It's become pretty trendy, re-litigating the headline controversies of the late '90s and early 2000s. Netflix's "The Crown" recently revisited the royal English intrigue of Prince Charles and Princess Diana; ESPN's "The Last Dance" told the behind-the-scenes story of the other most famous dynasty of the time, the Michael Jordan-era Chicago Bulls.

Slate's "Slow Burn" podcast has re-examined the Bill Clinton impeachment trial and the feud between Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.; the popular history-retold podcast "You're Wrong About" has lately covered the O.J. Simpson trial, the D.C. sniper attacks and the Y2K panic.
