EP. 325 — Foster Parents Who Love D&D (Live from Seattle)

A married couple who recently became foster parents talk about what motivated them to foster and how it’s dramatically changed their lives.

They open up about how everyday is “emotional limbo” because they don’t know if the kids will return to their birth parents. They also share their love of D&D, revealing character names such as Trina Tinkleberry the gnome.


Chris [00:00:04] Hello, Seattle. It’s Beautiful/ Anonymous. One hour. One phone call. No names. No holds barred. Hello. Welcome to Beautiful/Anonymous. My name’s Chris Gethard. It’s an honor and a privilege to bring you another phone call that represents human conversation in raw, largely unedited form, as we tell human stories one by one each week here on the show. And before we even get into what this episode is about, just want to go ahead and say that this is a baffling and difficult week in America. The Supreme Court is taking away people’s rights. I don’t like it, and I want to send love to all the listeners who are affected by this, especially our women who listen to the show. You hear me pause there because I’m getting a mixture of angry and sad. A mixture of angry and sad right now. If you know the history of our show, a lot of people have been listening since the beginning. You know, we were featured on This American Life after episode one
