The best ESC podcast bar none

Love this podcast. Ewan and the team are knowledgeable and fun. The daily shows on the ground make you feel like you’re there with them and Juke Box Jury never fails to entertain, with a great range of guests. In-depth interviews with heads of delegations are also great insights.

Almost the best

Not my absolute favorite Eurovision podcast but ESC is great for keeping up to date with all the latest news, especially during national finals season. Slightly more serious than Aussievision or Wiwibloggs but still essential listening.
