I went to the Museum of Questionable Devices (when it was still its own thing) and I got to use the phrenology machine. I don't have my printout anymore, so I don't know what my tendencies are.

And in related pseudo-science, learn more about "physiognomy" and how to use it to read someone's personal character at the National Library of Medicine's medical history blog, Circulating Now! http://circulatingnow.nlm.nih.gov/2014/01/29/how-to-read-personal-character/

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 work
