History of the 90’s

The History of the 90’s podcast takes listeners on a journey back to the decade of pop-culture juggernauts like Beanie Babies, Seinfeld, Girl Power, Friends, and others.

Hosted by journalist Kathy Kenzora, History of the 90’s bills itself as “a podcast about a decade that changed the world”, a time when personal pagers were all the rage and the internet was in its infancy. The podcast combines lighthearted stories about Beanie Babies and Friends with more complex topics such as Columbine, the Long Island Lolita, O.J. Simpson, and other news stories.

Kenzora uses her background as a reporter to uncover new truths about stories we thought we knew. She paints a picture of the ’90s that will instantly resonate with listeners who experienced the decade first-hand. For those unfamiliar with ’90s popular culture, the podcast showcases a decade of relative innocence and excitement as new technologies blossomed and the world wide web was still a novelty.

Gateway episodes include Beanie Babies, Scream, and Girl Power.
