The flower man by the Place des Vosges
This week's guest came through chance encounter. I found myself talking with a man called Diederick from the Netherlands outside the Peloton Cafe. It turned out he owned a shop full of silk flowers around the corner on Rue de Turenne … so I went to visit..
This episode covers Paris through the eyes of a Dutchman, the evolving bicycle culture within the city, and of course, everything floral.

When the Seine River floods
When the Seine River is flooding in Paris, you can almost certainly find me somewhere along the riverbank watching. I find it extraordinarily fascinating.
And it's so close to flooding now that I figured I'd make an episode about it all - including some fun and interesting facts about the Great Flood of 1910.
