Nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio -- "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. It's every Sunday, 7-8pm Pacific, 10-11pm Eastern, with podcasts available afterward.


Our days are filled with choices screaming at us to be made. Camus joked about this: "Should I kill myself or have a cup of coffee?"
We think more choices are better -- but research shows that human brain is actually overwhelmed by more than a handful of choices. Having many choices often leaves us unable to choose or upset and dissatisfied with our choices afterward.
Tonight on Advice Goddess Radio, psychology professor Dr. Barry Schwartz, author of The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less, will explain how to manage choice in our lives so it helps us rather than running us.
