"Arablouei and Abdelfatah are contagiously curious in their conversations with knowledgeable guests as they examine the nuances of history often remembered more broadly. For those who want to know the stories behind the headlines, Throughline is for you."

Fiona Sturges - Financial Times - Mar 9, 2019

"As you would expect from a show helmed by two seasoned producers, the sound design is artful and clever, with overlapping voices and looped effects echoing the style of Radiolab, while the tone is chatty and irreverent. Throughline adeptly illustrates how history can illuminate the way we live today and that the past isn’t necessarily another country."
