Podcast Description:Le grand Jury is a podcast aired on RTL, and presented by Jérôme Chapuis. It is a podcast on French politics broadcasted every Sunday. Each week a political guest answers questions from three reporters: Jérôme Chapuis (Chief of Service RTL), Alexis Brézet (managing editor of Le Figaro newspaper) and Eric Revel (editor at LCI).
The guest can then develop deep explanations and touch many listeners. Indeed, the show is also broadcasted on RTL and LCI at the same time, and recapped the following day in the pages of Le Figaro. The presenter welcomes the guest and tells him about the latest events. After that, the guest is allowed to comment on the news.
Sometimes the debate is difficult to follow because the guests take the debate very seriously and can get mad. Participants have also sometimes difficulties in attempts to reframe the debate or get it back on track.
Summary: It is an interesting political podcast because it welcomes politically famous persons in order to have their opinions on current events and compare the views of different political people.
