    47: L'Amour / On Love with Stefania Rousselle

    Given the troubled nature of this beginning to 2020, I thought it would be a nice idea to start the year by talking about love. L’amour and its multitudes. Specifically, I wanted to talk about "Amour: How the French Talk about Love", the new book by Stefania Rousselle, an award-winning French-American photo journalist and filmmaker whose work has been featured in the New York Times, The guardian, Le Monde and many other outlets. A collection of photographs and essays with 90 strangers across France, her book attempts to uncover the universality of love.

    46: Season 3 Finale/2019 Wrap-Up with NPR journalist Jake Cigainero

    46: Season 3 Finale/2019 Wrap-Up with NPR journalist Jake Cigainero

    Closing out the third season and the year with a look back on some of the major stories that dominated the newsfeed throughout 2019 in Paris , from the Notre Dame fire to Mayor Hidalgo's war on cars and the pension reform strikes that, at the time of publishing this, have continued for four weeks. I’m joined by my friend Jake Cigainero, a fellow journalist and contributor to NPR.

    NOTE: This episode was recorded on December 4th, the day before the start of the pension reform strikes. We hypothesized how disruptive the strikes would but it ended up becoming far worse than we expected.

    45: On Race & Identity with Thomas Chatterton Williams

    45: On Race & Identity with Thomas Chatterton Williams

    What does it mean to be a citizen of a given place? How do our origins, beliefs, and race compose our identities? Should they be part of understanding our senses of self at all? This is arguably one of the prevailing issues of our time but one that looks very different in the United States and France. It’s also one of the abiding questions explored by Thomas Chatterton Williams, a cultural critic and author based in Paris, in almost all of his work. His newest book: "Self-Portrait in Black-and-White: Unlearning Race", presents an argument for moving beyond such superficial ways of labeling and categorizing ourselves and proposes alternatives for considering who we are as people. He joins me to talk about his book and how the thorny topic of race plays out in his two homes.

    44: Uncovering the Success of Holybelly

    44: Uncovering the Success of Holybelly

    Six years ago, I entered a new café that was aiming to do something that, at the time, was unique: to bring together good food AND excellent coffee. I had eagerly anticipated it’s opening and was sure it would become my regular hangout. But very quickly, word got out that this place called Hollybelly was doing more than delivering a new-to-Paris experience. It was combining Anglo-Saxon style service, an atmosphere that was dynamic and welcoming, and transparency around every decision, from the contractor who worked on the interior to the sourcing of ingredients. Lines snaked around the block and soon, this 10th arrondissement café was the place to eat and drink -- and I could only go infrequently. Six years and a second location and several renovations later, Holybelly still draws crowds. To talk about their singular success, approach to business, and communication style are the owners Nicolas Alary and Sarah Mouchot, featured in my book "The New Paris".

    43: On state violence, antiracist movements & discrimination

    43: On state violence, antiracist movements & discrimination

    It’s been nearly a year since the start of the gilets jaunes or yellow vest movement and when I think back on the moments that will forever remain ingrained in my mind, it’s those of intense violence. Violence not only at the hands of the anarchists who latched on to the social demonstrations but violence against protestors at the hands of the police. Police brutality and excessive use of force isn’t only a topic of great controversy and discussion in the United States, it’s also an issue of great concern in France. But suspicion among citizens with regard to the police (and the state at large) didn’t begin with the yellow vest movement. Joining me to talk about this issue is Aida Alami, a journalist based between Morocco and France who covers social justice, immigration, religion and politics for the New York Times, and is at work on a documentary on anti racist activists and state violence.
