I just listened to dissatisfied. I absolutely love this one. The last story by Chris Hoffman is so incredibly powerful. I’m listening at work w ear buds, after he finished I unabashedly stood back and said fuck ya man out loud.

Thanks for this. Great show as always. Chris Hoffman’s story had me fighting back tears in my car today. I’m looking forward to the Nashville show.

Oh My, Kevin, you have created the most amazing show – both in general every week and specifically this weeks show.

Chris Hoffman, Thank you over and over again. Your story took me through all the emotions and left me feeling a sense of hope and love for where we each are on our path. through the tears, I thank you for sharing a piece of yourself.

Oh, Kevin–this week’s show is a revelation. I loved all the speakers–but Chris Hoffmann…wow. Just wow…

I liked hearing Nisha Coleman’s story. Her description of trying to explain the absence of sexual desire was pretty spot on.

I was going to say the same thing, Other Alyssa.

RISK is my absolute favorite podcast show by far, specially for moments like I just experienced, when a story touches me so deeply that I break down in tears and learn something about my own story that I may have not even realized I didnt know. Thank You Chris Hoffman. I found your story reflecting something for me that I have been seeking in my mind but ignoring for so long in the flesh. Thank you so much for sharing. Beautiful. Raw. Stunning.
There is so much to be learned from this story <3

Blown away by this episode. Was in tears by the end of Chris Hoffmanns story. I can’t believe I just missed him in Austin. Definitely want to hear more from him. Bravo!

Chris, thank you so much for that story.
It reinforces me when I feel misunderstood and lonely even though I’m surrounded by people. I hate hiding, I hate feeling ashamed of myself.

RISK is a great show. I love Kevin, he is so unique, honest and funny.

I keep coming back to this story by Cyndi Freeman. There is just something about how she talks about her ex with a mix of respect and empathy, but still recognizing that the way he treated her was painful. I want to hear more from her!

Chris Hoffman’s story…. I stopped everything I was doing at work, and completely focused on his ending words that touched and resonated with me. Embracing ourselves… Not hiding ourselves from other people.. Honest. Raw. Real. I might love him.
