THE WGM

The WGM is a podcast all about creativity. We showcase emerging and established Irish talent from all disciplines. We feature performances and chat from comedians, writers, filmmakers, journalists and artists.

The show is hosted by Shane Langan (a writer-performer with comedy group Diet of Worms, who along with Graham Linehan created the BBC TWO show The Walshes) & Níal Conlan (musician with Choice Music Prize winners Delorentos) and is produced by Ailish Bracken (Queen of Ireland & Irish Pictorial Weekly).
