About the Hosts

Kim Ryan

Kim Ryan

Co-CEO and Host

The wife keeps the show on the straight-and-narrow. When Ed veers off course she reels him back in and keeps him from losing all of the shows listeners. Kim was reluctantly pulled into this weekend event but seems to be enjoying it on occasion.

Ed Ryan

Ed Ryan

Co-CEO and Host

It was Ed's idea to launch the show on August 4, 2018. An idea and a tape recorder has grown into thousands of listeners, a weekly newsletter and requests to appear and host at other community events. You never know. During the day Ed is the editor of Radio Ink Magazine and The Podcast Business Journal.
