Episode 39 – Taxes

Pieter Breughel the Younger: English: Paying the Tax (The Tax Collector) 

Death and Taxes. Is that all we can be sure of? In honor of traditional Tax Day (April 15), we present a history of taxes in the United States. Tariffs, excises, income taxes, anti-government movements, rebellions, paying for the military and infrastructure, they’re all on the list of topics we cover in this week’s episode.
