The world has changed a lot in 20 years and Hamish & Andy have been broadcasting through all of it. In their new podcast series, The Remembering Project, the boys are digging into their extensive archive to see what they can remember (or rather forget…)
Whether it’s a personal memory, a significant moment in history or the silliness of a segment that catches their eye, Hamish and Andy will look at their notes from over 2,500 shows, across two decades, to try and remember what was going on behind the scenes as well as on air.
They then listen back to the original audio, often to find their recollections are completely wrong, but it’s always a super fun journey back in time.
Enjoy a trip down memory lane with Australia’s most successful radio and podcast duo.
