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

Word has it there’s some big sporting event on tonight (aka The Superbowl), so I’m replaying one of my “best of” shows.

My guest is social psychologist Dr. Carol Tavris, on how to admit mistakes instead of continuing to make them. She talks about common ways we make errors in reasoning and judgment that mess up our lives, and how to avoid them.

Her terrific book, co-authored with Dr. Elliot Aronson, is one of my favorites: Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts.

Join me and 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!
