Episode 36 – Brain Magic with Tony Barnhart
Anthony “Magic Tony” Barnhart is a cognitive psychologist at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He studies the psychological processes underlying handwritten word perception and the psychological foundations of magic and illusion. On this week’s episode of the podcast Tony discusses his work while I try to sell Tony on my crackpot theory connecting magic and autism.
This week’s episode makes an excellent double bill with this chat from last year with Susanna Martinez Conde and Stephen Macknick.
