EP. 124 — Goose, Not Maverick

[00:01:33] CHRIS: Hello to everybody figuring out how to get a horse to San Diego. It’s Beautiful Anonymous one hour. One phone call. No names, no holds barred. 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… [00:01:57] CHRIS: Hello, everybody. Chris Gethard here. Welcome to another episode of Beautiful Anonymous. The show where I get to talk one on one with human beings somewhere on planet Earth and we hear about their lives and stories and we all collectively come together to actually listen. One person shares. Everybody else listens. It’s like preschool in a way. Man do I feel good doing it. Empathy. Empathy is dying. Empathy. I feel so lucky that I get to do this podcast where everybody who listens to it gets to say ’empathy still matters, we still want it in our lives!’ Thank God, thank God for your listeners. I mean that, I mean that so much. Thank you to
