History of France in English's Podcast : The History of France in English Episode 38

The History of France in English is a weekly podcast. Oddly enough, it's about the history of France and in the English language. Every week there is a larger piece on the history of France and a shorter, cocktail party slapdown that offers a bit of history that runs counter to the usual stereotyping of character the world attributes to this great country.

The Podcasts

Episode 38 is an overview of Gaul as the Gauls were before and after Roman rule. We look at how they dressed and looked, their art and culture and the impact of Rome on the Gauls and on the Romans as a result of the Gauls.

And of course, we have a Cocktail Party Slapdown with a shoutout to Zack Twalmey because hey, we're covering a battle from the 30 Years War. The Battle of Lens was the last major battle in the war. France won, of course.
