S1, Ep. 6. Old Regime France and its Jetons

The sixth episode of The Planchet features an interview with Dr. Jim McClellan, Professor Emeritus of Stevens Institute of Technology, where from 1977 he taught the history of science. McClellan is also a serious student of tokens, namely the jetons of Old Regime (pre-1789) France, and what these tell us about pre-Revolution French history that cannot be gleaned easily from written accounts.
