Our culture shall survive.

This is a great way to learn more about the culture I hold so dear to my heart.
Keep it up my friends, keep it up.

Good Guests

I learn a lot with every episode. Keep those great guests coming! Lise Pelletier was particularly interesting. I’m half Québécois and half Acadian. I didn’t know much about that Acadian side until the episode with Lise.

Bingeing on it!

My BFF showed me how to find podcasts and I’d heard so much about this one, I downloaded all episodes at once. The good part? I binged out on them. The bad? I’m not terribly good at waiting for the next episode. The 4 minute teasers are a yummy torture for what’s to come! Can not wait for more episodes! Who knew there were so many cool and interesting people in the Franco community?!
