Let’s start with the basics: The Earful Tower is a show that sees me trying to figure out France, usually with the help of a special guest.
The podcast has 30,000 downloads a month with a new episode each Monday. If you add in the videos and the website, it’s over 100,000 hits a month.
Who am I?
I’m Oliver Gee, an Australian in Paris, and I host the show. That’s me up in the video below, which has had millions of hits.
I used to be a full-time journalist in Paris, but switched to podcasting in December 2017. I moved to Paris back in early 2015. You can find me on Twitter here.
What is The Earful Tower?
Basically it’s a talk show for your ears. The guests are everyone from tour guides to TV presenters, cooks to comedians, mayors to ambassadors. Here’s the full list of episodes so far.
What’s a podcast?
It’s like a radio show that you can play whenever you want. If you like the sound of all this, then I recommend you subscribe to the show on iTunes, meaning you get each new episode straight on your phone as soon as it’s published. Here’s a full guide to how to do it.
