History Defeats Itself

Join along as three guys that fell asleep during history class bring you a comedy podcast about their quest for meaning. Each episode we dive into a single topic that will range from the mundane to the fascinating. Only one of us does the research leaving the other two in the dark to learn along with you, the listener. In every episode we will trace the origin, discuss the present day impact, and attempt to forecast the future, all in an effort to determine if our subject has been a success or if it’s another example of how History Defeats Itself.
