New SBS podcast launched on 'Why is Australia in Eurovision?'

Today, the new SBS podcast 'Why is Australia in Eurovision?' was launched.

The series is hosted by Mike Jones and Dale Roberts from the Aussievision podcast for SBS Audio.

The three episodes look at how Australia got in, how it stayed and what the future holds.

Guests on the podcast include Associate Professor Jess Carniel from the University of Southern Queensland, Director of Blink TV Paul Clarke plus Eurovision artists Dami Im and Danny Estrin from Voyager.

The first episode out today looks at why Australians love it so much and how lobbying behind the scenes got us onto the Eurovision stage.

Australia was a complete oddity and the fact that we were from the other side of the world was like ‘What are you doing here?’ Paul Clarke, Blink TV
