The Panti Monologues

The Panti Monologues are an iconic part of Pantisocracy. Panti Bliss opens each episode of the show with her own spoken word performance, a personal viewpoint on life, often funny, sometimes deeply moving. We’ve created a playlist for The Panti Monologues and it’s available in Apple Podcasts and has its own RSS feed so you can take this short audio channel with you. But if you want to see how gorgeous Panti looks we’ve also, because we’re like that, created a video channel of her performances.
 
The show goes out on national radio on RTÉ Radio 1 so to celebrate it RTÉ asked us to choose some of our favourite monologues from the archives to create a series of five digital video shorts for the RTÉ Player. And here’s how they look.
