Eurovision is political (but not how you think)

Episode 52,  Mar 28, 2021, 01:23 PM

Eurovision is back this year after being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. You're probably thinking, "Eurovision's all political, and the UK is going to get punished because of Brexit," but is that true? I'm joined by Eurovision fans Drifa Arnadottir in Iceland and Kamilla Safiyllina in Russia. We discussed how this year's contest contains multiple political controversies - about nationalism, feminism, LGBT rights and even Satanism - but funnily enough, not about Brexit. During the episode we mentioned a documentary about Israeli peace activists by the Icelandic band Hatari. If you want to check out the documentary you can find it here:
