RISK! is the show where people tell true stories they never thought they'd dare to share in public. Created and hosted by Kevin Allison (MTV's "The State," "Reno 911!," "High Maintenance," etc), the RISK! podcast is downloaded over 1 million times each month and features famous folks and ordinary people sharing the most hilarious, intimate, moving and incredible moments from their lives. Slate.com calls RISK! "Jaw-dropping, hilarious and just plain touching."
