The French curse word of choice is more often than not an English one. Listen to this week's edition of The Local podcast as Editor Ben McPartland discusses why the French love to say 'f**k'.
The young and trendy French people aren't afraid to say it, the English-language TV shows (when they're not dubbed) aren't censored, and you can even hear expletive-laden rap songs at McDonald's in Paris (well, we have anyway).
If, like us, you're often left wondering why the French love saying "Fuck" in English, tune into this week's edition of The Local podcast. 
People of a sensitive disposition, you might want to cover you ears because the airwaves are about to turn blue.
