  1. Twin Peaks fans, are we? 😉

    It’s available on Netflix streaming right now in case you need a nostalgia boost.

    Another great episode, thanks Kev&Co.!

  2. Mat,

    I love that someone caught that. When I heard Elise’s story in class, I thought, oh this is David Lynch territory! Lumber Lane? Her best friend was named Mousey? And why was the first person she encountered dressed like a monk?!


  3. Don’t know what I would do without the RISK Pod cast there is nothing like it out there. I have been telling stories all my life but I have never found a show or pod cast that keeps it as real as RISK. RISK presents stories as they exist and would be told in the real world warts and all. I just hope that the day will come when I can share my own, at least now I am motivated to tell stories I would never tell in mixed company as Kevin would say. Despite being Black, heterosexual and 53, I wish I could be like Kevin when I grow up, he has at least 3 pair of balls. Please come back to North Carolina….PLEASE

  4. Just like Mike Amato..I am not Jewish but I am enraptured with Jewish Men. They aren’t “cheap” they just spend their money in all the right places and save on the everyday nonsense. They know how to treat a woman and are exceptionally giving in bed. Educated and naturally savvy, if you find a good one hang on tight. Shiksa for life!

  5. Great episode!
