    Witches | 35

    On this episode of History of the 90s we are looking back at the decade’s obsession with witches.   From The Craft to Charmed, witches were everywhere in popular culture with a slew of movies and tv shows that showcased wiccan rituals and magic. 

    The witch craze in the 90s was nothing new.  Studies show that with every wave of feminism, there is a renewed interest in the witch.  It happened in the 60s, the 90s and its happening again right now in 2020.

    But the 90s, seemed extra witchy and thanks to nostalgia many of those movies and TV shows remain popular to this day.

    Just in time for Halloween, join us as we look at some of the best witches of the decade.

    Vanilla Ice | 34

    Vanilla Ice | 34

    On this episode of History of the 90s we look back at the complicated legacy of Vanilla Ice who was the first rapper to have a number one song on the Billboard music charts.

    His album To the Extreme, featuring Ice Ice Baby, sold 12 million copies and earned him an American Music Award for best new pop/rock artist in 1991. 

    But Ice’s rising star quickly crashed to the ground when it was revealed that his back story was made up.  Plus, many in the hip-hop community criticized his homogenized style of rap and accused Ice of trying to cash in on black culture. 

    And if that wasn’t enough, Ice also found himself in some hot water with hip-hop outlaw Suge Knight over writing credits on Ice Ice baby.   

    Check out Vanilla Ice performing Ice Ice Baby on the 1991 American Music Awards:

    Fall of the Berlin Wall and German Reunification | 33

    Fall of the Berlin Wall and German Reunification | 33

    This year marks the 30th anniversary of one of the most historic moments of the 1990s.  On October 3, 1990, East and West Germany were reunited after 45 years of cold war separation. 

    The reunification process was set in motion a year earlier when border crossings along the Berlin Wall were unexpectedly opened, finally allowing friends and family who had been divided by the concrete barrier to reunite.  Who can forget the glorious celebrations that took place on top of the Berlin Wall which marked a turning point in modern history? 

    On this episode of History of the 90s we look back at the tumultuous events that led up to the toppling of the Berlin Wall and ultimately the reunification of East and West Germany.

    Abortion Sniper | 32

    Abortion Sniper | 32

    On this episode of History of the 90's we look back at an era when unprecedented violence against abortion providers gave rise to a serial shooter, known as the abortion sniper. 

    Abortion doctors in Canada and the US were targeted by a lone gunman who lurked outside their homes, often for days, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. 

    It was all part of a rise in violence in the 1990's lead by anti-abortion groups like the Army of God and Operation Rescue who used destructive tactics like arson and bombings to get clinics shutdown and prevent abortions from taking place.

    Comedy from Stand-up to Sitcom - Part 2

    On this episode we continue our look back at the stand-up sitcom boom of the 1990s.  Following the success of shows such as Roseanne and Seinfeld, networks scrambled to find more comics who could become television stars.  Some up and coming comics were discovered on Star Search or Johnny Carson while others got their big break at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. 

    Soon networks were filled with sitcoms starring previously unknown stand-up comedians.  On part two we look back at Everybody Loves Raymond, The Drew Carey Show, The Sinbad Show, All-American Girl, Grace Under Fire and Bless this House.
