Wellerman singer and TikTok sea shanty star Nathan Evans will talk about his speedy rise to fame, which resulted in him leaving his job and landing a record deal in one week.

Shane Carthy was a Dublin football prodigy and a highly-skilled midfielder who was called up by Jim Gavin to become a member of the senior team at the age of 18.

Since his 5th year in school, Shane had been battling with his mental health and experiencing suicidal thoughts. The footballer will speak to Tubridy about how he got through deeply troubling days. 

Music on the show comes from Niamh Regan, the RTÉ Choice Music Prize nominee from Galway.
