The Earful Tower is an award-winning channel about Paris and France, created by Oliver Gee and 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 300 episodes of the podcast and over 2 million downloads since the launch in 2017.
Who is Oliver Gee?
Oliver moved to Paris as a full-time journalist in 2015, but switched to podcasting in December 2017. He told his full Paris story in 2020 in his first book, Paris On Air, a self-published memoir that went wild on Kickstarter and had top reviews from readers all over the world.
Who is Lina Nordin Gee?
Lina is a fashion designer and illustrator from Sweden, who’s also known online as Parisian Postcards. She has been married to Oliver since 2018, and together they co-own the Earful Tower and occasionally co-host the podcast episodes.
The duo has made three children’s books, Grace the Giraffe, Kylie the Crocodile and Roger the Liger, all of which you can find in The Earful Tower’s online shop here. The books are also available in all the English bookshops in Paris… even the Louvre Museum’s gift shop.

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.

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).
To make it nice and easy, here are all the episodes so far.
