The Rest Is History

178. French Presidents: 1958-1981

The Rest Is History

It's the day after the French election runoff between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, so naturally here's a Rest Is History French Presidents special.


Charles de Gaulle, Georges Pompidou, and ValΓ©ry Giscard d'Estaing. Join Tom and Dominic for the first of two episodes on the topic, as they dive headfirst into the first three post-war presidents. 


Join us tomorrow for the second part of this special double-bill, where we'll cover the remaining historical residents of the Γ‰lysΓ©e Palace.


If you can't wait until then, sign up to The Rest Is History Club (restishistorypod.com) to hear the next episode right now and also get ad-free listening to the full archive, weekly bonus episodes, live streamed shows and access to an exclusive chatroom community.
