The Eurowhat is a Eurovision Song Contest podcast featuring a pair of Americans analyzing the annual competition. From the start of national selection season in January through the Grand Final in May, we keep up with what is happening with the participating countries and the songs they have entered. In the off-season, we examine Eurovision’s 65+ year history and find the overlaps with American culture while exploring the evolution of fandom. Episodes drop Tuesdays wherever you get your podcasts!
