  1. ESC 18 is on! :)

    I listened to Jury Box 8 and was amazed at how much the people there try to say that Australia 18 is agood song – the double standards are so obvious – flag voting is so very much alive and kicking.

    • I personally did not understand the incredible hate for Waylon in that podcast. Seemed kinda off imo…

    • I don’t listen to that nonsense anymore. I really enjoyed it some years ago but ever since Sam left the site, it has been a downhill ride. :(

      • I love podcasts so I’ll listen to ESCInsight/ESCPullse/ESCTips even if I disagree with their opinions. Really, only ESC Tips among them is a good analyzer of songs and their chances to qualify or win.

        • ESC Tips have the best podcasts, atm, I agree. ESC Pulse do a good job as well, even when I do not agree with them.

      • They seem to be full of themselves and come across as rather pretentious sometimes.
