My first ever red carpet for Beat 102 103 was at the Irish Film And Television Awards and it was lots of fun. I got to meet loads of celebrities like the lads from Moone Boy and Jack Reynor who’s goin’ to be in Transformers. I was a little bit scared interviewin’ people for the radio. I sent this podcast to your man from Moone Boy and Jack Reynor on Twitter but neither of them wrote back! It’s a pity coz they were rides. Actually the chap from Moone Boy wasn’t be he was really funny. I plan to do a lot more red carpets now I have me first one out of the way. I need a whole new wardrobe though for stuff like this. I need a sugar daddy!

I know Valentines Day was ages ago but still so was this podcast and it doesn’t really matter coz this is my blog and I can write what I want unless someone sues me. So I decided for the Ryde Report on Valentines Day to ask people what the worst present they ever got was. Some of the stuff that people said was perverse and not something I could put on a breakfast show on mainstream radio! I mean where do half of these perverts come from and why do they seem to follow me around.
Anyway have a listen to what the semi-normal people had to say.
Yes I have returned from Spain in case you were wonderin’ where I was! Had a few adventures along the way that I’ll talk about some time in the next few days! The main reason I haven’t been bloggin’ is that I had to buy a new computer coz when I came home, me hard drive was fried. Crap buzz but ah well! I’m back in the game. I said IN the game, not ON the game!

I guess this is kinda the opposite of yesterday when I asked people which Celebrity they wouldn’t like to be in Big Brother with. Actually it’s not really. The question was, if you could be a celebrity for a day who would it be and why. Ya can listen to all me podcasts at JoannaRyde.podomatic.com or ya could just listen to the Ryde Report on Thursday mornings on Beat Breakfast on Beat 102 103. I’m gettin’ good at this pluggin’ thing amn't I?
Maybe you should start answerin’ the questions! If you were a celebrity for a day who would you be and why? Comment below!

Ah Celebrity Big Brother. It’s one of those things that comes around and ya hear people talk about but never actually watch. I remember Big Brother used to be good. Back when it started many moons ago.
Anyway, I decided for my Ryde Report for whatever week this was on the radio (Thursdays at half 9, Beat 102 103) to ask people what celebrity they’d least like to be stuck in the Big Brother house with. I had a list actually but I have to be nice to people until I’m a big star and THEN I can slate them!

I just wrote this entire post out already and forgot to press publish before I closed it down.
This was the first interview I did on the radio, not like the usually chattin’ to people on the street I do so was a little bit different. I did it over the phone as well so was a little bit harder to interact and don’t think me comedy came across that well so the ones I’d planned to do after this I didn’t bother. No I’m much better in person!
Me and Kiera actually go way back! We were like sisters growin’ up. God love her, she got some stick coz her da (Christy Dignam from Aslan) had a bit of a go at the show the year before. Bressie wasn’t too impressed.
Anyway here’s the interview.

Are ya bored of me podcasts yet? Ya better be like “No JoJo, we LOVE your podcasts.” Which is proper order. So we’re into the new year and over the Christmas and New years podcasts that we’ve been chattin’ about the last few days. This one is all about bad TV shows and there was loads on at the time which is where I got the idea from.

Yay we’re finished with the Christmas podcasts! I actually liked them but I understand it’s March and time to move on. So after Christmas, we were on a bit of a break from Beat Breakfast and so this is the first podcast to not be broadcast on the radio. I made it especially for the internet coz I knew me fans would be missin’ me. All 3 of them!
I decided to ask people about their New Years revolutions and because it wasn’t on radio I could talk about things I amn’t normally allowed talk about like drink!
Sunday, March 24, 2013
Oh I forgot this one! It was from the week before the last one. Again remember you can catch me every week on Beat Breakfast at half 9 of a Thursday by the way! I kinda have to keep pluggin’ that or you’ll think I just make these podcasts for a bit a laugh and that’s not true. I actually do have a purpose behind makin’ them.
So yeah, for this one I thought I’d find out what celebrity people would like to find in their Christmas stockin’s when they open them on Christmas mornin’. Again, people spoke all manner of shite but I dug through that and came up with this!
Saturday, March 23, 2013
AGAIN, it’s not Christmas anymore but bare with me. Is it bare? Or bear? I don’t know. Anyway, as I’ve said before I’m just postin’ these in order and right now it happens to be around the whole Christmas time so that’s what I’m postin’ about.
So this Ryde Report (Thursdays at half 9 on Beat 102 103) was all about the worst Christmas present people received. I got some strange answers and some of them I actually couldn’t put on mornin’ radio. There’s some amount of perverts out there really isn’t there. Dirt birds.

Ah this was a fun one. I ended up chattin’ to people about this for ages. Vinny was mad to hear all about me Barbie called Trevor. Poor Trevor. Yeah so it was the Beat Breakfast Toy Show for the whole week and so I decided to have a bit of a laugh and do a special Ryde Report based around that. It brought me back to me own childhood growin’ up on the Northside of Dublin. Ah the memories. Again, I know it’s a Christmas theme but I’m just postin’ these every day in the order they were made. I hope that’s not goin’ to be an issue. To be fair, we’re nearly finished with the whole Christmas thing anyway and sure it’s only 9 months away anyway!
Thursday, March 21, 2013
Again with the Christmas theme here on the blog but I’m goin’ in order so deal with it. This report was good fun and we got a bit of a debate goin’ on Twitter on Facebook and ya know me, I like stirrin’ up a bit of opinion.
I got all sorts of weird answers and decided to have a little chart at the end coz I was kinda bored and couldn’t think of anything else to do. I like my little chart run down actually. I’d be AMAZIN’ on Top Of The Pops! Say nothin’ about Jimmy Saville!
Oh this was recorded in Waterford Institute Of Technology. They’re all mad there!

My next Beat Breakfast Ryde Report took me all the way to Carlow of all places to ask people what they would do if they won the Euromillions. The answers I got were very strange bein’ honest but then again, it is Carlow. I’d love to win the Euromillions. I’d buy a football team. Granted they probably wouldn’t be a good football team but you’re talkin’ at least League Of Ireland.
So the things people said they’d spend their Euromillions money on was a little bit strange. It was 170 Million euro that week so clearly everyone and their granny was out doin’ it. I don’t have a granny!

Me 3rd report for Beat saw me head out onto the streets of Waterford to talk to the lovely people about their shoppin’ tips. Of course approachin’ strangers on the street is somethin’ I had to get used to really quickly when I started workin’ on the radio. I used to use a microphone with Beat written on it and now I just use my phone so it looks a little strange but then again, people think I’m nuts anyway so I’m not that bothered.
This one was good fun actually coz people were in great spirits and bein’ really nice and it wasn’t even that cold out so it was a nice enough day. I got great tips for me shoppin’! Yes I know it’s about Christmas and it’s now March but it only started snowin’ last week. Actually there’s some more Christmas ones comin’ up in the next few days!
Monday, March 18, 2013
Continuin’ on from yesterday’s start of me podcasts here on the blog I decided to continue. Actually I was plannin’ to continue all along but shush! Isn’t also magic that I’m in Spain and the blog is still goin’! LOL
The second report I had to do for Beat (I’m on Thursdays at half 9) was at the Nicki Minaj concert at the O2 in Dublin and I was tryin’ to get an interview with the great woman herself. Clearly I went to watch the concert first, chatted to a few people there for the show and then headed backstage to try find her. Didn’t go accordin’ to plan but at least I tried! SPIT ON ME NICKI!

Okay so I’ve been bringin’ yiz all me videos over the last few months and recently someone asked me to start postin’ all me podcasts too although I don’t know why they can’t just go to JoannaRyde.Podomatic.com and listen to them all there!
If you want to listen to me live ya can. I’m on Beat 102 103 every Thursday mornin’ around half 9 and repeated again that night AND on Saturday mornin’s! Beat can be picked up in Waterford, Wexford, Tipperary, Carlow, Kilkenny and places near there or online OR on the app which ya can download for your iPhone or Android! Now I did all me pluggin’!
So this is the first podcast I ever recorded. I was sent to the Irish Conker Championships in Freshford in Kilkenny. Beat didn’t really know what was gonna happen but fair play they took a chance on me and this is how it went!

So if you’ve been wonderin’ where I’ve been the last few days and are kinda devastated, all I can do is say sorry. Actually I’m not sorry! I’ve been in bed all weekend with a cold. I feel crappy, me muscles won’t move and there’s a severe amount of snot comin’ out of me. I’m bored though so I got out of bed to get on the computer. Someone send around some Calpol!
Thursday, March 7, 2013
I’ve been meaning to put me podcasts on the blog for ages and just keep forgettin’ about it! I’ll start puttin’ all the ones I’ve done so far up in the next few days! Here’s the one from today. If you want to listen live, ya can catch me every Thursday mornin’ on Beat 102 103 at half 9.
This week I had a Brazilian Jujitsu lesson! Was lots of fun!
