The Panti Personals: S1 E4 Jane Willow
The Panti Personals: Jane Willow
Panti Bliss is with a gorgeous young Dutch woman, singer and songwriter Jane Willow in this episode of The Panti Personals. But of course Jane's real name is Janneke van Nijnanten and much like our Queen, Panti Bliss and her homeboy Rory O'Neill, she loves the freedom a stage persona and name gives to her. There's a weird Glen Hansard theme going on in The Panti Personals as we heard how Galia Arad was inspired to come to Ireland by a Glen gig, and our Janneke took off to Dublin after hearing Glen talking about the glories of street busking as a musician in Dublin. Janneke went back to busking, more parks than streets, during lockdown, just to find an audience and have the joy of the singing in public again. In this episode she shares her story of coming here from her home town in the Netherlands, Breda which of course Panti thinks is a great name for a drag queen, Heavy Breda!
During the show Janneke pops into her Jane Willow identity and performs twice for the Queen, a beautiful cover of Nick Cave's 'Into My Arms' and her own lovely song 'Let There Be Light', a suitable anthem for the times we're in.
In this episode you also hear Jane singing her poignant cover of Leonard Cohen song, Chelsea Hotel. Here's her lockdown video of it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRESTppQB4M
The Panti Personals gets closer to being a 'personals' column with Panti putting the call out for a gorgeous ginger haired guy for Jane ( she has a thing for red-heads!).

The Panti Personals : S1 E2 Galia Arad
The Panti Personals : S1 E2
Panti Bliss meets Galia Arad. (released May 14)
Galia Arad describes herself as 'Bob Dylan meets Britney Spears' and if that doesn't make you want to listen to this episode of The Panti Personals, whatever will? Galia hails from Bloomington, Indiana, but this singer-songwriter with a comic punch, has made Dublin her home. When she's asked by taxi drivers what fella brought her to Dublin? Galia smiles and says 'Glen Hansard' but in truth it's as much Shane MacGowan's work, as Glen's. But then you'll have to listen to the podcast to find out why!
Galia's comic work is often with the gleeful Lollipops but her new release, 'Lion's Den' is a classic break-up song, a powerful pop ballad you can just imagine Britney covering. Galia's 'Britney crush' often means she includes a Britney cover in her gigs and her very dark and mysterious cover of 'Baby One More Time' made it to screen in a Marvel TV series 'Cloak & Dagger'.
In this episode of The Panti Personals Panti Bliss finds a new soulmate in fellow podcaster Galia Arad, who she decides is 'a gas bitch' and ideal company for the habitual lockdown season. Galia, who has toured with Jools Holland, performs her latest release 'Lion's Den' and a song inspired by possibly her most embarrassing moment, when Elvis Costello emailed her to hook up for a gig.
Music in this episode includes:
Galia & The Lollipops : What a Time
Galia's cover of Brittney Spears 'Baby One More Time'
Galia Arad's Lion's Den - accompanied by Cian Boylan
Galia Arad and the Elvis Costello Song

The Panti Personals : S1 E1 'Bressie' Niall Breslin
The Panti Personals - Season 1 Episode 1
Panti Bliss meets Bressie' Niall Breslin (released May 1 2021)
*trigger warning. This conversation touches on mental health, and references child abuse and suicide.
Panti Bliss is breaking out of lockdown and shaping a new podcast, a child of Pantisocracy, The Panti Personals, where she gets up close (two metres anyway) and personal with someone, for an intimate conversation and a private performance.
Her first guest is a man of more hats than Philip Treacy. It's the handsome beast, mindfulness and music man, Niall Breslin, 'Bressie' of the Blizzards. This time Niall is Blizzardsless and performs two of his new spoken words pieces, 'Teen Spirit', which was first performed for this year's St Patrick's Day Festival, and inspired by the death of his teenage hero Kurt Cobain, and a brand new piece 'Closing Time', a tribute to the saving grace of Tom Waits, with Cian Boylan on piano. Niall is co-founder of the mental health advocacy group 'A Lust for Life' and he hosts two podcasts, 'Where Is My Mind?' and one focussed on mindfulness 'Wake Up/Wind Down'. In this powerful and revealing conversation Panti and Bressie talk love, life, anxiety and resilience, and swap stories on how physical and sexual abuse, witnessed during their school years, has stayed with them, and haunted them.
