I collaborated with famed Australian Journalist, Latika Bourke, and French correspondent in London, Tristan de Bourbon Parme, to discuss what the hell led us to these Legislative elections

With the first round of the 2024 Legislative Elections taking place today across France, I wanted to share with you all a great podcast that I did with the incredible Latika Bourke and Tristan de Bourbon Parme.

In it, we have discussed what led us to our current situation, covering everything from the popularity of Emmanuel Macron, what exactly has pushed so much support to the RN, why people will likely vote the way they will, and how this could affect France in the future.

Let us know what you think, tell us if you want more like this, and let’s see how this election plays out
