  1. Excellent show this week! I was at the Pittsburgh show, up in the front row! Stacy Keene’s story was sobering and terrifying!

  2. Melissa Murphy’s story sounds like a classic case of sleep paralysis. Look it up if you’ve never experienced it. It’s a frightening experience.

  3. Alison- this is Melissa Murphy:) I have also experienced sleep paralysis in my teens and in adulthood, and it is indeed a terrifying experience. It is something I know well, unfortunately.
    This however was very different 🙂

  4. Idk..I kind of like them. Usually they’re kind of big because I like when a guy sucks on my neck ralely hard (fetish XD) and sometimes it’s like a reminder. And I don’t mind people knowing cuz everyone does it. It’s my mom who I don’t want bugging me about it. =_= Nice comic ♥

  5. Ok. This episode is too much. I’m from Newfoundland so when Stacy Keene mentioned Great Big Sea I thought oh that’s funny (they are from Newfoundland) but then when Melissa Murphy mentioned Guillian Barre syndrome it really hit home because my Mom came down with it 5 years ago. For her, it was different as it started in her hands and moved down but still. It’s funny to me that you put these two particular stories together. You are always so surprising Risk. I love it!
