  1. Thank you for the entertainment! I’m interested in a song that I’ve heard in a past segment of Extra Risk that I believe is titled “Down By The Riverside” by Agnice… somebody. I really liked this song & would like to hear others from this artist. Can you assist me with this artists full name & actual song title, please?
    Thank you for your help!

  2. Eliot! I love that song too! It’s called Riverside and it’s by Agnes Obel in her Philharmonics album! Enjoy her other songs too!
    I love Risk songs! They really capture the emotions for each story! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

  3. Been playing this episode over and over. Thank you!

  5. I really love these music episodes! Definitely my go-to for thoughtful music playlists!

  6. risk!!! i love you so so very much, and i can’t believe you’ve done it again!
    not only are these rich, fun, and beautiful songs that truly capture what a treasure risk is (seriously…. no words!), but also, this mix is perfectly crafted, a story of its own.
    basically, THANK YOU. for breathing so much life.
