It's a weird way to end a show, but then again with Anyone Can Whistle everything has been a bit odd. Karen Unland and her daughter Elizabeth (from the podcast That's a Thing?!) join the show to discuss With So Little To Be Sure Of. They also talk about the difficulty with love songs, whether this song is inconsistent with the characters singing it, and they try to guess how many Tony Award nominations the show received.

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.
