Difficult to understand

I can understand picking a French person to dictate this but she has a difficult accent to fathom. It would have also been better if a historian was formally talking to us instead of a text being read. There is valid material to be heard which is why I gave it a 2 star but I'd rather read this than having to listen to a thick French accent. This is a podcast after all. Disappointed by the oral performance.
