Episode notes

In this week's show we bring listeners up to date with some of the biggest news and talking points in France including President Emmanuel Macron's state visit to the United States.

We look at the ups and downs in Franco-American relations over the years and find out why Macron is far from happy with his US counterpart Joe Biden.

We also find out a little bit more about the thousands of American citizens who have made home in France.

We learn about one of France's most influential women in history and why her name is back in the news this week.

Plus we head to one particular part of France that's very different to the rest of the country, not least because it has its own public holidays and Christmas traditions.

And the ballot for Paris 2024 Olympics tickets opens on Thursday. We give you all the info and tips on how you can get your hands on some.

As always I'll be joined by The Local France's editor Emma Pearson, journalist Gen Mansfield, French language expert Camille Chevalier Kharfis and special guest Jim Bittermann from CNN.
