Oh la la la la, it’s going to be a busy week or two here, and I want you guys to be ready for it all.
Here’s what’s on the cards, in order of appearance:
Friday 30th March: Live Walk Show with Géraldine Lepere from the hit YouTube channel Comme Une Francaise. We’ll be wandering around the 12th arrondissement, including the beautiful Rue Cremiuex (below). PS: That’s her on the right, above.
To watch it live: Become a “Flaneur member” on Patreon ($10 a month), then tune in on the private Facebook group at Midday, Paris time, on Friday.
Monday March 2nd: New podcast episode – The hidden bars in Paris (with cocktail queen Forest Collins from 52 Martinis). So where are all these speakeasies, then? Clue: That’s one below!
To hear it: Just subscribe on iTunes (or wherever you get your podcasts) and it will be there for you on Monday.
Monday April 2nd: Live Walk Show with Paris guru Lindsey Tramuta. Exciting times, friend of the show Lindsey is going to be joining me for a live video walk around Paris. Where? You’ll find out on Easter Monday!
To watch it: Become a “Flaneur member” on Patreon ($10 a month), then tune in on the private Facebook group at 6pm, Paris time, on Easter Monday.
Tuesday April 3rd: Podcast interview with Kathryn Kemp-Griffin, author of Paris Undressed – a new book all about lingerie. I’ve asked her to do a Live Walk Show afterwards, let’s see what happens.
Dani? Oh, we’ve known each other for about 5 minutes but it feels like we’ve been friends for years… she is the owner of @my_lingerie_by_provoke and the reason I am in Bulgaria. This dynamo read Paris Undressed and invited me to Sofia for a four-day blitz about life, love, and lingerie. Wait until you see what she’s lined up! Interviews and fashion school appearances culminating in a magical author event @my_lingerie_by_provoke on Thursday! Merci @danisandberg ! @parisundressed #parisundressed @allenandunwin @houseofanansi
To hear it: Just subscribe on iTunes (or wherever you get your podcasts) and it will be there for you next Monday (April 9th).
Wednesday April 18th: LIVE SHOW with Adrian Leeds. This should be a fun one, I’ll be discussing the topic of Why Paris with property expert Adrian Leeds in front of a live audience. There she is below – she was on the podcast earlier in March.
The woman with the keys to every Paris apartment. Well, not actually at all. But she’s the empress of Paris real estate – @adrianleedsgroup – and you’re gonna be hearing from her soon on The Earful Tower. And she knows Paris very well indeed. Behind the scenes chat with her on Patreon now! #theearfultower
To get a ticket: Email me to reserve a spot, it’s at Cafe Mericourt from 7pm, April 18th. Tickets are €10 and there are limited seats. Many are already reserved, so don’t delay! Hope to see you there.
To watch the streamed interview online: Become a “Friend of the show” on Patreon ($5 a month), then tune in on the private Facebook group at 7pm, Paris time, for the live streaming of the show.
Further into the future, I’ve got a chat and a Walk Show planned for early May with crime author Cara Black – don’t miss that either! More info very soon!
If you’ve got questions or ideas for any of the guests above, don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments below. If you’ve ever considered becoming a crowdfunding member of the audience, but wanted to wait until the time is right, now is the time to do it.
Otherwise, hang around for the 60-second versions of the things mentioned above, which I will add later to the new YouTube channel (subscribe now).
Lastly, the $10 Flaneur level on Patreon is quite new. If you’ve never heard about it before, or if you’ve signed up at a different tier, a few clicks is all it takes to switch groups. And if you’re scratching your head at the idea of a Walk Show, I’ve explained it here.
See you soon – and thanks to all for listening, watching, supporting and reviewing!
