I had a fun conversation with my friend, Andy Luttrell, on his "Opinion Science"podcast. We covered a lot of ground, from magic and mentalism to attention to education to skepticism. Andy's pedigree is similar to mine; he was a mentalist before he was a psychologist. Consequently, we went down some fun rabbit holes. As the kids say, "smash that 'like' button and subscribe" to Andy's podcast.
I had a lengthy conversation with Milena Korostenskaja for her Neurocareers Podcast...So lengthy that it will be broken into two parts! We covered a lot of ground, from the science of magic to how undergraduate students can set themselves up for success in graduate school and on the job market. The first part is out now. I'll update this post once the second part becomes available.
08/29/2022 Update: And Part 2 is now available!
My colleague, Gregory Berg, invited me on his daily radio show to discuss my J-Term course devoted to the Cognitive Science of Magic. Of course, our discussion veered in some other directions, as it always does. Have a listen!
I was interviewed on the Society of American Magicians "Backstage" podcast. It was a really fun chat about the history of interaction between scientists and magicians. Enjoy!
I was interviewed in two episodes of the Cengage "Neuro Transmission Podcast." The first interview relates to my academic trajectory, from magician to psychologist who studies magic. The second explores my use of magic in the classroom as a tool for enhancing students' critical thinking. Both episodes are available at https://www.cengage.com/learn/neurotransmission
I was interviewed on Joe Diamond's "Unreal Radio" show. You can listen to the interview at https://blubrry.com/unreal_radio/22057187/unreal-radio-16-a-talk-with-dr-anthony-barnhart-about-magic-psychology-and-cognitive-science/?autoplay=true
I made an appearance down under on Nicholas J. Johnson's "Scamapalooza" podcast. Nick and I talked about all sorts of things including the relationship between magic and autism. It was both fun and strange. You can download the podcast at https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-scamapalooza-31130210/episode/36-brain-magic-with-tony-41732954/.
I was interviewed about magic, cognitive science, and whatever came up organically on the "A Life Well Designed" podcast, with Jonathan Pritchard. Have a listen!
I was interviewed for "The Magic Word," a podcast for magicians and magic aficionados. While I do use some magic lingo, it should be an accessible primer to my research. You can listen to the podcast by directing your browser to http://themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/260-tony-barnhart.
I am an Associate Professor of Psychological Science at Carthage College, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
