It was the decade of the LA riots and the fall of the Berlin Wall. On TV it was 90210 and Friends. Grunge altered the music scene. And the Internet entered our lives. It was a decade that probably doesn’t get its due attention now, but Corus Entertainment’s Curiouscast network aims to remedy that by going inside the social, political, and cultural moments that defined a decade in a new podcast, History of the ‘90s. The podcast is an expansion of host Kathy Kenzora’s popular History of 1995 podcast, which was included on Apple’s list of Best Canadian Podcasts in 2018.
“The ’90s is one of the most fascinating decades in modern history,” said Chris “Dunner” Duncombe, Director of Streaming and Podcasting, Corus Entertainment. “To stop and think about how much the world has changed as a result of that short window of time is truly remarkable. Not only will this podcast explore some of the biggest moments of the ‘90s, Kathy will also take a deep dive into stories many listeners have likely never heard before. We are so excited to share this new podcast with Curiouscast listeners.”
Kenzora began her career as a journalist in Toronto. At her core, she is an old-school reporter who loves to tell stories. She is based in Ontario.
“When we were living through the ’90s, it was hard to appreciate the importance of everything that was going on in the world at the time,” said Kenzora. “This podcast gives us a chance to take a retrospective look at the major stories and events of the ’90s with a more complete understanding of the impact they had on society.”
The trailer for History of the ’90s is available HERE. Premiering with two episodes on July 17, new episodes will be released every two weeks via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, and RSS feed. For more information, visit Curiouscast.ca.
