Life offers us many opportunities but some seem too risky to accept. How do we choose what is worth the risk? The Art of Risk is a podcast exploring gutsy choices made by colorful characters. The show defines risk as an active decision that has potential to result in a negative outcome. Our emphasis is not on talking with athletic daredevils, but people who have taken cultural, social, financial, emotional, and even existential risks.

I highly recommend this for those who have trepidation, stagnation or simply yearn for a dose of adventure and risk, even if listening from the sidelines.
