13 Upcoming Podcasts From Spotify France, Including the Country's First Video Podcast


The fall season has arrived and at Spotify France, that means one thing: podcasts. Between this September and last, podcast listenership and consumption have both doubled in France, and the nationwide enthusiasm shows no signs of slowing. To help meet the growing appetite for audio entertainment, French creators have been hard at work in the studio developing more unique shows to love.

Listeners can say bonjour to 13 new releases in the coming months that run the gamut from history storytelling to wellness to investigative journalism. That includes more episodes of fan favorite La Poudre, a fresh concept from beloved Coming Out hosts Elise Goldfarb and Julia Layani, and a new show from former basketball star Tony Parker. Plus, Spotify France is launching its first video podcast (or vodcast), featuring influencers Bilal Hassani, Sulivan Gwed, Sundy Jules, Johann (aka SparkDise), and Wesley Krid. There's also a historical fiction podcast that reckons with France's colonial past and much more.

Here's a look at the full slate of French-language podcasts debuting this fall through early next year, sorted into themes so you can easily find whatever you're looking for.

DEBATING La Poudre, returning with Season 6 this October

The journalist, author, and cofounder of the production studio Nouvelles coutes, Lauren Bastide, has become one of the leading voices on the French podcast scene and of France's continuing feminism movement. Now, she joins Spotify France Studios as a creative partner to launch a rich and multifaceted collaboration. Her podcast, La Poudre, will now be available exclusively on Spotify, with a new season where she will interview artists, activists, and political figures.

This collaboration with Spotify is a great pride and a big shift for me, Lauren told For the Record. When I launched La Poudre in 2016, I had no idea how big the show would get or how much the podcast world would evolve. By creating Season 6 with Spotify, I want to lead the way to new business models, new ways of making media, and of consuming it. The Spotify interface won me over as a listener. I'm also proud to be one of Spotify's first creative partners in France, and I'm looking forward to many exciting projects in the future with the goal of continuing to broadcast and defend women's freedom of thought, which will always remain at the heart of my work as a journalist.

Meurice Recruiting (Meurice Recrute), premiering this November

In a parallel universe, humorist Guillaume Meurice is running for president in 2022. To find his future minister of economy (and environment, sexuality, etc.), the freshly elected president of the French Republic must interview members of his ideal government. You can follow along as a fly on the wall as Guillaume speaks with academics, politicians, artists, and activists. Each humorous conversation along Guillaume's fictional presidency campaign gives the host and his guests a chance to share their positive visions of society, propose alternatives to today's challenges, and stir things up.

This podcast comes from a desire to discuss issues that are not the same as those tirelessly repeated in political speeches, in the company of personalities who bring new ideas without stopping us from having fun, Guillaume said.

LEARNING Oyez Oh Yeah, returning September 23

Oyez Oh Yeah is a history podcast like you've never heard before! Hosts historian Manon Bril and comedian Alex Ramir s bring humor to history as they revisit the past. Each episode, Manon and Alex interview experts about a specific time period or historical fact. Their offbeat approach makes academic knowledge accessible and interesting to all.

COMING TOGETHER Brazza Report (Le Rapport Brazza), premiering this October

This podcast walks the line between documentary and fiction and focuses on an essential but taboo part of France's collective memory: colonization. The show focuses on a fictional character named Johan, a young Franco-Gabonese man in search of his missing mother in 1930 who discovers the real and highly confidential Brazza Report. Its contents will change his life. The explosive document, written 20 years earlier by the explorer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, denounces the ravages of colonization in equatorial Africa. Brazza Report features actor Ga l Kamilindi of the Com die Fran aise and Beninese singer-songwriter and activist Ang lique Kidjo, as well as exclusive insights from author Lilian Thuram.

Sauce Alg rienne, premiering early 2022

Family silences, unreadable clues, and questions about identity-39% of young French people have an enduring and complicated connection to colonization and the Algerian War. When podcast host Paul, a doctoral student in sociology, learns this by chance one day, he becomes curious to understand whether the new generation can redefine the way France lives its relationship with its Algerian memory. And so, he sets out to meet five young people whose history has been marked in one way or another by this common past. Sauce Alg rienne is a documentary that lifts the veil on a fundamental social issue and marks the point where the personal and the political merge.

EXCHANGING Tony Parker, premiering this November

He is the greatest French basketball player in history, a U.S. sports legend, a recognized businessman, and now a podcast host. Tony Parker, one of the most respected Frenchmen in the world and a model of success for several generations, welcomes athletes, artists, and leaders to join him in the recording studio. Together, Tony and his guests give listeners a front-row seat to their unfiltered conversations about success, commitment, and the common values that help them stay grounded.

Elise & Julia, premiering early 2022

After concluding their successful podcast Coming Out, hosts Elise Goldfarb and
