  1. Mara Wilson is awesome! I hope she is in another RISK! soon!

  2. I’m trying to figure out what the song/artist is at the 38:40 mark on the podcast is. It leads into Tommy’s story, but it’s not “Pioneers” as listed above. It sounds like a cover of The Clash’s “Straight to Hell”… Help!

  3. Hey there! Jeff the editor here! The song is actually an instrumental version of Princeton’s song ‘Andre’. Here’s a link to the full song:
    ‘Pioneers’ is the song just before it.

  4. This is amazing, charming, and hilarious!
    I would definitely like to know how Tommy recovered from his experience.

  5. I own that “Safe is Sexy t-shirt”!!

  6. Those seconds! At 25.10, for an eternal blink of the eye, there are 15 seconds of music (preceding ‘Pioneers’). What is the song/artist? I love those sounds and can’t find it anywhere… Makes me a sad panda.
    Btw, i Love the show! I’m on an aurally crusade through the chronological madness of Risk! and loving every step!
    I hope to hear from someone that knows what i do not. In any case; cheers, cheers and cheers! In all it’s senses.
