French love, Star Trek dubs, and made-up Churchill quotes

For all the Americans who love to hate France, there are also plenty who simply adore all things French.  One of them, GI Alan Cope, loved France and the French language so much that he stayed in France after end of World War Two. He lived there for the rest of his life.  Anne Ishii also put in some time in France, and used her prowess with the language to date a succession of French men. You do what you have to do.

Also in this podcast, how the original stars of Star Trek  sounded in several European languages. Plus, the German predilection for making up quotes and attributing them to Winston Churchill.
