Xavier Yvon: I am going through the editorial staff of L’Express to go to a somewhat special place that I would like you to discover… Here, I see very studious colleagues, absorbed in writing their article. I walk past the headlines of the newspaper, posted on the walls. There have been many: this year, L’Express is celebrating its 70th anniversary. I wanted to come here to prepare a podcast series that retraces this very rich history.

Anne-Marion : Are you ready, Xavier?

Xavier Yvon : We have with us someone who knows the magazine better than anyone. I present to you Anne Marion, who has been a documentalist here for more than 20 years.

Anne-Marion : Hello everyone ! I am delighted to be with you. Come in, Xavier.
