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 own usage of social media.

TRIGGER WARNING: We talk about mental health issues in this episode, including anxiety and depression.

TLTP 021a – Grammatica Placere Corrigere

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.

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.

TLTP 020a – Electroblobs And Boobs

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 campaign, as well as other “awareness” campaigns.

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 politics?

 

Our next TWOsday episode, Episode 19a, will be released on Tuesday 13th February 2018.

TLTP 018 – I See What You’re Saying

Merry Tuesday, you filthy animals! Welcome to episode 18 of The Last Tuesday Project!

It’s Boxing Day in the UK, which is kind of like a second Christmas, so consider this episode our slightly belated Christmas gift to you. Aren’t you lucky!

 

This month Alex, Hayley and Shaun are joined by Guest Tuesday Simon. We all surprise each other by vetoing a question on the Placebo Effect and end up talking at great length about Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Is there any evidence for it working? What are its origins? And why won’t anyone give Hayley a straight answer as to what it is?!

 

Our next TWOsday episode, Episode 18a, will be released on Tuesday 9th January 2018.
