    S3: Ep 3 Becoming a French Jamaican Jerk Duck

    What does that even mean? No, I am not talking about becoming a French citizen. In this episode, I discuss how I've come to the conclusion that the best way to experience life in Paris and lead a happy and successful expat life here is to create my own kind of Frenchness.

    S3: Ep 1 Dinner for One en français with Nathalie Bonnet

    I'm back after an extended break. To kick off this season I decided to do things a bit differently by recording the entire episode in French! My good friend Nathalie joined me as we had a chat and shared a few giggles over a very Parisian apéro dinatoire.  The rest of the season will continue in English with sprinkles and dashes of French thrown in here and there, as usual. ;)
