FROM THIS EPISODE

Stories of people who can't stop replaying a certain moment in history or a certain episode from their lives over and over in their minds. Starlee Kine tells the story of a man more obsessed with reruns than even she is. Sarah Vowell identifies a phenomenon that's sort of a cultural rerun: people - often who aren't black or women or in any way involved with civil rights - comparing themselves to Rosa Parks.
