This here is Ryan. Ryan Andrews. Approximately 18 months ago, Mum and I touched down in Redding, kicking off my crazy adventure here. The house I was to move into wasn't ready yet and Mum was hanging out here for a couple of weeks to help me settle in. We found ourselves at Ryan and Nissa's playing with their hilarious children, eating way too much food and having some of the best conversation about anything and everything. We drank milk which had been picked up at a nearby farm, watched them make pancakes from flour which they had just made from scratch, laughed at the so-called spicy kimchi Trader Joe's sells, cracked coconuts with a giant machete and pretended to ride a Harley Davidson - just for the gram.
Needless to say Ryan and Nissa are family so it is with so much pride and excitement that I see Ryan's latest undertaking, The Human Project, exponentially exploding alongside his partners Wes Chapman and Liviu Zoe. Each day, Wes and Ryan sit down and chat about important human issues and hit Publish, sending the addictive, funny Human Podcast out into the world and inviting people into new, informed perspective as well as the challenge for personal positive action be made. The result has been incredible influence - contacted by Apple themselves and currently featured on the home page of iTunes, Wes and Ryan recently had Angelina Jolie herself chime in on a show, and the feedback from people has been phenomenal.
It is such a privilege to be spending some of my time seeing this project unfold. 2015 is going to be massive for these guys and I'm expecting their impact to measure in the millions. Cheers, boys!
