Kevin Allison, the producer and host of RISK!, seeks storytellers from the Twin Cities for this show! “The optional themes are The Great Unknown, or Stunning, or Animal,” Kevin says, but. “what's most important for us is that the stories are high stakes and revealing... that they feel somewhat "risky" to be sharing.”
