    Hellloooo, ESC Insight team!

    Following from America here.

    The Video Insight posts are a great addition! I get to listen to the audio podcast during breakfast, and then have this as an extra supplement to my lunch break. 🙂 The format is perfect for that.

    Kudos to Sam for her interviews, too!

  2. Thanks, Derwood! Always great to know that there are more Americans hovering around the ESC world… 😉
