It’s another Earful Tower podcast episode, this time with Amanda Bankert from the popular Boneshaker Doughnuts.
We recorded this chat in her charming little shop in the very centre of Paris. Oh look, there it is below.
We discussed how Amanda studied pastry and ended up making donuts, how she had to convince Parisians that donuts and pastry aren’t so different after all, and how a lot of expats in Paris have unusual back stories.
In the background you’ll hear customers, Paris traffic, and the occasional chuckle from Amanda’s husband Louis. Look, that’s Amanda below!

The shop: Boneshaker Doughnuts, 77 rue d’Aboukir 75002. And believe me, the donuts are delicious.

This week, Fat Tire Tours sent me on their fantastic sunset river cruise and Eiffel Tower climb. Head over to my Instagram account for some pics and vids from the evening.
Meanwhile, here’s a (member’s only) link to a video stream I did from along the River Seine, chatting with the tour guide and pointing out all you need to see along the way.
Or, here’s the two-minute version of the tour:
