A very human show

I love this podcast. It makes me feel like humans are lot more alike (and a lot crazier!) than we all realize. It’s great to hear so many different perspectives.

Best show ever, without trigger warnings!

I was listening to one of my absolute favorite podcasts this morning, RISK!! Anyways- Kevin the host, said people have been complaining and saying the show should put trigger warnings on the episodes before the more explicit episodes- I say NO! If you need things to be censored then this is not the show for you!!! Trigger warning trigger me and make me angry! This is an awesome show because it is SO REAL! Please don’t ruin another thing with your complaining and narcissism! Let us listen in peace. Best show ever, just the way it is!!!!

All emotions

I drive all day for work and listen to podcasts for 12 hours a day. No other podcast has caused me to run the gambit of emotions like RISK. I’ll be laughing hysterically and then have to pull over because I’m balling at another story. Amazing job Kevin!!!!
