New to Eurovision? This pod is a great start

Every episode is just the result of their passion for the contest, deep research, and capacity to love every type of Eurovision song, especially the risky entries. It’s worth a try.

Also Ewan’s voice puts me into ethereal zen, or maybe I just don’t hear Scottish people that often and they all sound this good.

Come for the juke box juries...

...stay for Eurovision Castaways. Ewan, Lisa-Jayne, Ellie, and the rest of the team are so great. Insightful commentary and historical analysis.

Easily the best for Eurovision news, reviews, and entertaining depth

ESC Insight is by far the best, most informative, most thoughtful, least gimmicky, and most smartly entertaining podcast for finding out about all things Eurovision. I’ve been listening since 2011 and am hooked. The team is made of up people who care not only about the music and performance aspect of the Eurovision Song Contest, but also want to dig deeper: they analyze what’s going on in the Eurovision universe at various levels, whether cultural, musical, national, emotional, political, social, historical, statistical, or just plain whimsical. From newcomers to Eurovision to longstanding fans, this is the place to get your news and reviews. HIGHLY recommended.
