Like Oliver. Love Lina, who has a smiling voice. Love Paris and enjoy the podcast. Good series on each arrondissement. One critique (with love): Admittedly the 13th isn’t pretty or that tourist-friendly (e.g., I wouldn’t expect false recommendations that tourists go and spend tons of time there),...Read full review »

My husband and I visit Paris for the first time this year. Listening The Earful Tower has been so fun and helpful in preparing for our trip. Thanks Oliver and Lene!

Whether you live in Paris, want to visit, or just want a healthy dose of escapism in these uncertain times-listen to this podcast. Oliver transports you there. His familiar and down to earth personality acts as a brilliant vehicle for the city and cast of characters within.
Escapism at its best via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/22
Oliver finds the most wonderful people with the most interesting stories and showcases them on the Earful Tower. From super models, to antique dealers, to writers, to tour guides, to chefs, to fishermen, to old ladies sitting by the Canal St. Martin, you’ll get a real feel for the city and at...Read full review »

I’ve enjoyed this podcast for about 3 years. I feel like we would be friends. Oliver & Lina have a wonderful way of being casual yet very informative. I was in Paris during high school, many many years ago, and appreciate this podcast very much. I hope to go back one day soon. ...Read full review »

I look forward to listening to Oliver and Lina talk about Paris and other places in France. They don’t take themselves so seriously and I feel like I’m having a chat with fun friends! Well done! ❤️

I have listened for about 3 years now, and still look forward to every episode. I am an American who is fascinated by the rich history, art, and personality of Paris and in Oliver I find a kindred curious spirit. He asks the questions i might be embarrassed to ask, but had on my mind! He has a...Read full review »

Love listening to this podcast as Oliver has guests that bring their unique stories and perspectives on France. One of the best discoveries of these is Corey Frye - French Frye in Paris (who has great content on YouTube). Since I’ve been listening, I decided to support the project on Patreon and...Read full review »

I have long been in love with France and even spent a semester abroad in the Loire Valley. I babysat many a French baby in the United States (military pilots training here) and find the whole culture exciting and interesting. Your podcast has started me day dreaming about the time when I can...Read full review »

As an American, I find it insulting that the host often refers to Americans from a biased POV. He defines all Americans as uncultured, loud, and rude. That’s not true at all! The host fails to address the diversity in American tourists. Makes you want to unfollow this guy ASAP.
fidinyc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/21
What a great podcast! One of my favourite aspects of it is that there’s plenty of variety. Sometimes the tone is more serious, other times very funny. Oliver Gee and his guests discuss a broad range of topics including art, food, language, French culture and tourist attractions, and they record...Read full review »

Oliver’s podcast is very interesting and entertaining! All about Paris and family life. Love listening during my lockdown walks in Sydney.

Can you gain a greater love for Paris from an Australian and a Swede? Mais bien sûr. Oliver Gee (the Australian) and his “lovely bride” form the perfect combination. If you don’t believe so, just check out their book. A master story teller and an awesome illustrator. This podcast gives you a...Read full review »

Nothing more to say. Listen to it and take your time in Paris. ❤️ Thanks for your time, Oliver!
Gerhard Schmidtke via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/31/21
Oliver’s latest podcast would have to be one of my favourites! I enjoy them all but last Monday’s podcast where he walked around the streets and interacted with people and places made me feel as if I was there in person - seeing everything Oliver was describing and listening to the Paris sounds -...Read full review »

Love this podcast. A wonderful balance of humour, facts, and conversation. If you are at all interested in Paris, this is the podcast for you.

Oliver takes us on a virtual pilgrimage through my favorite city. I’ve made two attempts to travel to Paris in the last 18 months. Both were cancelled due to the pandemic. (I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s my 76-year-old father’s bucket list to see the French open. Third time’s the charm...Read full review »

I have similar stories as Oliver does about my experiences learning all things french starting in my mid 20s. I love the way Oliver tells these all-too-relatable stories. Sadly, I have yet to be able to live in France, but having learned the language, this podcast highlights many of the things...Read full review »

If like me you never miss an episode of Oliver Gee’s transporting podcast, The Earful Tower, you’ve read and loved his book, Paris On Air, and just like me and his grandma you can actually hear his voice as you read it, then you might wonder why you need ‘Paris On Air: The Audio Experience’....Read full review »

The first 7 chapters have been wonderful to listen to as I have driven my family from Phoenix, up through Utah, and into Colorado and back this week. Everyone loves to read during our car trips, which leads to a completely silent car, not so great when you’re the driver. I’ve been enjoying the...Read full review »
steis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/21
I discovered this podcast this past year while in lockdown, when I could only dream about traveling. Every week, Oliver takes me to the city of lights where he explores Paris, and occasionally other places in France. Most recently, he has been sharing his memoir and I am loving every minute of...Read full review »

The Paris on Air audio experience has been so delightful to listen too. I am planning my first trip to Paris later this month and have been so grateful for Oliver’s insights.

Want to know what it’s like to zip around Paris on a classic red scooter? Or how about out-run a rainstorm in the south of France? If finding hidden ancient walls around a city is more your thing, there is some of that too! From the hilarious and genius mind of a fantastic host that can pull a...Read full review »

I wasn’t into podcasts until 2020 so I consider this a benefit of COVID. The Earful Tower is my absolute favourite podcast. Oliver and his team deliver wonderful entertainment every week. It’s fun and full of interesting and quirky information. Even if I can’t physically be in Paris right now,...Read full review »

The audio experience of Oliver‘s book titled Paris on air has been great fun to listen to. We read the book when it first came out – even got our names in it somehow – but listening to it while driving home from Florida last weekend was highly entertaining. So, while we await the return of the...Read full review »

The Earful Tower is a great example of a podcast that transports you to another world with each episode. It’s great if you’re a Francophile, and especially into Paris, but it’s also a great choice if you just want to hear interesting stories and interviews with people from all types of background...Read full review »

I used to be able enjoy this show... it brought me hope and fantasy to France... until in the newest episode the host used the word “exotic” to describe the picture of an English teacher teaching in South Korean kindergarten classroom. I find it very offensive to describe Asian countries/ppl as...Read full review »

One of my go to podcasts! I love Oliver’s curiosity, enthusiasm, humor, and willingness to take risks that I might not - like climbing on Paris rooftops and sneaking into courtyards. His book, Paris On Air, was similarly entertaining a ash’s informative. Finally, as a Francophile who daydreams...Read full review »

Oliver is smart and charming and brings a fresh perspective on all things French and interesting. As delightful to the ear buds as a fresh Parisian croissant is to the taste buds!

It is a beautiful show! I am learning so much about Paris and find so many things that I‘ve seen there on my visits and bring back memories. I recommend it to all people who love Paris and France. And Oliver never seems to loose his good mood and is always encouraging.

I came across this podcast while getting ready for a trip to Paris in May 2020, and we all know how that turned out. I’ve so enjoyed listening to each episode as we can travel vicariously through this. He is eternally upbeat, and makes me smile or laugh out loud during each Episode! Brings...Read full review »

Longtime listener and loved your comparison of the big fish to Shaq! Only a basketball player would use this comparison. Great program and can’t wait to see the secret garden in bloom! You always leave us wanting more!

By far my favourite podcast - an amazing way to experience Paris from afar while it is sadly the only option. Oliver is warm, funny, genuine and interesting
nykkie18 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/14/21
I love this podcast- it uplifts you and allows you to be ‘in’ Paris, without actually being there. The mix of guests is great and I especially love the episodes with the sounds of Paris in the background!

I've been listening to The Earful Tower for almost two years now and finally (sorry it took so long Oliver!) got around to actually providing a review.

Absolutely adore this podcast. Oliver is great and has some wonderful content. You really feel like you are involved in the Paris scene without actually being there. Highly recommended!

I’m fashionably late to the party, but from the moment I discovered the Earful Tower a year ago, I have looked forward to (at least) a weekly virtual tour of a familiar or (even better) a new corner of Paris.

Excellent podcast. I’ve been enjoying the Earful Tower with Oliver Gee since the beginning of 2020 and have enjoyed Oliver’s great knowledge of Paris and his Australian wit.
