Beautiful stories but...

way too much commentary & audio clips in between which just detracts from everything.

Love this show!

I’ve seen Risk live once and it also has been the best companion on many walks, drives, vacations and sleepless nights. The stories are so insightful, eye-opening, uniting and representative of real people and real life. Thank you, Risk!
