EP. 359 — My Dad Was An Axe Murderer

Imagine growing up with a secret so big, you had to change your name. A young man opens up about finding out that his father was an axe murderer. He describes what it was like meeting his dad for the first time in prison. He shares what happened when he realized that his college professor had picked up a hitchhiker that turned out to be his father. He and Geth also discuss America’s fascination with true crime and coming to terms with his trans identity.


Chris [00:00:00] Just wanted to give everybody a quick heads up. This week’s episode talks about homicide. So if that’s something that you need to brace yourself for, consider yourself warned. Hello to everybody who’s growing increasingly wary of true crime as a genre. It’s Beautiful/ Anonymous. One hour, one phone call, no names, no holds barred. Hi, everybody. Chris Gethard here. Welcome to another episode of Beautiful/ Anonymous. I’m flattered and honored to be your host. Couple of things to let you know about. One is a reminder, BeautifulCon-onymous.com.
