Biography

Gethard was born in West Orange, New Jersey, to Martha and Jeremy Gethard. Gethard is also the author of Weird NY, a book detailing the ghost stories and urban legends of New York, and A Bad Idea I'm About to Do, a collection of stories from Gethard's life, which has been highlighted on This American Life.
