Ryan took great delight this week in playing the tune, "It's a Small World," from the Disneyland Paris attraction of the same name. He played it again....and again...........and again. Eventually one brave listener Claire O'Brien got in touch to beseech him to stop, with her tale of woe at the hands of that particular ear-worm.
This week Ryan spoke to Councillor Hazel Chu about racism in Ireland, Sinéad Carroll about a serious dating dilemma, supervet Noel Fitzpatrick about sharing the love of animals, and Chris Donovan about the PTSD he suffered after serving with the defence forces.
Armando Iannucci is the man behind 'The Thick Of It', 'Veep' and 'The Death Of Stalin'. His new film is an adaptation of the novel 'David Copperfield' and Armando spoke to Ryan about bringing his typically comedy chops to a Charles Dickens' classic.
Commander Chris Hadfield was the first Canadian to walk in space. He's a former Air Force fighter pilot and has undertaken three space shuttle missions. He joined Ryan in studio to talk about his fascinating life and career.
