History of France in English's Podcast : The History of France in English Episode 6

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

This week, The History of France in English takes a look at the first mentions of proto-French or Gaulish peoples with a look at the Ligurians. We also have our Cocktail Party Slapdown with the story of the Saumur Calvary School Cadet defence against 10,000 German soldiers. And a shoutout.

And cake and bacon for those that want it.

  • Good podcast for someone like me who lives in France as an English speaker and trying to make France , a new home. Haven't listened to all the episodes yet but in episodes 5 & 6 , you take pride in being a passionate meat-eater and in episode 6 you even try to reward your listeners with bacon. Just curios, why do you think eating animals can be a reward for the humankind ? Why trying to promote carnivorous lifestyle where most of the progressive nations are constantly talking of eating healthy ?
