Triangles! AirBnB selfies! France Francing!

We break down the entries in Czech Republic’s Eurovision selection and talk triangles. Lots of triangles.

After we triangulate our opinions on the triangle-inspired logo for this year’s competition, we also chat about the expected ticket sales date (hint: it’s the end of this month). We do go on a bit of a tangent about a possible name change for the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, but we’re waiting on Greece to cosine that.

For our main topic, we go through the eight entries up for consideration in the Czech Republic’s online selection. Although the AirBnB video concept left a lot to be desired, there may be some contenders to build on the momentum “Lie to Me” brought to Lisbon last year. We check in on France’s Destination Eurovision semi-final before planning our TV schedule for the weekend.
