  1. great to hear an Aussie on Risk! well done
    more…..more

  2. For reasons I can’t quite fully place, I will say “Is the Pope a Cunt?” is one of the best stories I’ve heard in a while.

  3. Thanks Kyle, i appreciate the feedback xx

  4. I totally agree with Kyle above. I listened to “Is the Pope a Cunt” a month ago and have made two other people listen to it. And I think I’ve listened to it four times now. It’s well-written and well-read, and it’s just a beautiful piece of shameless human condition.

  5. I love all of the Risk shows! Sooo much!! But Adam Newmam’s story I found to be cruel :/ hate to judge someone’s story, but he came off like a giant twat.
