May 8, 2017

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes," according to Mark Twain, perhaps the most most-quoted writers and humorists in American literary history.

And we also learn the history of that concept and quote. Listen in, Buzzkillers and see how far back the idea goes! neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
