The Wrong Bed podcast

Launched in Vegas in 2009, The Wrong Bed podcast took an independent irreverent and generally irrelevant look at the world of darts. After six series of ever decreasing length and quality, TWB went on a long break, just as everyone else worked out how to make podcasts profitable.

Below you can access more than 50 previous episodes – or you can listen via the never-updated Facebook page, via iTunes, on this (fairly slow and very old-school) direct download, or through numerous other routes many of which weren’t invented when we started out.

Tricky D and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the show, in particular for making us laugh – and  helping us generate a volume of  outtakes that would make Denis Norden proud.

You can get in touch by emailing, or following @thewrongbed on twitter; sometimes we might even respond. We may even put together another episode or two, if you ask nicely.

We're back, albeit briefly, for a whistle-stop tour of the 2015 PDC World Championship which saw Gary 'Definitely not no-balls' Anderson follow up victory with a trip to PC World, and the legend that is RVB steal our mike. It's good to be back.
