NPR's 'Throughline' Explores The Backstories Behind Today's Headlines

Mike Morgan
Ramtin Arablouei and Rund Abdelfatah are co-hosts of 'Throughline.'

"Throughline" has so far been a hit as a history podcast. And now, it's debuted on public radio stations across the country.

It's not the kind of show where the hosts just interview historians. The team at "Throughline" take current events or news on people’s minds and then go back in time to trace how we got here. In this interview, we hear from Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouie about how they got started and why.

Catch "Throughline" on KALW on Monday nights at 6 p.m.

Hana Baba is host of Crosscurrents, KALW's weeknight newsmagazine that broadcasts on KALW Public Radio in the San Francisco Bay Area.
