Do you ever have the strange feeling that you've heard this promo before? Well, in this case, it's only fitting because we're going to explore deja vu on the next edition of To the Best of Our Knowledge. We'll try to find out what causes us to think we've already experienced the exact same situation before, even though we haven't. And Wendy Lesser talks about watching Alfred Hitchcock's classic film, "Vertigo." Over and over again.
