anoNYman™ is an immersive storytelling podcast that features anonymous New York human (anoNYman) stories submitted by our listeners. Our premise: hidden identities make for uninhibited stories.

The only restraint we impose on our anoNYmans is location, each story must be set in New York. In doing so, we’ll allow the city to become the thread that connects us to each other, and eventually, a character all on its own. At times, it’ll be an accommodating host, providing the perfect setting for a steamy romance. But be warned, no sooner as we lulled into a fabricated bliss are we abruptly reminded of the city’s inhospitable side, birthing circumstances so dreadful, we’ll wonder why millions of us still call it home.

Join us as we give this city a platform for all its untold stories.
