Phileas #25 – Eurovision Love

I love The Phileas Club podcast. Patrick Beja from France and Turki from Saudi Arabia gather people from all parts of the world to discuss the news from their unique perspectives. It’s an excellent way to check your prejudices and get exposed to viewpoints you won’t find anywhere else.

This episode was extra-special for me because I got to be on with my old BOL co-host MOlly Wood. It’s our first podcast appearance since I left CNET. And it was a blast. We talked about the issues with the Euro, the Eurovision singing contest, the World Cup and what it means to South Africa, and more.
