It’s time to travel again! We’re back to Europe with a country I’ve actually had the joy of visiting! Let’s do some France Trivia this week. Home to wild history, beautiful culture, and some of the best food on the planet, we just had to drop by and visit France this season.
So, uncork some wine. Grab a crepe. And let’s dive in, shall we?
When you’re all done with France Trivia, please take a moment to shoot us some feedback using the super-short, patent-pending, two-question survey located below.
We could also use your help with reviews on iTunes, Podchaser, and any other podcast directories you might use. Spread the love! Join us on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Reddit.
