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.
Tonight, return guest Swarthmore professor Dr. Barry Schwartz on how to develop wisdom. 
And before you think this is going to be some snooty intellectuals-only show...read on. 
Plato is the snob philosopher -- the guy who thought wisdom was to be had by only by the intellectual elites.
Aristotle's my man -- the one who, like cognitive therapy founder Dr. Albert Ellis, believed wisdom was attainable by ordinary people.
And it is. 
This evening, Dr. Barry Schwartz will explain how emotions, trained and modulated, are the key to being behaving wisely.
And, contrary to conventional "wisdom" that emotions should be kept out of business or professional decisions, Schwartz will lay out why that's not the case, and why "practical wisdom" is a key to both personal and relationship happiness.
His compelling book (complete with some moving stories) is "Practical Wisdom: The Right Way to Do the Right Thing." His co-author is poly-sci prof Dr. Kenneth Sharpe. Link to book on Amazon: http://amzn.to/Nhurvk
