Three Percent #38: Beautiful Song Is on the Radio, Is in the TV Shows
This week’s podcast is a special Eurovision edition featuring resident Eurovision expert, Kaija Straumanis. We go through a bunch of the videos/songs participating in this year’s competition and make fun of almost everything while also trying to come to understand why Eurovision is so compelling in its bizarreness. To follow along with our comments, I highly recommend watching the videos below as you listen to the podcast—it will greatly enhance your listening experience.
And for more info on what Eurovision is and how it works, check out the posts by our other resident Eurovision expert Janis Stirna.
