E37: Let Friends Eat Cake

Check out the latest episode of Best Forevers, focusing on Marie Antoinette and her friends, here.

 Friends are so inspiring. They inspire you to be bold, to keep on keeping on, and to try new things. In this week’s episode, Alysa is joined by her history-loving friend, Crystal, who inspired her to start covering historical friendships on Best Forevers! The first “friendship from the past” story centers on the infamous Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, and her ride or die friends, Princesse de Lamballe and Duchess de Polignac and perhaps suggests that friend influence is not always helpful or positive! So, come hear the story (and the commentary) about the legendary Queen who loved her friends dearly, but who’s extravagant and careless lifestyle inspired a revolution.
