Mister Ron's Basement No. 2000 (Part Fifteen of Twenty-One)
In celebration of reaching 2000 Episodes, we will be presenting Max Adeler’s 1879 Book ‘Random Shots’ from cover-to-cover over the course of 21 Days!
Phrenologists were immensely popular in the 19th Century. They were Doctors who treated and analyzed patients by feeling the bumps on their head. Today’s tale concerns a phrenologist who is also a total idiot. You will enjoy meeting ‘Professor Quackenboss.’
A. B. Frost
Time: approx twenty-five minutes
