One Hand, One Heart is when our main characters sing about their future wedding. The music to this song was written first and Sondheim felt a bit hampered by that. Kyle invites filmmaker, musician, and actor William White onto the podcast to discuss this romantic song. Plus, they wonder if Sondheim is (maybe) just a bit too harsh on himself.

What is Putting It Together?
This is a podcast about Stephen Sondheim's entire body of work show by show and song by song. Each week Kyle Marshall invites an expert to discuss a Sondheim song in-depth. Together they discover the humour, how the songs inform character, and any hidden meanings. Most importantly they try to understand the man behind the music, the Shakespeare of our time, as best they can.
