The Last Tuesday Project

A Society, Culture and Science podcast
 1 person rated this podcast
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.
