History of France in English's Podcast : The History of France in English Episode 8

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 we have more on the history of France with a look at the flood of Kymrians that entered Gaul ahead of a flood and bad weather in the 400s BCE, forcing more movement by the Gauls and an earlier wave of Kymrians. We also have George Washington's first defeat and a look at the early soon to be American revolutionary general in his earliest days as a commander when he loses to French Canadian forces in the backwoods of the frontier, not far from where Pittsburgh is today in western Pennsylvania. Oh and we have a new podcast called Seemed Like A Good Idea and it's about things that seemed like a good idea at the time and it's kinda funny and kinda informative and you can get it on iTunes or on libsyn or on Historylab.ca so give it a try! Merciiiiiiii.
