Storytelling doesn’t get much better than this!

I’ve had to remove my jaw from the floor many times

Always Listening, Always Learning

Risk! is easily one of the best podcasts ever. I have been a listener since 2013, when my boyfriend first introduced me to podcasts. I had seen the host, Kevin, at a stand up comedy show a few months earlier, where he plugged the show, and I was blown away the instant I started listening. Beautiful, honest, funny, raw, REAL stories all presented by a wonderful, compassionate human being. Beautiful Anonymous fans would do well to catch up on this show and its extensive back catalogue.

Hit or miss

Some great stories, also some duds.

The host needs to stop rambling, 15+ mins an episode is too much time to be doing introductions. I usually end up skipping to the story.
