Episode #12: Ryan Phillips

From the professional hockey rink to running an international drug smuggling operation, Ryan Phillips talks about the pressures of being a young athlete with high expectations, and getting in too deep with doing and dealing drugs.  Serious trauma, sports, booze, money and drugs led to prison, sobriety, and ultimately redemption.  In a first of its kind pardon, after being banned from the US in the year 2000 for conspiracy to import 103 pounds of marijuana, the ban was lifted due to his world service efforts. The felon turned humanitarian shares all of it on this week’s podcast.
