  1. I can’t stop crying. If only things could have turned out differently for that poor woman.

  2. Until I found this I thgouht I’d have to spend the day inside.

  3. this story made me so sad…

  4. Where can i watch the video?

  5. Wow, this is why I listen to risk. Brutal human honesty.
    Here’s a link to the video

  6. Very sad story beautifully told, however I was listening from a slightly different perspective as I had mistakenly thought that Jan was Jon. To find out afterwards that the story teller was female (with a gender neutral voice) made it even more heartbreaking, because the potential perception of threat was probably a complete illusion.

  7. As a first timer to this podcast/radio show I can say that I’m hooked. This story got me. jesus.
