How many rich people will let you swim in their pool on a hot day? I went and found out. I also speak to Lewis Spears as he reveals how he's been banned from the Australian Podcast Awards for life.
The General Manager of Muffin Break accused all millennials of being entitled because no one wanted to work in her cafe's for free. I also call a 13 year old podcast listener who's trying to hustle me into buying his t shirts.
2019 means The Ryan Jon Report. Brigitte has moved to the other side of the country but that doesn't mean I can't test out a bogus Valentine's Day theory on her.
Taylor Swift's Reputation Tour is currently in Australia and the allocation tickets in the Hit 929 Office has caused a kerfuffle. Was it a bit of fun and great radio? Or did I go to far and begin the journey of no longer working there anymore?
Have you heard about the Colored Plastic Bag Scam In Bali? Maybe you've been to Bali and been a victim of this and never realised? Hear the audio of me testing the theory in the Indonesian markets.
THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS is a documentary about identical triplets who were separated at birth. Whilst the story of them finding each other is heart warming at first when you dig a little deeper and learn why they were separated in the first place this feel good movie isn't such a feel good movie anymore. Lots of people have tagged my mum and I in posts about it and asked what we thought so went to see it and recorded our chat afterwards. Let me know your thoughts in the Life Of Ryan Facebook group.
Co host Taylor is just days away from becoming a first time father so we quiz him on how much he's learned doing birthing classes.
Ken Allen was a regular Aussie Dad with a regular Aussie family until one phone call changed his life. We gave him a call to discuss being a "regular dad" compared with a "biological father" and ask how he found out he had 11 more children than he originally thought.

Someone assumed I was having a workplace affair and the evidence is damming.We also translate passive aggressive emails, the worst thing about working in an office. This episode has an "Explicit Language Warning" because the translations are honest.
It's Father's Day in Australia and it's my first one since meeting my biological father.Lots of people have asked lots of questions about "Who do you call first?" and "Is it weird and awkward now?" so in this little episode I'll answer those questions. Some of the audio is from my "Heidi, Xavier and Ryan" radio show in Perth. Thanks for listening and if it's not too much trouble, I'd love it if you left a review or a rating. Cheers,
Taylor conducts a relationship test between Ryan and Brigitte. There's also some thank you's to give after the last episode, "My Best Mate Dave Lost His Mother" raised $13,000 and Brigitte has also received lots of messages of support from her episode, "Brigitte Bursts Into Tears At The Sight Of Pregnant Ladies". Thanks for listening and if you're enjoying it, please leave a rating and review on whichever app you're listening to this.
Dave is my best mate and he needs your help. Dave lost his mother to MND (ALS) and is running 300km (187Miles) in just 5 days to raise money to help find a cure and to also assist families currently experiencing this horrible disease. Dave is one of the best people you'll meet but this, in my eyes, puts him into the hero catergory and I'd love everyone to show him some support.

I still get 1,000s of emails every week and every time it's from someone named Julie (the name of my birth mother) my heart skips a beat. I've been sent screen shots of Julie's being tagged in my videos and whilst it's hard for me, it's also hard for them cause all these birth mothers get a quick sense of hope that they've found the child they once placed into adoption. In this episode I call Julie from Michigan in the USA and she's an incredible women. If you like this episode or the show in general, it would mean a lot to Brigitte, Taylor and myself Ryan if you left us a 5 star rating a review. You can also join the 'Life Of Ryan' Facebook group. Just search 'Life Of Ryan'. Thanks for listening.
