On Point

  • February 8: Before the recent build-up of Russian forces on Ukraine’s border, Ukraine’s growing sense of national identity is one of the things that made it the subject of Putin’s ire. On Point finds out how the Russian military action is only strengthening Ukraine sense of its own identity and what that means for the Eastern European nation.
  • February 11: On Point explores the impact of the COVID pandemic on the education of the world’s children.

Arts and Culture

Time Machine from The Current

February 11 – 1996

  • The Time Machine takes it back to 1996 this time. Fugees scored big with the album The Score, Beck dropped his best yet. It was a HUGE year for 2nd albums and there was no Sophomore slump for both the Wallflowers and Cake, who both released the most successful albums of their career, so far. Johnny Cash issued his 2nd album on the American label and Wilco released its ambitious two album set Being There. In 1996, we first got to know Fiona Apple and Jay-Z, with both releasing debut efforts.
