The New York Times Podcast Club

Do French women really not get fat?

In this edition of The New York Times Podcast Club, IRL, join By the Book host and comedian Jolenta Greenberg and her skeptical friend and co-host Kristen Meinzer for a live discussion of their episode “French Women Don’t Get Fat,” in which they lived by Mireille Guiliano’s famous self-help book.

We’ll discuss the ins and outs of how it was made over drinks with The New York Times’ editorial director of audio Samantha Henig.
