The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

Dec 24, 2018

It's Christmas in Paris. Well, it's Christmas elsewhere too, but today we're keeping it France-related.

So how do the French celebrate Christmas? And what should you go and see if you find yourself in Paris during the festive season? Where are the best Christmas lights?

All these questions and more are answered in this episode. You'll hear the (slightly croaky) voice of myself, plus Lovely Lina, coming at you from the studio in Sweden (where we're going to celebrate Christmas).

You'll also hear the voice of Fabien the Breton, who's made previous appearances on The Earful Tower, most notably teaching us al how to make galettes in a live video for Patreon supporters during the honeymoon season. 

We also made reference to the 20 consecutive live videos I did around Paris, one for each arrondissement, which you can watch if you subscribe for $10 a month on Patreon here.

We also talked about the scooter video down the Champs-Elysées, which you can find on YouTube on my official channel here (subscribe).


The Earful Tower exists thanks to support from its Patreon members. From $10 a month you can unlock almost endless extras including bonus podcast episodes, live video replays, special event invites, and our annually updated PDF guide to Paris.
