Kevin is amazing

This podcast is everything. Guided by the hilarious and all around cool guy Kevin you feel it all, the heart break, the triumph, the adrenaline, the real fear, lots of second hand embarrassment and serious unbridled (sometimes x rated) joy. Not for the faint of heart, but if you come in open heart and mind I guarantee you’ll be hooked.

And somehow....

Risk continues to change my heart and enhance my world in the most wondrous of ways.
Thank you Kevin!
