Throughout Eurovision season (December-ish through May) our weekly episodes check in on the news, recap selection shows from around Europe, and review the entries as they are selected. As the Contest draws closer, we re-examine the songs as competitors. It's sports, but with pop music, spreadsheets, and Google Translate. During the off-season, we dive into topics directly and tangentially related to the history of the Contest. Topics have included: drag queens, the movie The Apple, flags, the Iceland Airwaves festival, intersectionality, the origins of telecommunications technology... did I mention we're a bit nerdy? Episodes drop Tuesdays on your favorite podcast provider.
