We often hear the phrase "People who don't study history are doomed to repeat it." It seems like that would be perfect podcast material.
"<This Thing That is Happening> is just like <That Thing That Happened> way back in the year xxxx."
Find a topic, show how it is similar to a past event, then show what happened after said past event. Obviously, there's no way you could avoid politics and such and you would be have to be careful to explain how the current event is different from the past event and what that could mean, but ti seems like that would make a great podcast.
I've heard it put that "History doesn't usually repeat itself, but it often rhymes", which is a little wanky, but it's spot on and I agree that would be an excellent podcast.
