Nitpicking, yes, but I'm surprised that you would mispronounce such a common word as "séance". An "e" with an acute accent is spoken with a long "a" vowel sound ("ay"). The word is pronounced exactly the same in French as it is in English, although the meaning is different (not having anything to do with contacting the dead).

Great podcast! But you shouldn't be so surprised about the pillows the King had to sit on. The "Lit de Justice" is literally a "bed of justice", with five cushions forming the "lit."
