Niall Breslin is also bringing his Where Is My Mind podcast on tour later this year.
Mental health advocate and frontman of The Blizzards Niall Breslin has been nominated for Best Daily Podcast in the British Podcast Awards 2021, for his mindfulness podcast series, Wake Up, Wind Down.
Chosen by over 100 respected independent judges, Wake Up, Wind Down is nominated alongside The Guardian's Today in Focus, The Times' Stories Of Our Times, The Economist's The Intelligence, Broccoli Productions' Anthems, and Fun Kids' The Santa Daily.
Breslin's podcast has charted at No.1 in the UK Spotify charts as the top Health and Wellbeing podcast, No.1 in the US Health and Fitness Spotify podcast charts, and in the Top 10 US Spotify podcast charts overall.
Wake Up, Wind Down is the sister podcast to Breslin's award-winning Where Is My Mind series – which is started with the aim of exploring how we can better look after our heads and hearts in the chaos of the modern world. In October, he's set to bring Where Is My Mind on a live tour of Ireland, with shows at the Lime Tree Theatre, Limerick (October 1), the Olympia Theatre, Dublin (Oct 2), and the Town Hall, Galway (Oct 3).
Where Is My Mind covers a diverse ground in terms of subject matter and interviewees – with guests including Dan Harris, Mike Ryan, Taoiseach Michael Martin, Jameela Jamil, Prof Andrew Hubermann, Dr Chris Ryan, Ruby Wax, Prof Luke O’Neill, and Sharon Salzberg.
Where Is My Mind charts regularly in UK and Ireland top 10, and won a coveted British Podcast Award, taking home the gold medal for Creative Podcast of the Year.
“For the live shows I’m getting to combine my two favourite things which is podcasting and performing and being live on stage and connecting with a live audience," Breslin says of the upcoming tour. "The show will be a mix of interviews and big stories, and we will take a deep dive into the little piece of meat between our ears to see how we can better take care of it in the head-melty chaos of the modern world. There’ll be psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness and also we’ll look at how culture influences our heads. We’ll also have performances, spoken word, music, you name it. Ultimately, it will be an incredibly entertaining and insightful show. Through monologue, music, and conversations with exciting guests, the unvarnished truth of the human condition will be revealed in an entertaining but meaningful way. This is a journey into the real thing.”
