Extra Pack of Peanuts Podcast 345: France Via A Little Red Scooter w/ Oliver Gee

Oliver Gee, a former Australian journalist, can teach you fake french in 1:07 seconds, give you the most amazing insights into local life in Paris, and he just completed an 8-week, 2500 mile trip around France on a little red scooter, going 30 miles per hour (max) with his new wife on the back and somehow found the time to join us on today’s episode. He is the man behind TheEarfulTower.com, The Earful Tower Podcast, and he makes tons of videos all highlighting the beauty and mysteries of Paris while constantly striving to discover more about his adopted hometown.
