TWTW_image-min-min82l9b.jpeg

Andre/Sonny

In this podcast we explore the lives and deaths of those characters from history and celebrity that might have been forgotten. Lovingly and sensitively forced through the lens of gallows humour, served with a healthy dose of terminal cynicism. 

This podcast contains adult themes, dark humour and some fruity language and is not suitable for a younger audience.

The Way They Went is Written & Presented by David Powell and James Sandy and is a King of the Buttons Production 2021.
