Has everything original been done?

It’s a question that’s been asked about storytelling, music, fine art, movies, and so much more.

This hour, we attempt to answer that question and discover if everything has already been done.

Along the way, we explore the idea of originality and our tolerance for novelty and talk to artists who are reckoning with these questions.
