I came across RISK! Last year and I truly love it. I’ve spent hours listening to people’s stories laughing and crying with them. Life can be hard and hearing what others have gone through have truly touched my heart. Thanks for the laughs and tears Kevin.

I love you Kevin!

Absolutely in love with this podcast. It is 100% brilliant, and those who disagree must be prudes.

One of my favorite podcasts!

Risk! stories are always fascinating, often funny, sometimes moving, and frequently profound. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and this one stands out as one of the juiciest (Bawdy Storytelling and Savage Lovecast are the other two juicy ones that I click on the second they drop)!
I also love Kevin for his vulnerability, lack of pretension, and his act of service getting people’s stories heard. In a world where we are increasingly isolated and we no longer sit around fires telling stories with our tribes every night, this type of work keeps us connected and preserves our humanity. When I have to be alone in the car or at home, storytelling podcasts and Risk! in particular keep me feeling like part of the human family.
I like weirdness and queerness and this show provides a double dose most weeks! I feel like I’m with my folks. I love Kevin’s voice (and I find a lot of radio voices irritating). Kevin sounds cheerful and kind and silly and wacky. I’m excited to catch the show in my city and hopefully meet him!
