Your favourite podcast is back for a fourth season. We’re back from the holidays and so is France. But getting up from the pool and back to school will come with some novelties for the country’s students. The typical French rentrée is not looking sunny for President Macron. He has had a rough summer and his approval ratings have hit a record low.

We also discuss the hip hop brawl that took Booba and Kaaris, two of France’s most famous rappers, to court this week. And don’t forget to listen to our selection of So French Music, on Spotify. Click here for our playlist.

President Emmanuel Macron went on a trip to China, and brought a curious present for his host Xi Jiping.

More on the ongoing #metoo discussion, but this week the controversy was caused by women, who disagree with the movement against sexual harassment.
We mentioned this article in The New Yorker: Why Did Catherine Deneuve and Other Prominent Frenchwomen Denounce #MeToo?

Refugees were dominating the headlines in 2015, but they’re back again. At least on the French political agenda.

We also talk about some spectacular heists, one of which is really stinky.

Of course, Maud Descamps is with us for a brand new word of the week! And don’t forget to check out our Spotify Playlist. We added a couple of songs by France Gall, who passed away this week.
