My History Can Beat Up Your Politics

We’re all familiar with the idea of history repeating itself over and over again, but most don’t buy into the idea.

Well, this podcast aims to prove that time and events are little more than a flat circle.

Finding fun and entertaining ways to tie today’s political environment into events throughout the past, the energy level of this podcast is absolutely through the roof.

You aren’t going to find a lot of policy wonks or political hacks cluttering up the episodes of this show, just a lot of history and political buffs talking about the past and present in ways most people aren’t right now.

Things are crazy out there, for sure – but they’ve been crazier. The folks at My History Can Beat Up Your Politics are proving that out with every single episode they publish.
