A Cabaret of Conversations with Panti Bliss


#Pantisocracy – Panti Bliss hosts a cabaret of conversations with, and about, contemporary Ireland on RTÉ Radio 1


In this series the Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss invites a diverse gathering of intriguing, high profile and articulate guests into her parlour to chat about their life’s journey and share stories. From singers to scientists, athletes to actors, writers to rebels – all are citizens of the Pantisocracy where Panti herself holds court in a wry and incisive programme combining talk, song and performance. A cabaret for the times we live in. Pantisocracy is a society of equals.
