Episode 1641: The Player’s Chair With Blindboy Boatclub
Richie’s latest guest is not a player or a manager, and in fact has no connection to sport of any kind. As Blindboy says himself “I don’t have the gift of understanding sports”.
He is however, the most mentioned third party in Richie’s psychotherapist practice, because of how relatable and logical he is on the topics of therapy, mental health, dealing with anxiety, and every day issues we all struggle with.
Day by day I gradually realise that most Irish politicians are your friends ma who shares subtly racist Facebook posts

Blindboy explains why sport has no place in his life but how he is learning to accept the place it has in the world, and how he does envy those who enjoy sport.
Richie and Blindboy discuss finding flow in sport, art and Lego, getting meaning from dogs, the plastic bag, and the success of his new book Boulevard Wren and Other Stories.

It’s been 10 years since Tiger Woods – then one of the most bankable stars in world sport – crashed into a fire hydrant, and things… Well, went completely to pot.
