The Land of Desire

By Diana Stegall

On Going since Jun 2016 • Updated bimonthy

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!
