Featured: iTunes "Buzzed About", 2016. A Top 20 History Podcast on iTunes. Selected by Bello Collective for "100 Outstanding Audio Stories of 2016." Featured: The Audit - "Far and Wide". - Ahh, France! This year, one percent of the people on Earth will actually pack their bags and visit France. Meanwhile, those of us who aren't so lucky will have eaten a croissant, admired a little black dress, drunk a good bottle of wine, and rewatched Amélie on Netflix yet again. This is where I come in: I’m Diana, a huge history nerd who spends too much time reading about the weird, wacky and wonderful history of France, who wants to share its greatest stories with you! We’re talking about a country that ran out of cows and figured out how to eat zebras. We’re talking about a country which snuck its greatest national treasure away from the Nazis in the back of an ambulance. We’re talking about a country whose great revolution fought for brotherhood, equality, and a national holiday for marshmallows. Join us every two weeks for a new episode!

Charming and informative

Such a well-done, fun, beautifully produced podcast! The music is great and makes you feel like you're listening to a radio drama. Engrossing and funny. If you like Hardcore History or You Must Remember This, check it out.

Amazing history podcast

Loved the first episode! I've studied French history, but I've never heard this take on Bastille Day. Super interesting and well recorded! Thanks!

Goodbye Roadrage, hello Paris

This podcast is amazing! Diana's voice is extremely comforting even through the most road-rage filled commutes and the history ended up going way beyond what I expected and into very surprising places. It was well researched and fun, and she totally nailed it with the music.
