Podcast Description: Service public is a podcast presented by Guillaume Erner.
Every day, one main topic is discussed. Regularly, experts, businesses, consumer associations are invited to give their opinions or participate in debates. The concept of the show was expanded in August 2011 to address topics that are not directly related to consumers, but are related to the daily lives of French people and major social issues.
Almost every day, a section airs on a subject that may be different from the main subject, but still usually related to consumers. Sample topics include power, internet service providers, mobile operators, banking services … Experts give us concrete figures on the subject such as an expert from INSEE who bring information about the topic of the day. The aim of this podcast is to inform the consumer, but also to protect, help and support their interests.
Summary: This show is interesting because it makes a connection between current events and issues related to the daily lives of French people. This podcast should give listeners to have answers to the most common questions.
