Re: Is he alright?

Those girls are pathetic. He might have not acted good but thatís not a reason to tell that on a podcast. I am a girl
And I have been ghost before and I have told that to my friends but I would never do it on a pod. They could have talked about red flags on guys behaviours in general but expose anyone like that is absolutely pathetic.

Re: Is he alright?

Listened to the whole thing. Not sure what to make if it really. I didnít think he came off too badly, maybe just sad and lonely. Kate is clearly bitter about the whole thing and being ghosted but I donít think he did too much wrong there. Ericaís story was a bit more concerning because of the comments on sobriety and how quickly he got attached. Given all of the MeToo scandal I donít think he did too much wrong. He wasnít abusive to them (they said he was always complimentary) and itís not like he took advantage of them. He clearly needs to carry on with therapy and get himself better and not get so hung up about having a woman in his life.

I have been ghosted before and it hurst. But I would have never thought about putting it on a podcast. (Just tired my roommate with the story...)

Kinda worried about him again. He was relentless on IG over the weekend.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it but I hope he's doing ok.

Re: Is he alright?

I expected the stories about drug use and self centered behavior, but if all this is true, he follows social media and texts like a teenage girl. He is a 44 year old man who cares about social media and texts feelings. Seriously this guy needs an intervention.

yeah, same. i havenít been on here or social media much recently but listened to 15 minutes or so of this podcast and itís just pretty scary tbh.

Many addicts are addicts of all sorts, ie Love, Drugs, Alcohol, Self destructive behavior. Iíve toed this line and itís a beast. I really hope he is actually going to AA and has a solid support system. Iím pulling for him.

Also the first rule of being a comedian is tell everyone youíre a comedian and the second rule is start a podcast.

i think it was kinda hard to believe that he was a recovering addict but was only doing weed. Not to say there was anything wrong with that but judging from his actions and outbursts over the last few years, i think it was more obvious that he relapsed to something harder. He seems to be really looking for validation though.

Re: Is he alright?

As a longtime Ryan Adams agitator, I sadly have to say that I have his back on this one. That podcast is nothing more than two bitter exes griping about their ex, the kind of thing that should be done at a bar or over a bottomless mimosas LA brunch, not on a podcast. The host...well...it's pretty obvious what happened. He liked her and thought she was attractive. They dated for a while. Then he grew annoyed with her (as we all did after five minutes of the podcast) and broke it off. Then she went all psycho stalker (listen to what she's saying...driving past his studio, warning off people she sees flirting with him on social media, etc) so he ghosted her, as you will. The other guest, I mean, they never even slept together. So they hung out a few times. She wasn't into his partying and clingy nature, so she kept her distance, and he realized this and moved on. There's no MeToo moment here, no abuse or treachery, just adults going about their complicated romantic entanglements. So to go on a podcast and blow up the man's privacy by exposing his drug use and emotional issues is just a complete, spiteful cheap shot and it's a great thing this didn't catch on with the press beyond the RA message boards. So there you have it. For once in my life. I stand with you, Ryan.

Completely agree. I thought it was pretty shitty on these girls part and I definitely got the same vibe about the host and thought it was glaringly obvious what went down even though she appears to think she is making herself look good. She came off as extremely immature and obsessive to me. She says “this is not a revenge podcast” when it obviously is.

She was so annoying, I didn’t even bother to finish listening. It was no secret he was going through a hard time/relapse around when all this transpired. Her putting it all out there isn’t going to help things any.

Re: Is he alright?

I regret to have listened to this podcast.
From the start I didnīt liked the attitude of the host-comedian which made me cautious to believe her words at all. She sounds frustrated as in the end she got dumped by Ryan.
The other guest-comedian dumped Ryan and seemed to be in the end still more concerned about her ex-boyfriend....

I donīt say that Ryan is an angel, either. But, itīs sad if Ryan relapsed, again.
I donīt know what parts of the stories are true or not.
I guess business is hard. Anyway listening to this podcast was in the end I think a waste of time and I will avoid those comedians. They didnīt win me as a fan of them.
Actually, Iīm disturbed of listening so much immature behaviour.
I hopefully will avoid in the future gossip!
Does the show have to go on?

Re: Is he alright?

He has repeatedly changed the caption on his latest Instagram post to threaten to quit and cancel all of his tours. He just did an Instagram live where he flipped off a test pressing of the new album and said he didn't give a fuck. So I'm sure everything's fine.

Re: Is he alright?

Also caught the Instagram live and the rapid Instagram recaptionings - I’m pretty shocked his UK tour hasn’t sold out already.
Anyone else notice a link between the UK tour announcement and turn in how he’s acted on social media, which has led to us discussing his wellbeing? Prior to the announcement I thought he was doing great, and he did some great Instagram lives and album promoting on social media.
Since the UK tour went on sale I just think he must have been disappointed by the reception it got - he’s releasing 3 albums this year, it’s well documented the difficulties he faces when touring, and he promoted the shows as the biggest he’s done. Hell, I’d be disappointed if I were him, having put in the work and all. The Royal Albert Hall second show in particular seems to be a big deal, hoping that sells out soon as I’m sure they’ll be targeted as the shows he’s most looking forward to.
In all, just hoping he’s ok and he’s got a good support group around him.

There does seem to be a correlation. Even last week someone asked if he was doing Australia and he replied he canít afford it and doesnít have fans there or something like that

Re: Is he alright?

Yeah, the rollout for this has been extremely ambitious and it wouldn't surprise me if his new manager came in and promised the world to him. If he's really playing Madison Square Garden, I have no idea how he'd ever sell it out, unless he's talking about the smaller theater.

He's clearly struggling, but I've been a pretty dedicated fan for nearly two decades, and I've lost count over how many meltdowns he's had. Maybe I'm being cold and pessimistic, but I've learned to just accept this as a big part of who he is, and trust that he'll bounce back, however temporary. It's a bummer, though. I commented on Instagram that if he's serious about walking away, to just do it and figure out what makes him happy. Totally well meaning, but I anticipate being blocked.

Walking a way for a long period is the best move for him. Even if he just lands on 2 records. Dude needs a several year break. Sort shit out.

Yeah, I agree. Itís not uncommon for people to put themselves in recovery circles and still use. The weed thing is a bigger topic and it seemed like it worked until it didnít anymore for Ryan.

Thereís a recovery podcast called Dopey that was featured on the last episode of This American Life. Long story short, one of the hosts who was four years clean and even studying to be a counselor ended up relapsing, and died by OD. Believed to have even recorded a few episodes high. Had a beautiful life in recovery but just goes to show how cunning, baffling and powerful it can be.

Who knows. So much speculation. I honestly just hope he can get sustainably healthy.

Re: Is he alright?

The sad part is he had something great with the cardinals and then blew it to shit. His last tour was basically playing the same songs every night. People get bored with that. The last time i saw him, i thought the show felt like he was just going through the motions.

I'm excited for the 3 new albums but I'm waiting to hear how they sound or what he's doing at shows before i bite.
