Great speeches can change the course of history. Not every speech, however, ends up getting delivered. Many, by twist of fate or some last-minute decision, end up being lost to history, such as Hillary Clinton's 2016 Election acceptance speech or Emperor Hirohito's speech of remorse following WWII. Thankfully, prominent speechwriter Jeff Nussbaum has published a book to recover these lost documents, titled Undelivered: The Never-Heard Speeches That Would Have Re-Written History. In this episode, we discuss with Mr. Nussbaum the words that almost became history.
