Intermediate level fun

Our charming hosts, Mark and Pierre-Benoît, tell us at the outset that this story is going to be at an advanced level of French. It’s not, really. Intermediate students can probably follow most of it, and there’s a summary in English in case you miss anything. The story is entertaining, and so are the hosts. They’re using the podcast to promote their online course, but it’s worth a listen even on its own.
