Episode 84 – Charlie Ryder – Documentary maker/Puppeteer

Charlie Ryder was born and grew up in London.

Both his parents came from Ireland and his affinity with the country of his ancestors is very strong.

1993 following a demonstration against the British National Party, Charlie was sentenced to 16 months in prison, of which he served 8 for good behaviour.

He wrote and performed a one man play based on his prison experience that he has performed in prisons in Ireland and UK as well as at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

He has worked as a social worker and carer and he has written a number of songs, including two that are played in this podcast. You can find out more about Charlie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or his website
