The world has changed a lot in 20 years. And when you’ve be broadcasting through all of it, you have the benefit of going back to see what things were like during those times. Whether it’s a personal memory, a significant moment in history or the silliness of a segment that catches their eye, Hamish and Andy are looking at the run sheets from over 2,500 shows across two decades and picking one singular talk break to discuss. They try to remember what was going on behind the scenes as well as on air, before listening back to the original audio. Often their recollections are completely wrong to the reality of what truly happened but it’s a super fun journey back in time regardless. We’ll all feel a little nostalgic listening.
