We made a children’s book

    We've made a children's book! We are so proud to finally announce the launch of Kylie The Crocodile in Paris. A project we've been working on behind the scenes for months, Lina did all the illustrations, and I wrote the words. And it's a tale I'm sure you will all recognize!

    To pre-order a copy and back the project check out our Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/3o3TBUy There you can find everything you need to know about the story, how to order a copy, and even how you can get your name in the book!

    This week I have friend of the podcast, and world famous author Cara Black back in studio.

    We talked Hitler in Paris and Cara's new book. Inspired by a mysterious footnote, Cara went down a rabbit hole of dates, times and events - leading her to write Three Hours In Paris.

    Last week, I pitched a question to the Earful Tower Members; What is the first thing you will do once you can get back to Paris? The response was huge and we've used our favourite answers to determine exactly why people love Paris so much.

Ultimate podcast for Francophiles

This is THE podcast to learn about aspects of the French culture you may have never stopped to think about. Oliver’s appreciation and childlike curiosity for all things French makes every show original and utterly charming. He tracks down experts and expats to interview and enlighten listeners as to what it means to be French. Lighthearted and fun, Oliver’s mission is clear: Give French culture to the people!

Loving the Earful Tower !

I cannot get enough of this podcast, it just keeps getting better and better! Oliver Gee is a natural on the air - his self-depricating and light-hearted take on Paris life is a delight to listen to, not to mention his carefully curated range of guests and topics. Highly recommend to Parisians and past or future visitors. For my part, it makes my otherwise pénible RER journey to work go by in a flash! Keep it up, Oliver and bring on next Monday!
