TLTP 028a - Dentally Challenged

11/13/2018
More
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. Do you like what we do and want to show...

TLTP 028 - The Whole Tooth

10/30/2018
More
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. Fluoride...

TLTP 027a - Ethicast

10/9/2018
More
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 like what we do and want to show your support? Well, you can now give us a helping hand via Patreon! Just go to...

TLTP 027 - Fractious Energy

9/25/2018

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. What is fracking and why is it controversial?BBC https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-14432401Hydraulic FracturingWikipediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydraulic_fracturing)Can fracking...

More
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...

TLTP 026 - The Music Or The Misery

8/28/2018
More
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. Nick Hornby Quotable...

TLTP 025a - Old School

8/14/2018
More
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. Do you like what we...

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.

TLTP 024a - Hare Update

7/10/2018
More
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...

TLTP 024 - Caesar's Mental Muscle

6/25/2018
More
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...

TLTP 023a - Critical Britpop

The common people have assembled once more for another TWOsday Extra episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

Well, you can now give us a helping hand via Patreon! Just go to https://www.patreon.com/LastTuesdayProject.

TLTP 023 - Bluebeard And The Jolly Rogers

5/29/2018
More
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. Do you like what we do and want to show your support? Well, you can now give us a...

TLTP 022a - Mental Heath Awareness Week 2018

5/8/2018
More
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. Is Facebook Spying On You? (Reply All #109)...

TLTP 022 - Socially Awkward

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...

TLTP 021a - Grammatica Placere Corrigere

4/9/2018
More
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...

TLTP 021 - Propositum Ad Ultima Martis

Friends! Romans! Countrymen! Welcome to the Last Tuesday Project! In this episode, Alex asks an unusual question... Do all roads really lead to Rome? Hayley and Shaun puzzle over this, covering the manipulation of data, whether roads actually lead away from Rome, and how many dinari it would cost to get from Lindum Colonia to Roma. All this, plus plenty more, in this week's historic (and ambling) episode. ORBIS: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman...

TLTP 020a - Electroblobs And Boobs

3/13/2018
More
Welcome to this month's TWOsday episode of The Last Tuesday Project. We spend a brief 10 minutes talking about the topic of the main episode, before revisiting the subject matter of Episode 7. The latest episode of the What Doctor's Don't Tell You podcast spent some time discussing the subject of breast cancer screening and some associated subjects, and we thought that we would take some time to discuss what they say. Finally, we look at the recent furore surrounding Brew Dog's Pink IPA...

TLTP 019 - Not Doctored

Ooh, matron! It's The Last Tuesday Project! This month is a listener's questions special! We offer thanks to Daniel Pott for his two splendid questions. We ended up vetoing the first question on radiosensitivity (in spite of our interest in the subject), and went on to look at the Weekend Effect. Are you really more likely to die if you are admitted to hospital on a weekend than on a weekday? Would the infamous "7 Day NHS" fix such an issue? How much is fact, and how much is...
