Podcast: Francophonie

By Jonn Elledge

Stephanie’s been to Paris, and I’ve been to Montreal, so this week we’re chatting French-speaking cities.

Where does the Parisian Metro stand in the pantheon of underground railways? Why does the whole of Paris smell of wee? Which country is Montreal actually in? All these and more questions are answered within.

(Also, a genuine question which we discuss: Which is the largest French speaking city in the world? It isn’t Paris.)

Then we ask the audience what weird phenomenon or tradition were they most surprised by when they moved to a new city.

And painfully, inevitably, we discuss the UK’s looming general election.

The episode itself is below. You can subscribe to the podcast on AcastiTunes, or RSS. Enjoy.
