TLTP 013 – Numbers Stations
Welcome to our birthday party – this month, The Last Tuesday Project is a year old! And we’ve decided to give ourselves a birthday present by talking about a subject we’re all a little obsessed with… the phenomenon that are numbers stations.
Shaun acts as Dimbleby, while Alex and Hayley dig deep into this fascinating and somewhat conspiratorial subject. Alex goes off on one about the nerdy parts of this subject, and Hayley shows her ghoulish side.
And, for once, here are the show notes! (Yes, I know, I’m as shocked as you.)
