Excellent! You almost got me worried there. Thanks for the episode!


I can't wait for the colony to turn into a full blown rebellion.

January 1st is also Haitian Independence Day.


Last week someone asked about the Emilien Petit book you mentioned in the podcast ("American Patriotism").
It's free (though not easy) to read it in French at the link below, and you can see his other books too on that site. But I can't seem to find much info about him or any translations of his works... http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k5460955p.r=Le%20patriotisme%20am%C3%A9ricain

This is the French national library's site and of course you can also find there a fascinating array of things to do with the French revolution. For example this poster depicting the defeat of the Conspiracy of Equals: http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b8412593b/f1.item.r=babeuf.zoom


Am I the only one getting a crazy 'Back to the Future II' vibe from all this? It's like, all the greatest hits from the French Revolution, only seen from off to the side. Fascinating, fascinating stuff.

I'm really enjoying this revolution for two reasons: it's the first one covered that I knew essentially nothing about, and I feel (like Jeremy above) that there's a wonderful synergy between these episodes and the French revolution episodes. Just when you think this podcast can't get any better, it does!


Vincent Ogé's last name is pronounced with a soft g as in Genet, not 'Oh-gay.'
