In a country like France, where tradition reigns supreme, even a suggestion of change or newness has long been met with scepticism by locals. This is no longer the case, offers writer and adopted Parisian Lindsey Tramuta in The New Paris podcast, a side dish to her new book, out April 2017. Here with co-host Alice Cavanagh and an assortment of other local experts, she takes a closer look at the people, places and ideas that are changing the fabric of the storied French capital.

Stick with the book
I love her Instagram account and I look forward to buying the book, but the few podcast episodes I've listened to I think are an example of a podcast that never needed to be made - Lindsay and her co-interviewer trip over each other and answer for guests. Sorry to say but it's painful compared to all the other amazing interview podcasts out there.
This podcast definitely has interesting content, I like the subjects and the interviewees, but the two hosts aren't very good as interviewers imo. They can come off as a bit condescending and arrogant. At one point they cut off an interviewee and asked, "you know why it's called that right?" I understand she asked that so that it could segue into an explanation for the listeners, but there's a much better way of transitioning to explicate. There's also a weird tone of dismissiveness in the hosts reaction to the responses that the people they're interviewing give. I also feel that it lacks structure, which I'm only made aware of by the hosts' abrupt way of interviewing, like they're trying to reign in the conversation back to a more linear narrative because chunks of info is being blurted out. Overall, I find the subjects fascinating and will continue to listen, despite the things I previously mentioned.
As a person who lived in France, Lindsey and Alice do a great unveiling the side of Paris that many American voyer it’s never look beyond. It is an incredible place, but has so much to offer beyond the well-known historical sites. Their guests are engaging while the discussion feels like a conversation over drinks amongst friends. Always looking forward to the new episode.
