  1. Kevin, it’s so easy to get sucked into the comparison loop (especially in the social media/facebook age)! Remember that you are doing important and amazing work, creating community and bringing people together to share their stories. It’s not a small thing and we so appreciate you!

  2. “The Casualty” broke my heart. I can only hope Matt and his family find peace. I would love to hear a follow-up story. Did they manage to locate Sarah?

  3. Well, if anyone has any leads or inside-information about finding someone like that, they should feel free to email us at kevin@risk-show.com. I don’t know the nitty-gritty about what avenues they have already gone down.

  4. Kevin, thanks for everything you do. Even you going vegan was influential. This show/podcast IS a lifesaver! I’m a 3rd shift trucker & you’ve kept me awake/alive PLENTY of late night early mornings! These stories are so influential, so interesting, entertaining & heartfelt. I haven’t heard a bad episode yet, and I went through the archives and downloaded them all! I’ve also purchased a few of them from itunes, great stuff! Kevin, thanks again. Also thanks to EVERYONE whose ever shared their story.
