The Last Tuesday Project

A group of friends get together once a month thanks to the wonder of modern technology to discuss one topic. That topic can come in the form of either a question, a subject, a claim, or a statement. The thing is, only one of us knows what that topic is going to be. That person shall henceforth be known as the Dimbleby. (It's a long story.) The Dimbleby has two topics in their pocket. They tell us the first one and then the rest of us have the opportunity to veto it based on a majority vote. If we veto the first topic, we hear the second topic. We cannot veto the second topic. You know, just to add a little bit of jeopardy to the whole thing. From that point on we have an hour to each research the topic. We can do it whatever way we want to, either through the internet, or books, or going to the library, or shouting across the road at your neighbour... Once the hour is up, we get back together again and talk about it. The Dimbleby guides us, asks us questions on what we've researched. At the end of it we come to a conclusion. Or not, as the case may be. That brings us to the point of The Last Tuesday Project. This is less about the conclusions we come to, although they can be fun and interesting. It's more about how we get there. Doing this sort of research - looking for evidence, sifting through the crap - is something anyone can do. We don't want to tell you what to think, and we're loathe to say that we want to tell you how to think. What we want to do is give you the tools so that you can come to your own conclusions without being swayed by biased information. Being able to detect fact from fiction, science from pseudoscience, brilliant ideas from bullshit. One group of friends, one topic, one hour to research. Welcome to The Last Tuesday Project.

It's high time we gave you some TWOsday goodness. Welcome to this month's extra episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

This month we have a selection of outtakes from the main episode. Hayley talks about genetic sexual attraction, Hayley and Jane both squee over the prospect of going to a live show of another podcast, and Alex and Hayley go through lists of short men we can all look up to. There's also an extended discussion of documentaries, podcasts and a certain royal Netflix series...

The height of sophisticaion has returned. Trust us, we won't give you short shrift. Welcome to a sizeable chunk of The Last Tuesday Project!

Tall tales about short stature are addressed this month, as Hayley takes the reins. Alex and Jane veto a question about genetic sexual attraction and end up with the question of The Napoleon Complex. Is it a thing? Does it only affect men? And how many puns about height can we fit into one episode? You'll find out shortly...

Singing for our supper and talking the hind legs off a donkey (no donkeys were harmed in the making of this episode), it's time for a particularly random extra episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

TWOsday is here again and it's filled with outtakes and random crap from Alex, Hayley and Jane! Hayley's been reading, Jane's been writing, and Alex is still trying to break obsolete equipment.

Hush, keep very still, for the strangest things are about to happen... And now SING AS LOUD AS YOU CAN! It's The Last Tuesday Project!

This month we've gone for a listener question. Evolutionarily speaking, which came first: speech or singing? We barely scratched the surface of this fascinating subject. Take a deep-dive into early man with us!

It's a new year, but we're not quite done with the last one yet. Welcome to this month's TWOsday episode of The Last Tuesday Project.

This time we have outtakes from Episode 30, as well as new ramblings from a recording we did on Saturday 5th January 2019. Alex, Hayley, Jane and Shaun are all in this episode, although Hayley and Shaun aren't in it at the same time, leading to speculation that one might be the imagination of the other...

This time, Shaun gives us his response to our main episode about planned obsolescence, while Hayley, Jane and Alex just go off on random tangents.

With a warranty slightly shorter than its expected lifespan, here's this month's episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

This month Alex asks Hayley and Jane about planned obsolescence. Is there a massive conspiracy in the technology industry? How far back does the term's usage go? Are iPhones getting slower? And what's with the lightbulbs?

It's time to get to the root of our resident dentist's thoughts - it's a dental TWOsday from The Last Tuesday Project!

This time we've strapped Shaun into his own chair and are making him answer our own dental questions, on pain of having some of his tools be introduced to various squidgy parts of his anatomy. Is flossing worthwhile? Do we need to use mouthwash? What problems do dentists face in the UK? All this and more in the next 65 minutes.

Canine you believe it... It's a dental-themed episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

In this month's Last Tuesday podcast we finally answer the question that everyone’s been asking… are our minds being controlled by our drinking water? Shaun manages to get Hayley, Jane and Alex to do yet more work for his Masters’ by asking if we should be fluoridating our water supply. What appears to be a simple question turns into a rabbit hole which contains science, ethics and folic acid.

This month's TWOsday episode is all about ethics. No, this isn't a reference to GamerGate, but actually a discussion that Shaun, Hayley and Alex had back in May 2018. We first talk about ethics and dentistry, then move on to looking at human rights, the Trolley problem, homeopathy on the NHS and a very interesting pharmaceutical conundrum.

Do you feel that rumbling? Is that the energy within our earth stirring? Nah, it's just this month's episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

This month Hayley asks us whether we should give a frack about fracking. Alex and Jane take a look at the evidence and come across some questionable websites in the process.

You want witty banter? You want swearing? You want adults finding the name "Twenge" funny? You want Scarbella?! You lucky so-and-so - you've got this month's TWOsday episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

This time around we have outtakes from Episode 26 and the upcoming unreleased Episode 27. Jane, Alex, Hayley and Shaun have a laugh at themselves and the world. There's talk about referenda, Hayley's trip to Scarborough, the horrors of people "popping in", and more Twenge than you can shake a stick at.

Shoe-gazers, rejoice! Fans of 80s big-hair rock ballads, take heed! And emo kids, keep... emo-ing... It's time to take another musical deep-dive with The Last Tuesday Project!

This time Shaun and Alex veto Jane's first question (for a special reason) and end up taking on a subject very dear to every Tuesday's heart - The Music Or The Misery. If that quote means anything to you, you're going to love this episode!

Also... Twenge.

Take a break from studying, people! It's this month's TWOsday Extra episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

Alex, Hayley, Jane and Shaun are reminiscing about their days at school. We talk about Jane's school quirks, Hayley's school's French nationalism, Alex's school's Australian nationalism, and the fact that Shaun played golf as part of PE. But he didn't go to a posh school, oh no... Plus, we talk about traumatising Public Information films and British children's TV.

Break time's over, kids. It's time to get back to class and get yourself some learning from The Last Tuesday Project!

This month we are looking at education, with Alex asking a question about class sizes? Hayley and Guest Tuesday Jane diligently research the topic in preparation for the test at the end of the lesson.

TWOsday is upon us! Welcome to another Extra episode of The Last Tuesday Project.

This is an outtakes episode, made up of the flakey offcuts of episodes 23a and 24. It contains practically practically nothing useful, but it does contain much inappropriate humour (with some bits bleeped out for the sake of our own livelihoods). Shaun has hares in his garden, Alex's most depressing book is what he writes after a counselling session, and Hayley introduces us to a toy that can't really be marketed in the UK...

Bad luck comes in threes, they say. So let's get it all out of the way quickly with a triple-quick-fire episode of The Last Tuesday Project.

 

We're almost two years in, so we thought we'd change things up a bit for an episode. Instead of one question and taking an hour to answer, Hayley suggested that we try three smaller questions - ones that probably wouldn't take an hour to answer - and pack them all into one handy-to-manage episode! In this eclectic episode, Hayley asks if Caesar was captured by pirates, Alex asks about Myers-Briggs, and Shaun asks about fibromyalgia. Plus, you have a lot of outtakes to look forward to in the extra episode.

 

Our next TWOsday episode, Episode 24a, will be released on Tuesday 10th July 2018.

Avast, me hearties! It's time to walk a musical plank as we plunge into the sea of The Last Tuesday Project!

This month we went to our postbag and grabbed a couple of listener questions. We ended up plumping for a question from Simon (@flatsquid) about piracy and the music business. We go back to the late 19th century to music piracy's paper origins, mixtapes, insufficient data and gospel music in Kenya.

Hope you've been treating yourself well, because it's time for this year's Mental Health Awareness Week episode, another delightful TWOsday brought to you by The Last Tuesday Project.

This time around it's just Alex and Shaun. The aim was to talk about male mental health, but we ended up talking about all sorts of other things, from how male mental health affects feminism, to social media, and with a little on our own experiences.

Send your Likes this way... it's time for The Last Tuesday Project!

 

It's time for our annual mental health episode! Shaun is this month's Dimbleby, but Alex and Hayley veto his first question on Johann Hari. This leaves everyone with the question of how social media affects our mental health. We find some interesting (and not-so-interesting) research in journals which can't have existed 10 years ago, talk about apps which might help with managing your social media usage, and muse on our own usage of social media.

Welcome to this month's TWOsday episode of The Last Tuesday Project.

 

For this episode, Hayley had the excellent idea that we should talk about our favourite Romans. We did this... but it took us a little while to get there. IKEA meatballs, defunct British brands, kennel cough, and remote Norfolk villages were all subjects we nattered on about until we got to the main feature. Afterwards we discussed password security and Episode 3 of the What Doctors Don't Tell You podcast (we listen so you don't have to).

TRIGGER WARNING: At around 52 minutes, during the WDDTY section, we talk about antidepressants and suicide. If you don't feel comfortable with these subjects, please feel free to skip the end of this episode.
