I greatly recommend the following insightful interview (in French) given by Johanna Grothendieck, the daughter of Alexander, to Radio Galaxie, about the recent publication of Récoltes et Semailles by Gallimard:

Grothendieck: la moisson
The podcast of today’s broadcast at France Culture “Grothendieck: la moisson” is already available on the Radio website, which also provides several references for the general public to learn more about toposes and Grothendieck’s vision.
The associated Twitter account can be accessed here.
Thanks again to Nicolas Martin and all the staff of “La méthode Scientifique” for their invitation! I look forward to join you again in a few weeks, always with Alain Connes and Laurent Lafforgue, for the second part of the broadcast.
An update: a transcription of the emission by Denise Chemla is available here.
An interview for France Culture
On Thursday 17 February, from 16 to 17 French time, I will be a guest, together with Alain Connes and Laurent Lafforgue, at the scientific radio broadcast La Méthode Scientifique of France Culture, to talk about Grothendieck and crucial themes addressed in his recently published text Récoltes et Semailles, such as toposes and ethical issues in mathematics.
Looking forward to it!
