The Blindboy Podcast

Blindboy’s increased notability away from his band Rubberbandits, has allowed for him to explore wider avenues and create outrageously mind-altering brainchildren which can only be described as courageous, yet bonkers.

With a number one selling book under his belt and a podcast that has reached interest not only in Ireland but internationally, the satirist could possibly single-handedly change people’s mind set on mental health and the deafening stigma it surrounds. The Blindboy Podcast has now exceeded 40 million listeners and is global. His recent UK tour sold out and he was also nominated for four awards at the Irish Podcast Awards.

Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. The Blindboy Podcast not only deals with mental health issues, but reaches further into a wide spectrum of current topics; be it gun laws, feminism, racism or a bit of history . . .  Blindboy has it covered.
