Throughline is a weekly one-hour narrative history series. Each episode tackles the history behind today's headlines, and takes the listener back in time to understand the present. These are stories you can feel and sounds you can see from the moments that shaped our world. Launched as a weekly podcast in January 2019, Throughline will debut as a one-hour weekly radio program beginning January 15, 2021. Each week, hosts Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouei will bring their fresh perspectives to a new topic, and explore the historical underpinnings of our tumultuous current events landscape.
