For Immediate Release
TORONTO, July 3, 2019 – From the LA riots to the fall of the Berlin Wall, from 90210 to Friends, Corus Entertainment’s Curiouscast network is taking listeners on a journey inside the social, political and cultural moments that defined a decade in a brand new podcast, History of the 90’s. 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. History of the 90’s is a co-production between Curiouscast and Kathy Kenzora.
“The 90’s is one of the most fascinating decades in modern history. 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 90’s, Kathy will also take a deep dive into stories many listeners have likely never heard before,” said Chris ‘Dunner’ Duncombe, Director of Streaming and Podcasting, Corus Entertainment. “We are so excited to share this new podcast with Curiouscast listeners.”
Host Kathy Kenzora began her career as a journalist in Toronto. She worked as a reporter with Q107 and Global News 640 Toronto for five years before leaving radio to pursue a career in communications and media relations. At her core, she is an old-school reporter who loves to tell stories. Kenzora is based in Ontario.
“When we were living through the 90’s, it was hard to appreciate the importance of everything that was going on in the world at the time,” said Kathy Kenzora, host of History of the 90’s. “This podcast gives us a chance to take a retrospective look at the major stories and events of the 90’s with a more complete understanding of the impact they had on society.”
The trailer for History of The 90’s is available here. The first episode will premiere on July 17 with the second episode being released on July 24. After July 24, new episodes will be released every other Wednesday via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn and RSS feed. For more information, visit Curiouscast.ca.
