'Throughline' Coming To KPBS-FM
If recent events in the news like the breach of the U.S. Capitol building last week have proved nothing else, it’s made it clear that we are witnesses to history. And it also might have us thinking, "how did things ever get this way?"
KPBS-FM is taking a step toward an explanation by adding a new program to its lineup, "Throughline" from NPR. The new radio show started as a history podcast, and true to its name it connects the events of the past with our present day lives.
In the weekly one-hour narrative series, hosts Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouei tackle the history behind today's headlines, and take the listener back in time to understand the present. These are stories you can feel from the moments that shaped our world.
"Throughline" will air Sundays at 10 a.m. on KPBS-FM beginning on Jan. 17.
Hosts Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouei joined Midday Edition Friday to talk about the show.
