First Thought Podcast

Welcome to First Thought, a new podcast from GIAF where we invite you to discover new perspectives, people, and more with conversations on creativity and the issues of the day.

In our introductory episode, Festival CEO John Crumlish and Artistic Director, Paul Fahy give you a flavour of what to expect. Based on the Festival's popular First Thought Talks discussion platform, episodes currently available include a selection of talks presented at recent festivals, with plans for new content to be added.

As part of our Autumn Edition programme, we'll be adding new episodes from music-themed conversations as part of the Vinyl Hours series with Julie Feeney, David Brophy and Liz Nugent where they'll discuss the music that has influenced their lives and what it stirs within them. Our Autumn Edition First Thought Talks programme will also be available on the podcast in October.

Listen below, on iTunes, Spotify, the Apple podcasts app or wherever you get your podcasts.
