Awesome episode. Some much of this is relevant to me and my workplace as a teacher. Community violence and its Impact on people, challenging behaviour, lack of language. Keep it up Blindboy. Love the show.

Genius Comedic Storyteller with kindness and goodness bouncing out of the podcast.

Only “discovered” this podcast last week. Have been bingeing every day since then. This has to be the best podcast out there. It’s really first class entertainment but you also learn alot. I love this man’s brain, intelligence, imagination and wit. I tune in when I’m out walking and sometimes just roar laughing out loud. Blindboy has a very unique talent and gift and deals with so many diverse topics and makes it both interesting and hilariously funny. I’m also struck by your kindness and empathy. For me this podcast is like going to a top class gig weekly. I’ve signed up on Patreon as this independent work needs to be supported.
