A Short Life Story

"Turi Ryder's She Said What?" Podcast is Turi living her life in real time--so to keep up on this bio, try www.shesaidwhat.net Turi Ryder's fictionalized memoir, "She Said What?", is now available from Chicago's Tortoise Books, your independent bookseller, or that humongous website that sells everything and is owned by the richest man in the world. Is that enough hints?  "She Said What?" is also being shaped into a one-woman show with the help of Chicago director Rachel Slavick. Rachel will decide at a later date whether it was a good idea to publicly admit she's involved in the project.

Turi spent years as a music jock in Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. You may have heard Turi hosting her own talk show on WGN Chicago, KSTP Minneapolis, WLS Chicago, KIRO Seattle,  FreeFM San Francisco,  or KFI Los Angeles

She made the switch to talk radio and morning drive at KGW in Portland. From there, Ryder spent three years at KSTP Minneapolis, then moved back to Chicago. Anticipating the dotcom boom and bust by about four years, Ryder tumbled through a series of short-lived stations. You could have heard her at WLS FM Chicago, "The Zone" in Los Angeles, or KPIX FM in San Francisco, all in the space of two years.

After decompressing at KFI Los Angeles for awhile, Ryder decided that perhaps it was wiser to seek stability on the domestic front. She created the "Turi Ryder's Exception to the Rule" humor feature on domestic life for the CBS radio network for six years, as well as hosting the live syndicated radio show, "America Weekend." She also creates imaging and promotions for Bloomberg Radio.
