  1. Kevin, What is the music behind the end of Dario’s story? His story was really moving. Great job.

  2. I’m not arguing Grammie’s bad attitude, but where I’m from ‘mackerel snapper’ is not an insult. (https://www.facebook.com/events/1716341685308016/). Now ‘herring choker’, them’s fightin’ words…

  3. Chad,
    The closing song is Wait for Me by Aaron Mist. Here is a link to download it and more beautiful works by this great Kazakhstan composer: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Aaron_Mist/

  4. This guy Ian is great. Wish I could hear more of him!

  5. Everyone deserves sympathy; without sympathy directed towards them people often become the type of people that others think deserve no sympathy.

  6. Ian Steffe is fabulous! I will be listening to his story a second time.

  7. Loved this episode. Also, just wanted to say that I started listening to this podcast after a story from RISK played on my Pandora comedy station. I fell in love with the stories almost immediately. I work overnight and have no one to talk to so these stories have helped me not only learn but empathize with other people and fight off that ever-looming loneliness. I showed a few of my friends and coworkers and it spread like wildfire. They told their roommates about it who then told their sister who told their mom and so on. So anyway, I will continue to recommend this podcast to anyone who wishes to hear real accounts of the human experience and break away from the false idea of being absolutely alone in the world. Thank you Kevin and thank you to all the brave people who were able to share their experiences.
