  • 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. more

  • Risk makes me a good human

    Risk! Is such a gem. It is my go-to for when I want a podcast that is ALWAYS engaging. It seriously has never let me down. I usually try to extend whatever activity I’m doing so I don’t have to pause the episode 😂 so many different amazing stories from so many different people. Makes me feel like a better human.
