Mark's Almanac for July 28, 2020

On this date in 1945, a B-25 Bomber slammed into one of New York's most iconic buildings. And on this date in 2016, a human fossil was found in South Africa that shed some light on the state of cancer.

Editor's note: Today's edition of Mark's Almanac originally contained audio from a period newsreel which included a derogatory and offensive term for Japanese people. That section of audio has been removed from this episode. WKSU regrets the inclusion of this audio clip and apologizes for its use.
