It’s a very different episode of The Earful Tower this time around.
Meet Eddie Gee, my little brother, who has just been in Paris trying to help me solve a ten-year-old mystery. That’s him above, in front of me, on a Paris balcony in 2008.
In short, we’re tracking down Mary, a woman who saved both of our skins on our first trip to Paris.
Along the way, we see loads of Paris and meet a few interesting characters too. But can we find Mary?
Listen here (and scroll down for some of the pictures from ten years ago and today).
The pictures below are in the same order they’re mentioned in the story.

That’s it. The second last episode of season two. The season finale is all about an even bigger Paris mystery…. there’s something lurking in the Canal Saint-Martin and it’s only The Earful Tower that has the story…. (More info here)
