All of our great listeners! Keep tuning in and don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you have questions or ideas for future topics.

And, one tiny request:

Paris Cocktail Talk is a passion project, which means we do it because it’s interesting to put together an audio show and try and bring you timely, interesting news about the French cocktail scene and related boozy topics.  But, sometimes it can feel like we’re shouting into a void if the listeners aren’t there. So, how do we get more listeners? Apparently, iTunes reviews are a good way to get a podcast in front of other potential listeners. So, if you could please leave a review of this show, it would be greatly appreciated. We’ll read the good, the bad and the ugly on air!
