Before the big party in Lisbon next month, we chat about the London Eurovision Party and other pre-festival shindigs. We also finish up talking about the first semi-final, including our hopes and dreams for what we’ll see on stage.
This week we have a mini episode where we remember some of the Eurovision national final entries that won’t be making the trip to Lisbon. We also take a moment to remember Lys Assia, the original ESC chanteuse.
Lindsey Weber from the Who Weekly podcast stops by to chat about how the Olympics are the perfect world event to prep for Eurovision before getting into the songs selected for Malta, Switzerland, the UK, Denmark, and Italy.
This week, Ben and Mike do a deep dive into the United Kingdom’s Eurovision selection process and take a look at why the country has struggled for so long at the Contest. Plus, a roundup of headlines from the last week.
