Podcast Thursday – ‘Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People’

Some people do ‘throw back Thursday’ but we’ve decided to do ‘Podcast Thursday’ where each week our producers will try to recommend another fantastic pod to check out – especially as you’ve all been so patiently waiting for season 4 of Ghost Stories to launch (it’s coming October 2017).

This week we recommend you listen to ‘Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People’ – a show hosted by Comedian Chris Gethard and published by Earwolf. The show is described as:

“Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller, and he can’t hang up first, no matter what. From shocking confessions and family secrets to philosophical discussions and shameless self-promotion, anything can and will happen!”

We’ve included a link above to the pod and I’ve embedded one of my favourite early episodes below for you to listen to.

Have a listen, we are sure you’ll enjoy it!

If you have a spooky story you want to share or even want to tell us about a podcast we should check out, message the production team using our contact page.
