Experience The Blindboy Podcast live with Irish satirist Blindboy, Limerick's own polymath, author, screenwriter, songwriter, musician, producer and academic, to mark the release of his highly anticipated book.
Blindboy is one half of The Rubberbandits and one of Ireland's foremost artistic voices. His literary debut, The Gospel According to Blindboy, was a bestseller in 2017, and his weekly podcast reaches over 1,500,000 listeners monthly.
Described as a "cultural phenomenon" by The New York Times, The Blindboy Podcast is an award-winning, storytelling podcast in the Irish tradition of the Seanchaí which seamlessly intertwines history, fiction, cultural critique and politics into a relaxing form the creator calls ‘the podcast hug’.
For these live and exclusive events, Blindboy will offer the audience a unique and humorous insight into issues ranging from art, psychology, politics, science and music. Drawing from his years of live performance experience, Blindboy will read from his much-anticipated new book Topographia Hibernica – a visionary new short story collection that unravels the knotted threads of humanity, nature and colonisation.
With a surprise special guest at every show, these meditative evenings will seek to replicate a private conversation in a public space. In equal parts spontaneously endearing and refreshingly engaging, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
