History of France in English's Podcast

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

The first episode of the History of France in English features a piece on the history of wine in France, starting about 600 BCE and takes us through the Roman period. There is also a cocktail party slapdown for those of French heritage when challenged by some stereotypical babble on cheese-eating surrender monkeys. Offer this piece of French Naval history with a victory over the mighty British Royal Navy during the American Revolution.
