Subscriber Podcast #19 – The Politics of Eurovision

Published May 20th 2018 | Tags: , , , ,

For decades the Eurovision Song Contest has been a platform for projecting soft power and engaging in cultural warfare.  In this month’s subscriber-only podcast I look at how Eurovision entries have been used for propaganda and have been subject to political censorship. I discuss this year’s winning entry – which purports to be an anthem of female empowerment – as well as the possible coded message in Hungary’s song.
