It is like you read my thoughts – Just what I was looking for!

I really disliked this episode. Sure I like some of the songs you play between stories, but a whole episode to that? That’s just not a Risk episode, it’s just a playlist. I’m in this podcast for stories not the music.

Hi Henrique,

RISK! listener here. Just so you know, I LOVED this episode. The music is always excellent in this podcast as well as the content and I could not be a more satisfied listener. You have a whole archive of RISK! podcasts to go through if you don’t like this week’s episode. If you don’t like it, start Henrique’s Podcast for Snobs and do all the work yourself. bye

I just have to say – this is the best playlist yet. I don’t have wifi at work to stream Spotify, so this is just what I needed.
Perfect. I love discovering new music through Risk.

Hi! Long term listener here. How can I submit music to Risk!?

I love the RISK! music compilation episodes and this is one of the best yet! I added the songs into an Amazon Music playlist for those of us without Spotify. Enjoy.

Just want to throw in my two cents that I LOVE the music episodes. I always find a new favorite, or am reminded of an old favorite that I haven’t thought about in years. If you’re not into the music episodes, I guess just hit “skip” and enjoy the extra two free hours you have for the week.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
