74 épisodes

From one Emily in Paris to another... just speaking French isn't enough to understand the intricacies of the locals, but it's definitely a good place to start. Famously defended by armed "immortals" of the Académie Française (no, we're not making this up) the French language is filled with clues that show interested outsiders what, exactly, makes the French tick.

Each episode, listen in as Emily Monaco and an expert take a deep dive into a word that helps us gain a keener understanding of the French.

    Ep 73 - Navigating “Républicain” with Emile Chabal

    Républicain is a false friend, especially for Americans, but not for the reasons you might think. To explore how and why this term’s meaning varies so widely from France to the U.S., Emily is welcoming Emile Chabal, a historian of twentieth century European and intellectual life and author of France, a book that delves into the paradoxes that define this country.

    Ep 72 - Navigating “Gourmet” with Diane Rovner

    France is synonymous with its food culture, but with a rise in foodies in the U.S., how does France's food culture stand out? Here to discuss the French attitude towards food from a cultural standpoint is Diane Rovner, a former food magazine editor, food tour guide, and founder of Bordeaux in Bites. She's here to help us navigate the word gourmet.

    Ep 71 -Navigating “Populaire” with Debra Ollivier

    If you grew up worrying the world was a popularity contest, get yourself to France, where the word populaire is better translated as "working class" or literally, "of the people." Without an apt translation for "popular," French society governs itself by different principles, which author Debra Ollivier is more than ready to unpack.

    Ep 70 -Navigating “Brûlée” with Marie DeGross

    When we hear the word "brûlée" in English, we're likely thinking about the sweet, shattery topping of a classic French dessert. But when Notre Dame suddenly caught fire in 2019, a whole other meaning of this word came into focus. Marie DeGross is a tour guide specialized as much in pastry as she is in the history of the military and first responders in France. She's here to explore what makes the Paris Fire Brigade stand out on a national – and international – stage.

    Ep 69 - Navigating “Je Ne Sais Quoi” with Debra Ollivier

    Je ne sais quoi is a phrase American women love to use to describe their French counterparts, but according to Debra Ollivier, best-selling author of What French Women Know About Love, Sex, and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind, the French don't use it at all. She's here to talk about why – and what this means about the French approach to popularity, likeability, and identity.

Fantastic perspectives on France and the French!

This is a wonderful and insightful podcast! I’ve enjoyed each episode, in-depth explorations of the the French language and how certain words reflect its culture and behaviors. Bravo Emily!

Kate Kemp-Griffin ,

Fascinating linguistic journey!

Emily goes beyond the dictionary definition and translation to reveal the nuanced undertones of the French language. With humour and insight she tells the story of a word in a way that will add texture and layers to your comprehension.
