    Ep 17 – Eurovision Final!

    Ep 17 – Eurovision Final!

    NB – Contains spoilers! It’s been Eurovision Christmas with the final and here’s our Boxing Day equivalent debrief! What. A. Show. We’ll whizz you through our personal highlights and moments of the four hour epic and who we predicted would win against what actually happened. We chat to Rylan after his turn as representative of the British Jury (and he doesn’t agree with all of their choices), plus Daniel ‘wizard’ Radcliffe shares his Eurovision love and brings us our penultimate lyric of the week. We get reassurance from Jayde about how our Prince is doing (all are agreed he did an amazing performance) and guys, we really need to talk about Madonna.

    Ep16 – It’s Eurovision Eve!

    It’s Eurovision Eve! Someone’s life is about to change forever and no one understands that more than the current reigning champion, Netta. We gave her a call right after her epic performance at Semi-Final 1 and we also have a visit from the Godfather of Eurovision, Graham Norton! And, there’s no denying the fact that they’ve become the brother and sister duo of Eurovision 2019, so Jayde will be chatting to our Prince Michael Rice and giving him some last minute big-sisterly advice ahead of his jury performance tonight.

    Ep13 - Euphoria

    Ep13 - Euphoria

    We are talking to the woman responsible for possibly the greatest Eurovision song of all time, 2012’s Eurovision Champion - Loreen! We also have the host of Radio 1’s Drag Queens' Den podcast and Eurovision superfan Glyn Fussell in the studio with us! His music video dropped last week and Jayde is absolutely obsessed with it, so this week we are putting The UK’s very own Michael Rice 'Under the Spotlight.' And at the end of the show just to top all of this Eurovision goodness off, we will be hearing from the absolute Godfather of Eurovision, the man who will be reading any ill-thought-out outfits and staging choices to filth on Saturday 18th May, Graham Norton is reading our Eurovision Lyric of the Week!

Customer Reviews

UK Eurovision Fan ,

Alright, but needs a bit more focus

I really appreciate Scott’s insight. I know that Eurovision is an opportunity to have fun, but I think both, but more so Jade, needs to read the room a bit more - some of the comments on other national acts border on bullying. You did talk about why other countries might not like us; perhaps they would if you treated them with a bit more respect.

Tim Stirling ,

Poor effort

As a Eurovision fan, this podcast feels very insincere and uninformed. A very shallow attempt compared to ESC Insight which is the far superior Eurovision podcast.

Fantastic podcast for super fans and newbies alike

I love this podcast. It’s such a warm, funny show which is informative without being too confusing for anyone just coming into the world of Eurovision. Superb guests throughout and Scott and Jayde are great together!
