Nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio -- "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research. 

My guest tonight on Advice Goddess Radio will be evolutionary psychologist Dr. Geoffrey Miller. You've read about his work -- his strippers study -- in my syndicated column. ("In a study by psychologist Geoffrey Miller, female lap dancers not on the pill earned an average of $276 a night whereas those on it brought in only $193, making pill-using lap dancers $80 less hot and sexy to men per night.")

We'll be discussing how and why we sell ourselves to others through what we buy, and debating whether we can do that without spending so much money -- the subject of Miller's book "Spent: Sex, Evolution, and Consumer Behavior."

Listen to all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8pm Pacific, 10-11pm Eastern, with podcasts available afterward, at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon
