This question was asked on Quora Digest (here), and here is what I say. When I was in a small town in France with some friends, we went into a tobacconist’s shop because we thought they might have some other things, like gum. Not only did they have gum, but they had a magazine rack, and among the usual low-brow items found on such racks, there was a magazine devoted to philosophy. Incredible. This was a small shop in a small town, and yet you could find a philosophy magazine there.
