Thank you so much to Tim C for sharing his story. My father worked in child abuse as a police officer for 8 years and also left it with PTSD. I didn’t know he had it until years after and I feel like he dealt with it alone. I wish I could have been there for him when he was going through it. Your story helped me understand what he was going through in a way. I hope you have found your peace….This is exactly why I love Risk!!!

This was a great episode. I am glad I got to be a part of it. Risk! means a lot to me. I am talking to you. I can see you on my screen right now. You have two eyes, a nose and a mouth. Yeah, you… go tell your friends and family about Risk! DO IT!

This episode is a long one! I suspect some listeners will want to hear a couple stories… take a break… then come back later. (That’s actually how I listen to a lot of podcasts.) It’s also an emotional rollercoaster. There’s some hilariously funny parts… some genuinely frightening parts… and some beautifully moving parts. Newcomers will probably be struck by just how loaded with life these 2 hours and 28 minutes are. I hope a ton of people hear this one. It’s a truly outstanding example of what RISK! can do.

You really need to start a separate podcast for revolting gay and other perversion stories. Seriously? I tried to forward as quickly as I could through the disgusting details of kevin’s story. Still ended up disturbed and mildly nauseous all day. Same with the kink camp filth. I love a good, edgy story, but this trash is beyond the pale. Then you have the nerve to include it as a best episode? I guess it’s your show, but I feel sick after listening to these episodes. Ick. P

I am completely, utterly, wholeheartedly hooked on this podcast. It has edged out all others while I frantically listen to as many episodes as I can, and I love them all: the beautiful, the heartbreaking, the scary and, yes, the “perverted” and ” gross” stories too. I am always entertained but also provoked to thought, and learning empathy for people I may not have previously understood is always a good thing (D.K. Anderson, I’m looking at you!). If stories like that aren’t your thing, perhaps The Moth may be what you’re looking for. Amirite?
In any case, i am always inspired. I keep threatening to pitch my own story (but since I’m the only one I’m threatening, it’s not terribly effective yet). Thanks for the amazing show.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
