Back at the very beginning of 2020 (i.e. a time that may have well have been well over a decade ago), I wrote a list of business goals that I wanted to achieve this year. While some are obviously now out of reach and others I have limited energy and time for, the one thing I wanted to do before June was launch a podcast. Well, it seems like I’ve managed to achieve that 2020 goal with just a few days to spare! So without further ado, introducing the C’est la France podcast…
The show is called the C’est La France Podcast. Now, you might have seen the name ‘C’est la France’ and be wondering just what is this all about? Well, for a while, I was thinking about naming it the same as my blog. However, ultimately, I decided that I wanted to have ‘France’ in the name, and it’s not like my Instagram handle is the same as my blog either!
The first episode is there to serve as a brief introduction to the show and a little bienvenue as it were. As you might imagine from the name of the podcast, this series is going to be all about discovering the beautiful country of France. From uncovering hidden gems across the City of Light to interviews with experts running small businesses and what life in France is truly like, we’ll delve deep into the world of l’Hexagone. All, bien sûr, served with a side of history!
Unlike other podcasts you might have listened to in the past, this isn’t only going to be a series of interviews. Instead, we’ll feature both interview style episodes, as well as quirky soundbite stories, such as remembering when the Mona Lisa was stolen or figuring out whether or not Marie Antoinette really did say ’let them eat cake’
In this first episode, I’ll be discussing some hidden gems of Paris that I missed the most during the lockdown and perhaps you’ll even discover some cool little spots to visit on your next sojourn to the city. Though it’s a little rough around the edges still, I’ll be posting a new episode each Wednesday.
