Tommy Tiernan's show has gotten a huge response since the second series started at the start of January.

His unique form of new-presenting (AKA not knowing who the feck is going to come on) plus the brilliant guests that he has had, add up to make a fantastic formula.

On Wednesday night, he had Rubberbandits' Blindboy Boatclub on who impressed a lot of people online after sharing his own 'conspiracy theory' around mental health. 

Speaking to Tommy, Blindboy said: "Unfortunately, the best mental health services in the country are charities like Pieta House.

"That shouldn't be the case, you should be able to go to your GP and they should be able to go 'see a counsellor, that's on your medical card' and there's no six month waiting list. 

"That's the service that should exist and then from the ages of three on up, kids should be taught basic and emotional psychological tools. 

"This is boarding into conspiracy theory. If you think of a bar of soap. When was the last time you saw an ad for a bar of soap and they're actually telling you how clean it will get you?

"They don't. What they'll do is show you photos of beautiful people. So when you buy this soap, they are trying to sell you a better version of yourself. That only works in a population that's not emotionally aware.

"When someone becomes emotionally aware of how they are feeling, then they start buying soap because of how clean it gets them. They won't be sold this ideal version of themselves because they are grounded to know, 'that soap isn't going to make me a better person'.

"That's conspiracy theories though, that's just me smoking too many joints."

You can watch the full interview with Blindboy here and the conspiracy theory talk starts around the 5 minute mark.
