Long time listener

I’m a long haul trucker and have driven thousands of miles to these stories. I love Kevin, yes he is a weirdo but to me he embodies the quirky, provocative, and offbeat energy of the show. This podcast isn’t for the mainstream, that’s what is great about it. Two stories have been so gross I had to pull over because I was fainting behind the wheel. Other stories triggered long dead emotions about my own sexual assaults. A handful of stories have left me not wanting to listen anymore but I always come back. Thank you RISK! for doing what you do.

Kevin talks to much

Still a good podcast but I have to skip through all the talking I’m not here to hear.

“Never thought I’d dare to share”

The whole idea that you have to pitch YOUR personal story to a “casting department” just for them to tell you that it does or does not “fit into their show” should tell you enough. A person sits and trusts someone with their story, in complete vulnerability just for some underpaid hipster behind their Mac Book to tell you if it’s good enough or not. A need to cast people and presume judgement over THEIR story? That’s not the point of story telling. This podcast is about popularity, not about genuinely caring for the amazing and unique stories humans possess. Why even have casting? Low grade. In it for the money, hence their book that they don’t waste a second pushing throughout the episodes. Furthermore, if you do want to listen to stories about people eating fecal matter for sexual pleasures, or the fifty year old host getting his heart broken by an eighteen year old boy then go ahead. And for all of those who do have a story, which is all of us, whether it be big or small. Go to an open mic. Go somewhere. There shouldn’t be an ounce of judgement in this field. The story itself and the feeling that transpires when that story is finally told is what matters, not the content, or if it’s deemed “good enough”.
