Bringing Paris to you

I recently found this podcast while listening to The Simple Sophisticate, Oliver was a guest on the podcast. I popped over to the Earful Tower and am so happy that I did! I have been loving hearing all about the different arrondissements in Paris as I binge the podcast. Oliver takes us outside the studio and all around Paris, makes you feel like your almost there. His wife Lina has popped in on a few episodes and she seems absolutely lovely, some of my favorite episodes are the ones they do together!

Amazing

Found Oliver thru Paris Perfect Rentals. His voice is soothing, the details he goes into when setting the stage for the episode is great. The Versailles episode is one of my favorite. Also follow him on IG and bought his book which is funny and interesting.

Almost as Good...

I am 71 and scheduled for my first trip to Paris the week that France went into lockdown. I was in a horrible funk, and a friend recommended The Earful Tower to me. Not as good as being there , I’m sure, but I’ve so enjoyed listening, learning, and hoping and planning for whenever COVID-19 goes away.
