Essential Listening!

This year was my first Eurovision song contest and honestly without these guys I would’ve showed up to the party so uninformed. You all helped me seem like I know what I was doing in front of my European friends! And because of that I had a blast watching your vision and I look forward to listening to your podcast for years to come as well as watching Eurovision every year! Jah jah ding dong on!

Great Eurovision podcast!!!

I am an Spanish eurofan leaving in Las Vegas. I’ve been following Eurovisión since I was 10 years old. My first Eurovisión memory is Jerusalem 1979. I listen to several Eurovision podcast (in English and in Spanish) and this is one of the best.

Just mad I didn't find this sooner, because you guys are essential listening.
Enjoy the final!
And KEiiNO RULES! Go Norway!
