ourselves and a host that is willing to make mistakes and fumble in an effort to get the most out of a conversation.
I have been listening to Beautiful Anonymous for over a year now (and am just getting around to a review...). I look forward to every Tuesday to listen to the next episode! Chris has created a space where people feel comfortable sharing, and uses his comedic talent and experience as an entertainer to shape the conversation into something entertaining to listen in on. He gets he best out of his callers, asking a lot of important questions and has important conversations that others benefit from hearing; but he also goes with the flow and rolls with any number of unexpected oddball turns. I even went to a live taping and felt like one of the cool insiders :) It has been fun to see the show evolve over time. I will keep recommending to everyone who will listen!
Good and interesting! And amazing Facebook community!
In a world where we are subject to FB highlight reels and only seeing the pretty, polished version of our friends, this is a breath of fresh air. The anonymity allows people to disarm and speak honestly. You get to walk a mile in another person's shoes for one hour. Geth does a great job engaging the callers. It is totally worth a listen! Start with Ron Paul's Baby.
It's such a simple idea, but Geth executes it so beautifully through his sense of humor and deep sense of empathy. I've never skipped an episode because he always makes it worthwhile, even with subjects that are touchy or upsetting.
This podcast will give you the feels. It will make you laugh, cry, and feel every emotion in between. What a great concept and a wonderful look into the lives of real people dealing with real issues.
This podcast.... It gets me every week!!! So real, down to earth, interesting, funny, emotional.... So many different things wrapped into one hour!!! One phone call!! No names!! No holds barred!!!!! As it progresses they get better and better.... I recommend this for anyone with a soul!!â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
LOVE this podcast. It makes me feel like I'm part of the conversation. I love the unexpected conversations from real people. Great job, Chris!!
I love turning on this podcast and knowing I could be smiling one minute and full of emotion and compassion for someone's life circumstances the next. I also appreciate your openness about your mental health and sharing your story with the world. Thanks for working on breaking the stigma.
Thought I lost the podcast bc I forgot to subscribe when I first listened bc it was so good and I got into it went searching for it on my break thank god I found it. Go figure I was subscribed the whole time... still figuring out how to work this podcast appðððð
Beautiful, raw, genuine, honest and often unintentionally hilarious, Chris Gethard demonstrates a rare type of empathy that creates a safe space for callers to share their deepest secrets. Truly fantastic. Gethard is so, so kind, and a true genius. 5 stars!
I don't think I'm anywhere near the same side of the political spectrum as Chris but I LOVE this podcast! One entertained every week. Keep em coming!!!!!
I wondered who was rating this show 5 stars until another reviewer pointed out that they were all written in a 2-day period. It looks like once per month, the host reminds his friends & relatives on FB and they help him out. Most 5-star reviews were written March 15-16; April 15-16..I don't expect his audience to widen at all. In fact, I would bet the 5-star reviewers don't even listen!
Love it! Look forward to Tuesday's!!
Great for those who like to people watch
This podcast gives me all the feels! Seriously addicted! Every week is better and better!
Enjoy the podcast, but the 50 wows in each episode drives me nuts.
Chis Gethard, Earwolf and the callers make this podcast great. I have never listened to podcasts before and I've been hooked on Beautiful Anonymous since call 1.
This is one of my favorite podcasts. The depth of empathy and interest Chris shows for each of the callers astounds me every episode. The calls run the gamut from heartbreaking to hilarious to sweet, but Chris is always able to pull the best story out of everyone. Have only listened to about ten episodes so far, but I look forward to many more hours with Chris's cavalcade of callers!
The concept of this podcast is great but it takes a great host to make it work and Chris does. Chris listens and asks questions and gets to the core of the caller. You never know where the conversation will take you. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes your heart cries, but as a listener you always connect.
Always listen to this while I get work done. Always calms me.
I've heard the most amazing stories through this podcast. Some are truly random and will make you giggle, others are tragic and will make you question the world, and some are incredibly inspiring. It's a truly beautiful way to connect with other people without ever knowing their names. Thanks to Chris and his team for bringing these stories to us!
This is the first podcast I started listening to that isn't a true crime podcast, but I quickly fell in love. I'm super nosey and hearing other people's stories is so inspiring
If you're checking what people are saying on whether or not this is worth subscribing to, YES. Do it. âï¸âï¸âï¸âï¸âï¸Starting to write reviews for the podcasts I depend on, not great at this so beer with me.I have always appreciated Chris Gethard's approach to comedy especially in the way it relates to mental illness. By having these honest conversations, he finds a way to navigate through the immense pain and stigma, getting to the heart of difficult issues. All which provides a beautiful relief and some of the best laughs I've ever had.P.S. The Subject Line - saw him and some other great folks at Clusterfest. Actually got to freak out and thank him for all of his incredible work. Hope y'all get to hear the FOLLOW THE RATS story at some point in your life.
I want to love this podcast so much but I find Chris to be extremely obnoxious and pushy. He interrupts people at the wrong time and is incredibly annoying. I wish he would just tone it down a bit, and just let people talk.
. . . . Thanks for what you do Chris. I'm listening to the Singer Who doesn't Sing and really enjoying it!
I love listening to this show, even the boring ones! When I discovered this podcast I couldn't put it down.
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.
