The Earful Tower’s 20 Days of Christmas… in 20 Paris arrondissements

There’s a lot to celebrate around here at Earful Tower Headquarters.

It’s almost been two years since episode one. I’m about to move to Montmartre. And it’s almost Christmas.

So how to mark such momentous occasions?

Here’s my idea: Over the next 20 days, starting on Wednesday 27th November, I’m going to do The 20 Days of Christmas Challenge. In other words, a live Walk Show video from the most interesting part of each 20 arrondissements (Paris districts).

I have already done the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th arrondissements, see a few of the intros below.

From here, I will continue each day with new guests all the way to the 20th arrondissement on December 17th. So if you want to walk the streets of Paris live, here’s what you can expect over the next three weeks. Note: The exact locations may change, but not the districts.

As more special guests confirm their appearances, I will update this page with their names and the start times… so bookmark it now!

Now, all these videos will be recorded live so absolutely anything can happen. The vast majority of them will be recorded behind the Patreon paywall, meaning you’ll have to join the other 200 Earful Tower supporters to watch.

The cost of joining the club to watch all the videos is $10 US a month – the “Member Club” – which comes with a few other bonuses including my guide to Paris on sign-up and my new monthly e-magazine – but I’ll put a few of the videos at the $1 level too, so you have no excuse not to join.

Lastly, if you absolutely can’t or won’t join the Patreon supporter club, rest assured that I’ll post short clips from these videos on YouTube, so be sure to subscribe now.

Oh yes, and here’s an idea of a full walk show:

Merry Christmas and thanks for your support!
