@maldamkar I’m not sure who’s commentating Eurovision this year. Terry Wogan is gone, of course. Julia Zamiro for SBS, maybe?

@oliyoung Well if I can’t have animated zombies on the ABC website, what CAN I have? [pouts]

@renailemay Oh. I didn’t get an email. Presumably I’m not a “key media contact”. [sulks]
