Episode Summary

Entente Cordiale?

Episode Notes

For a thousand years, England and France have been sparring, fighting and generally knock lumps from each other.  Indeed, most of our greatest memorials – from Blenheim Palace to Trafalgar Square – were erected in honour of our triumphs over the ancient enemy.  We try to get along, but all too often diplomacy and soothing words fail to patch over our deep-routed differences.  Our podcast explores this most fraught of subjects.

So it Goes
