The Land of Desire is creating French history podcasts

In early 2015, I started searching for the perfect French history podcast and realized it didn't exist - so I decided to make it myself! I worked a desk job with zero creative outlets, and I spent too much time yammering about my favorite subject to friends and family. It took me well over a year to research, write, learn and produce my first episodes. When the show debuted on Bastille Day 2016, I was nervous. Would anybody else be as excited about French history as I was? Would anybody want to listen to what I had to say? Would I ever be able to figure out how to add background music?



One year later, The Land of Desire's tales of French whimsy and weirdness have been downloaded nearly a quarter million times, have been featured on the iTunes Store, the CBC, RadioPublic and elsewhere, and I want to say merci. How? By growing the show! I have big plans for The Land of Desire, but I need your help!

Juggling podcast production with my day job is hard work - it costs money to host my episodes, host my website, and license background music. More importantly, it takes a LOT of time. Subscribing keeps this show sustainable. With your support, I'll be able to continue producing top-quality episodes and offer new perks for those who want to learn more about La Belle France. 

If you can afford to help, please become a subscriber. It's an honor to know so many of you are listening, and I want to thank you by continuing to entertain you in better and more numerous ways than ever before. 

Thank you!
