This week's guest came through a chance encounter. I found myself talking with a man called Diederick from the Netherlands outside the Peloton Cafe. It turned out he owned a shop full of silk flowers around the corner on Rue de Turenne … so I went to visit to understand more.

This episode covers Paris through the eyes of this Dutchman, the evolving bicycle culture within the city, and of course, everything floral.
