I absolutely love the music of Risk!. I’m so happy whenever these episodes come out. I just wish these episodes were actual albums so that I could totally listen to them everywhere! Thank you for the Spotify playlist. <3

I also feel compelled to say how much I adore the music episodes. Also adore how the playlist is available here! I was hoping it would be. Now I can buy all the songs I love! Thank you!

Thanks guys! We love hearing when people appreciate the music episodes. Finding all this music takes tons of research but we feel it adds so much energy and life to the show. I often play these mixes at social gatherings or when I’m out walking. Sometimes a song will remind me of a story that preceded it. Or just a particular era that RISK! was going through when we discovered that song. Lately I’ve been reviewing the oldest episodes from 2009 – 2013 and I’m shocked how many great songs didn’t even make it onto the Best of RISK! Music compilations from back then!

This mix is outstanding! How do you afford the royalties? However you do it, your taste is impeccable! And the music really enhances what is already a fantastic show. Big up!

Love your musical selections. I often hunt them down and add them to my playlists. These compilations make it much easier to do that successfully! Thanks.

I’m not sure if someone has previously done this or on other platforms, but I compiled a playlist of all the “best of” music tracks from RISK! on iTunes.

I was just watching a music reviewer talk about “Feel It Still” and how he can’t really like the song because the first place he heard it was in an ad and he can’t shake that initial association in his mind. He went on to talk about how the only way new musicians can even make money these days is via such ads and so his first exposure to new music is always in some ad and so he finds himself not really listening to new music any more. The first place I heard “Feel It Still” was this podcast and I’ll be forever grateful. The need for exposure for new music via podcasts can not be overstated in the current musical climate.
