Feast your ears on Paris

I’m fashionably late to the party, but from the moment I discovered the Earful Tower a year ago, I have looked forward to (at least) a weekly virtual tour of a familiar or (even better) a new corner of Paris. Oliver is a charming walking companion and his guests are entertaining and informative.

I long for the day when the world is “normal” once again and I can return to Paris. In the meantime, the Earful Tower podcast, along with accompanying scrolls and videos for Patreon members, Oliver’s Paris on Air book and audio experience, Lina’s beautiful illustrations, their lovely children’s book, Kylie the Crocodile in Paris, and those weekly pub quizzes during the lockdown (OK, I’ll brag for a moment — I was the winner of the very first quiz!) have satisfied my Paris cravings.

Personality plus and loads of information

The Earful Tower has been such an uplifting respite in this tumultuous world. I listen to Oliver on my walks and they immediately transport me back to my blissful days of wandering the streets of Paris. I’m lucky enough to have had the opportunity to travel to Paris quite a few times in the past and until that is once again possible I will listen to this wonderful podcast. Through its detailed notes I have been able to connect with other podcasts and book suggestions about Paris and France. Speaking of books...I am waiting in eagerness to receive my copies of the children’s book Oliver and his incredibly artistic wife, Lina have written. Just a hint- it includes a crocodile. Thanks, Oliver for bringing so much joy to so many people.

P.S. Tell Eddie he’s doing a fabulous job on the scrolls for Patreon members!
