Blindboy’s increased notability away from his band Rubberbandits, has allowed him to explore wider avenues and create perhaps 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 garnered over one million listeners, 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.
Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. There is a very authentic feeling of “freedom” he exudes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgement and no topic off limits. There is certainly an air of belonging encircling the space you find yourself in when listening to, or in company of, Blindboy.
His latest innovative creation, The Blindboy podcast does not only indoctrinate 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.
His uncanny ability to articulate what nearly everyone is thinking is unparalleled and something that is sorely needed in Irish society. The Daily Edge
