I am a big fan of Risk! , and have the podcast on my IPhone.

This story started fantastically. The author was descriptive and I felt like I was in her shoes. During the middle, I kept telling myself, “the redemption is coming…. the redemption is coming, …” In the end, it never came.

I am disgusted by Donna Steele’s cowardice.

Eighteen months ago, I had to help my 76 year father, pull down his pants, find his penis, and urinate. I accepted the duty.

Just this evening… I drove my mother to the grocery store. During the car ride, I could smell that she had not changed her diaper. I pulled over, and we discussed it as adults. We then went to her home and changed her in to clean clothes.

I understand that Ms. Steele’s anecdote is “honest”, but this type of story is not what I expect from Risk!.’ Ms. Steele did not “risk” anything, she chose the path of regret.

I will be deleting Risk! form my Iphone.

Wow! I dread to think what my face looked like while listening to this story! Such a strange situation, and the descriptions of temperature/smell/responses from the other people in the shop were so immersive… exactly the sort of weird and shocking story that sets Risk apart from other podcasts

Wow I cant believe someone would delete such a awesome podcast like Risk over this story! I was cracking up the whole time! If there ever was a story that deserved a animated video it would be this one. I was picturing it the whole time.. kinda like those blank on blank videos.. Would be awesome!! Love you guys!
