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

This week we start off a series of special podcasts on the history of France's contributions to science. We start at the end of the Dark Ages and wrap up this week with advances to the end of the French Revolution. We also have a Cocktail Party Slapdown examining French contributions to the art of war.
