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.
