About Blindboy

Blindboy’s increased notability away from his band Rubberbandits, has allowed for him to explore wider avenues and create perhaps outrageously mind-altering brainchildren which can only be described as courageous, yet bonkers. Now with an audience of over 1,000,000.00 people listening and a new show going live with the BBC in early 2019.

Has over 1 x million listeners to his podcast

Outspoken, informed, and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. There is a very authentic feeling of “freedom” he exhumes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgment and no topic off limits – certainly an air of belonging encircling the space you find yourself in when listening or in the company.
His latest innovative creation, The podcast not only espouses mental health issues but reaches further into an eclectic spectrum of current topics from gun laws to feminism, racism, or a bit of history. Blindboy has it covered.
