Franco-American Pathways (Chemins Franco-Américains), a Podcast Celebrating Franco-American Stories in Maine

Franco-American Pathways Logo

The Franco-American Collection at the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College is proud to present Franco-American Pathways (Chemins Franco-Américains), a podcast dedicated to celebrating the history and culture of the Franco-Americans of Maine. We will work from written and audiovisual documents housed at the Franco-American Collection to explore Franco-American culture, history, and identity.  


Tune in on the last Thursday of every month to join hosts Julia Rhinelander, Anna Faherty, and Maureen Perry for new stories and conversations. Be sure to follow us on social media, all linked on our website, and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.


As the show evolves, we hope to connect with bilingual members of the Franco-American community to help us realize our dream of having every episode available entirely in French as well as English, especially French as it is spoken by Francos and Canadian-Americans. Please reach out to us (, if you would like to help make this dream of creating a truly bilingual podcast a reality.



Merci, et très bonne écoute !
