The Land of Desire: French History and Culture

By Diana Stegall

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


French history is wacky, wonderful - and seriously weird. If the only thing you know about French history is that you hated reading A Tale of Two Cities in high school, pour yourself a glass of pinot noir and get ready for a wild ride. Learn about the time France ran out of cows - and figured out how to eat zebras. Learn about the eccentric national hero keeping bees on top of the Louvre. Learn about the revolution which fought for brotherhood, equality, and a national holiday for marshmallows! New episodes every few weeks! /// Featured on iTunes Buzzed About, CBC/Radio-Canada, Bello Collective, and The Audit.

Customer Reviews

Great podcast!

Really well done, only wish each episode was longer and had even more details! The recent Dumas series was particularly great I can't believe I didn't know all that. Been a great podcast to listen to before our planned trip to France this spring.

Charming and Informative

I downloaded this podcast in preparation for my upcoming trip to Paris and I find it absolutely charming and very informative. I have been binging it ever since I downloaded it!


this podcast is interesting although telling me very little that i don't know already. however the background music is so obtrusive i cannot listen to it again.
