Stephanie’s been to Paris, and Jonn’s been to Montreal, so this week we’re chatting French-speaking cities. Where does the Parisian Metro stand in the pantheon of underground railways? Why does the whole of Paris smell of wee? Which country is Montreal actually in? All these and more questions are answered within. (Also, a genuine question: which is the largest French speaking city in the world? It isn’t Paris.) Then we ask the audience what weird phenomenon or tradition were they most surprised by when they moved to a new city. And painfully, inevitably, we discuss the UK’s looming general election. Skylines is the podcast from the New Statesman's cities site, CityMetric. It's hosted by Jonn Elledge and Stephanie Boland.
