EP. 202 — An Octopus Living in Baltimore

A Baltimorean waxes nostalgic about his hometown and talks about his near fatal encounter with a freight elevator. Things take an interesting turn when the conversation turns to toxic masculinity.


[00:00:05] CHRIS: Hello to all my JD & The Straight Shot Fans! It’s Beautiful Anonymous. One hour. One phone call. No names. No holds barred.   [00:00:15] THEME MUSIC: I’d rather go one on one. I think it’ll be more fun and I’ll get to know you and you’ll get to know me.   [00:00:28] CHRIS: What an exciting week for me as the host of this show. You guys have been so nice. I’m seeing so much enthusiasm for the Beautiful Anonymous convention happening May 14th through 17th in Brooklyn, New York. Saw somebody tweeted they’re flying in from Australia for it. That blows my mind. I hope the shows are good. Justify that trip. I think we’re going to have a blast. Man, I can feel the enthusiasm. I see a lot of people saying “I’d love to come, but this show‒ I listen to this show and it’s kind of my secret and I’d have to come alone.” I say, let’s get hundreds of people who come alone in the same room
