    As an half deaf person, who sometimes has difficulties understanding what people say in a podcast, this was one of the clearest spoken podcast I have listened to in a long time.

    The songs chosen were not your “usual suspects” bunch of songs, which was refreshing in itself.

    Different people have different taste, but Spain 1983 🤦

    This was a pleasure to listen to, great choices from Ann. To hear Spain 1983 and Germany 1996 in the same podcast was terrific. If anyone who isn’t a fan of Eurovision listened to this podcast they would clearly hear the diversity of our beloved contest.
