Raúl Rojas and Cody Sisco are hot and thirsty for so many Eurovision hunks, including Måns Zelmerlöw, Amir Haddad, Tom Leeb, John Lundvik, Gábor Alfréd Fehérvári aka Freddie, Sergey Lazarev, Nicky Byrne, Eric Saade, and many more. We couldn’t stop ourselves. Listen to find out who took the most points.
In Thirsty for Eurovision, Raúl Rojas and Cody Sisco share their love (and obsession) with the Eurovision Song Contest, a showcase for music, queerness, and theatricality. They are thirsty and passionate about the performers, fans, creators, and major players.
The first three podcast episodes are a comprehensive introduction to the competition, including recent winners, thirst for hunks, fabulous divas, and the politics of inclusion and geography.
The fourth episode dives deep into Melodifestivalen, the Swedish competition that decides who goes on to compete for the country and that serves as a gateway and bellwether for many Eurovision fans.
Forthcoming episodes will rove across the landscape to highlight performers competing in May in Turin, Italy for the title of Eurovision Winner 2022.
