The Earful Tower is an award-winning podcast about Paris and France, hosted by Oliver Gee, and usually featuring special guests who make the City of Lights shine.
“It’s not hard to imagine being transported to Paris while listening,” said The New York Times when it ranked The Earful Tower among the world’s “most transportive” podcasts.
There have been close to 300 episodes and 2 million downloads since the launch in 2017.
Who is Oliver Gee?
Well that’s me! I’m an Australian in Paris, and I host it all.
I used to be a full-time journalist in Paris, but switched to podcasting in December 2017. I moved to Paris in early 2015 and stayed through some very interesting times.
I also teamed up with my wife Lina to make two children’s books, Kylie the Crocodile and Roger the Liger, both of which you can find in my online shop here.
What is The Earful Tower podcast?
It’s a free weekly audio show, typically with a special guest who shares their story over half an hour. These guests include authors, tour guides, TV presenters, cooks and comedians, mayors and ambassadors… There are actors, YouTubers, supermodels… you name it.
All in all, there are over 50,000 people following The Earful Tower.
Hang on, 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, 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 (and it’s even on Spotify).
