You might have heard the mention at the end of our final podcast from Malmö 2024, but for those who didn’t, that was the 1000th podcast from ESC Insight. It’s a milestone certainly worthy of celebration, but at the end of a long Eurovision season, we wanted to do something a little bit more than “thanks for listening.”

Which brings us to today, and Podcast 1001; a journey down memory lane with Ewan looking back over fourteen years of podcasting the Eurovision Song Contest.

It’s guided by Rob Lilley-Jones from The Eurotrip Podcast in a subtle crossover episode of Eurotrip’s “The Contest And Me” and ESC Insight’s “Chat Over Coffee.” Settle back in for some of our history.

To celebrate ESC Insight’s 1,000th podcast, Ewan Spence invites Rob Lilley-Jones from The Eurotrip Podcast to talk about reaching this podcasting landmark, the history of the ESC Insight podcast, memories of the Song Contest, and some tough questions on favourite songs and moments.

Stay up to date with all the Eurovision discussions through the summer by listening to the ESC Insight podcasts. You’ll find the show in iTunesGoogle Podcasts, and SpotifyA direct RSS feed is available. We also have a regular email newsletter which you can sign up to here.
