A Cabaret of Conversations with Panti Bliss


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


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.

Pantisocracy with Panti Bliss won the Digital category in the Headline Ireland Mental Health Media Awards for Season 5 Episode 2 ‘Breaking Secrets and Silence’. It previously won the Celtic Media Festival Torc Award for Best Radio show (2018) and it’s once again short-listed for that category in the Celtic Media Festival, September 2021 for its episode on race, being black and Irish ‘Skin Deep‘ in Season 5.



The Panti Personals is a child of Pantisocracy but this time it’s up close (well two metres apart!) and personal as Panti Bliss escapes lockdown for an intimate heart to heart conversation with her guest, just one each episode, and a unique performance for an audience with the Queen (well you can listen in too, and even see the videos if you like).
In the first season of The Panti Personals Panti spent time with performers and singers, first up was Bressie of the Blizzards, so listen out for some remarkable performances.

The Panti Personals podcast is now back for Season 2 and in this second episode of a new season Panti Bliss is with Brían and Diarmuid MacGlionn, otherwise known as Ye Vagabonds, the multi-award winning harmonising brothers who hail from Co Carlow but whose music, songs and story are dipped in the waters of their mother’s homeland, Arranmore Island in Co Donegal. Ye Vagabonds picked up best band at this year’s RTÉ Irish Folk Awards as well as best folk track for their version of ‘I’m A Rover’ and with Panti Bliss they share the roots of their music and how the Cobblestone Pub in Smithfield, (which is now under threat), played such a part in their evolution as performers.
