Revolutions - The Broken Regime by Mike Duncan
History podcasting superstar Mike Duncan has now turned his attention to one of the most significant events in world history. He is tackling the French Revolution. In this episode he brings his characteristic clarity to the state of the Ancien Regime just prior to the revolution. You can't help wondering if the people of the time could have had such a clear explanation of what the problem was they might have come up with a slightly better solution. Had that been the case we'd have been worse off now, because we wouldn't have this rather marvellous series to listen to.
