  1. post the pic of frank rodriguez!

  2. I loved this. Amazing sotires, so moving, and the song at the end so beautiful.

  3. Yes, let’s see Frank’s picture! That was a moving story, Kevin. Your description at age 5 was so sad. Thank you for such a fantastic podcast!

  4. This whole episode is so wonderful. Cameron’s story was so moving that it got my waterworks going. Definitely the high point on a day when I am watching women’s reproductive rights be turned back in my home state of Texas. RISK! is a community, and I can’t thank you enough for providing a multitude of perspectives.

  5. I was at the LA live show and saw Espisito perform and I still love listening to her in this podcast. All of these stories were powerful and makes me, as a gay man, and as a human being, feel less alone.

  6. Where’s Frank’s photo?? I love the show. Keep it up:)

  7. Yeah for real, we need that photo!
