The Podcast about Victor Hugo's Les Misérables. In each episode, I will comment on a section of the book, to make it a bit less daunting, and hopefully help you enjoy it a bit more. I am a professor, but this podcast is created with a non-academic, non-expert, non-French-speaking audience in mind--that is, anyone who'd like to dive into this classic!

Great analysis

Les Mis has been so important to me for so long, and this podcast does a deep dive to help me understand all the bits I didn't quite get. The analysis here is eye-opening and I appreciate all the work that goes into making it.

Makes a difficult text accessible

Les Mis is an awesome and important and timeless work, but I never would have dared crack it open were it not for this helpful guidance.

Sometimes an episode would confirm my reading of a particular section. Which delighted me. Sometimes an episode helped illuminate a tough section that I only half understood, or less. That’s helped to propel me on, since I was able to garner the important meaning and not feeling lost and frustrated.

Good vocal delivery combined with deep knowledge of the material makes this is a must-download for fans, or would be fans, of the book.
