About The Napoleon 101 Podcast

Who was Napoleon Bonaparte? Why have more books been written about this man than anyone else in history apart from perhaps Jesus Christ? And why are so many people around the world fascinated with his story? Was he a tyrant? Was he, as Chateaubriand said, “mightiest breath of life which ever animated human clay”?

This podcast intends to provide two opinions on those questions while stepping you through the life of this very complex and divisive man.

“THE NAPOLEON BONAPARTE PODCAST” is a structured educational podcast lasting over 60 hour-long episodes, each covering a particular period of Napoleon’s life and career.
