Eurovision 2016 – Audio: Letters from Stockholm

During my trip to Eurovision this year, I made a series of podcasts for ESC Insight. For those interested in how they were made, each unscripted episode was recorded in one take, edited in an hour, and mixed in two. Many thanks to the ESC Insight Team for the platform – they’ve been a joy to make.

I’ve collated the links to all of them below, each will take you off to the ESC Insight website – there’s an embedded player on each page.
