Hi Kevin,

The “Stranger Danger” song used in your recent podcast was written by Patty Shukla, who controls all rights to the song. However, on the description of the podcast, it says “Stranger Danger” by Jeff Barr. I don’t know if he edited it or whatever, but the song should be listed as “Stranger Danger by Patty Shukla”. Please change that and keep up the great podcast!

I was very disappointed to hear you advertise psychics on your show. Considering that there is such a great skeptical show (ONRAC) on your network, I honestly thought you were better than that. Psychics cause real harm to many people, even when they truly believe they are genuine. They can have an enormous effect on people’s lives, yet the whole phenomenon is based on cognitive biases, cold reading (sometimes accidental), and misunderstanding basic statistics. (What are the chances they could predict something so accurately by chance? Very high, actually.)

I am just so disappointed in you Kevin. You went for the money and ignored the real risks to your audience. 🙁

I was there for the live taping in Austin! I loved Kate’s story. Keep up the great work, Kevin and everyone! I hope one day to be bold enough to tell my own stories on Risk!

I’m a longtime listener, and I truly appreciate this show and what you do. But I was a little taken aback today with the interstitial “Stranger Danger” song/jingle after a story about attempted child sexual assault; it was really jarring in tone and it felt inappropriate, especially toward survivors. I do understand that it’s hard to match tone of interstitials with stories, but just wanted to voice my thoughts here. Thanks for reading.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
