TLTP 002 - Trust Me... I'm An Expert
Welcome to the second episode of The Last Tuesday Project. Each month, this gaggle of rag-tag ruffians meet up to discuss one topic. Only one of us knows what that topic will be, and we get just one hour to research it. The outcome is a podcast full of laughs, stories, facts and tips on how to dig deeper.
This month, Alex, Hayley, Hannah, Shaun, and new recruit David discuss what it means to be an expert. We mull over 10,000 hours (the concept - the episode isn't that long), which sources to trust, the difference between being an expert and having expertise, plus some thoughts on chess.
Plus, this episode features our first topic veto. A decision which we later come to regret...

TLTP 001 - Fungus In Salem
Welcome to the first episode of The Last Tuesday Project! Each month one of us will come up with a topic which the others will spend an hour researching. Then we'll get back together and talk about that subject. Will we come to any conclusions? Who knows! But that doesn't matter - it's the process that counts.
Trust me, it's funnier than it sounds. :-)
This month, Alex, Hannah, Hayley and Shaun are going to be talking about the Salem Witch Trials. What evidence was there for claims that is was the result of ergot poisoning? What other options can we come up with? Plus, other random thoughts about cholera epidemics and "relieving hysteria."
