  1. Congratulations on making your 90th episode!

    This was such an interesting story. Very well researched and clearly presented to show how important this case was in influencing history. And we see it repeating again!
    I have been to New Caledonia 4 times, and visited the old prisons. Can’t believe they opened up Papillon again just for Dreyfuss as New Cal was too nice!

    I’m off to France again on Tuesday, once all my school reports are written. Very excited, (but not about the long flight- New Caledonia is only 3 hours from Eastern Australia).

    Thanks, Melanie and Cedric, for keeping me entertained and informed with your intriguing podcasts. Hanging out for number 91.

    PS. The lady accused of the mushroom poisoning in a nearby town is awaiting trial- changed with 3 counts of murder and 5 of attempted murder. Can’t believe there were people poisoned in your house!
