Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. 


*Slightly different time again this week to accommodate guest from the UK.
Psychologist Jeremy Dean, founder of the popular website PsyBlog, is the author of Making Habits, Breaking Habits: Why We Do Things, Why We Don't, and How To Make Any Change Stick -- which is the topic of today's show.
We are convinced that we are the boss of us -- that we do the things we do because they make sense, because we’ve got goals, because we make smart choices. Often, that’s far from the case. But, by understanding how habits are formed, why we develop them, and what our biases are, we can use habit-forming to our benefit and have some chance of stopping the habits holding us back. 
Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.
Please buy my science-based but funny book about why people are rude and how to change things, I SEE RUDE PEOPLE: One woman's battle to beat some manners into impolite society.
And please ask a newspaper near you to carry my award-winning syndicated, science-based advice column...if they don't already!
