Eurovision Podcasts

And … let the Eurovision Song Contest begin!

12:09 PM GMT+1 on May 7, 2023

There are a number of podcasts that will be dropping daily episodes from Liverpool this week, with fan sites  The Euro Trip and Wiwibloggs reacting to the rehearsals and live shows. The BBC’s Eurovisioncast will also be keeping a close eye on proceedings.

The Official Eurovision Song Contest Podcast are naturally not able to favour one act over another, but they are able to secure great interviews. A recent episode featured a special conversation between ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl (he’s the man who says “you’re good to go” during the points section.) In this episode they talked about the dominance of Swedish pop music, ABBA’s historic win in 1974 and how the contest has evolved over the last few years.

Oh, and you weren’t asking, but my tips of who to look out for in the contest: Austria’s Teya and Selena, Finland’s Käärijä and of course, Sweden’s Loreen.
