Hosted by OZY's Sean Braswell, 'Flashback' probes the dynamics of unintended consequences and explores the reasons some of the best laid plans in human history have gone askew in domains from policymaking to our personal lives, from the workplace to the environment to the courtroom. Examples include 'How the YMCA Helped Launch the Tobacco Black Market'; 'How Henry Ford Inspired the Oklahoma City Bombing'; and 'How Air Conditioning Changed the Landscape of American Politics.'

"Flashback is the newest in a series of podcast collaborations with iHeartMedia that explore vastly different topics," said OZY CEO Carlos Watson. "Taking on history is the perfect job for Sean Braswell as the quirky professor making sense of the many unforeseen twists and turns in the study of past events."
