As an avid commuter I tend to find myself dozing off on the train listening to music, so I decided to give listening to podcasts a try. Turns out, they don’t get enough credit! I enjoy listening to stories and comedy, topics and people who will teach me a thing or two on my way to work.

RISK! is a weekly podcast and live storytelling show created and hosted by writer and actor Kevin Allison, “Where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public”. The stories are so entertaining, each week there’s a new topic of stories being told so you can pick and choose which topics you’re interested in. Some are relatable, funny, sad, but nevertheless interesting to listen to.
