'glowing' is the definition.
(I know that phosphorescence is a type of fluorescence)

'two soups claiming small screen broadcast critique' is the wordplay.
'two soups' becomes 'pho pho' (pho is a type of Vietnamese soup).
'claiming' indicates putting letters inside.
'small' becomes 's' (abbreviation - e.g. clothes size).
'broadcast' indicates an anagram (letters scattered or cast around).
'critique' becomes 'ce' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'phopho' going around 's' is 'phospho'.
'screen' with letters rearranged gives 'rescen'.

'extremely' acts as a link.
This may not be correct. It may belong to another bit of the clue.
