My 8 year old daughter

My 8 year old daughter listens with me, and her response to phrenology is, "Well, good thought, but try again."


Sorry for commenting so late, but I am SO far behind on my podcasts...

You talking about phrenology reminded of one of my favourite authors, Terry Pratchett, where in one of his books he talks about reverse-phrenology.
You pay a guy in a backalley with a bag full of hammers to change your personality.
It seems just as logical or crazy as the original phrenology idea.

I am writing from Brazil, although I am a South African. I teach English here, and your podcast is one of the things I use to come up with class topics.

Love your word

I've gone back and listened to your Halloween podcasts from last year and wanted to suggest a topic for next year... graverobbing.

From what I've heard, there were a lot of politics involved in graverobbing -- who got paid off, which corrupt officials allowed it. As a Philly resident, I've heard that the reason there are so many medical schools and institutions here is that officials used to turn a blind eye to body snatching, and so there were many cadavers available study for med schools. Wikipedia corroborates this, but I've never done any more research than that.

Also, I'd love to hear a history of hiccups.

Thanks!! You're awesome.

Love the show, do one on psychedelics!

I think that would be cool.



I listen to this show all the time here in Shanghai!

I would love to hear an episode about Endometriosis. Is it true that MEN can have this too? Weird!
