Kaaattttiiiiieeeeeeeee ,

Love it

Just found this today and I’ve listened to 5 episodes already. Wonderful story telling and a well put together show

Aabbccdd 1234 ,

Great storytelling and production

Well executed podcast that’s interesting and extremely well produced. Seriously, the audio quality and effects mixed with the intriguing, well-told stories are the gold standard. This is a must listen. One issue after listening for a bit: this show is like a sandwich that’s 70% bread… way too much filler

Four-eyed jessi ,

The most compelling podcast I’ve ever followed.

I stumbled upon “Risk” one day, I was fed up with true crime and listening to celebrities drone on and on about themselves. I needed something with substance, weight; but also lighthearted and funny. Risk has all of those qualities and I absolutely adore this show. Every single episode is captivating on one level or another and I think the host, Kevin Allison, is simply the best part.
The end.
