    Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams on how to fail your way to success

    in Psychology

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


    *"Best of" replay tonight.


    Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams, obviously, is not a scientist. But he thinks and views his experiences like a scientist and his wisdom is well-supported.


    For example, Adams found that it isn't goals that are the key to success, but what he calls "systems." 


    And Adams advises, based on his own steady stream of failures in business, that "Everything you want in life is in that bubbling vat of failure. The trick is to get the good stuff out."


    As a cartoonist, he thinks of himself as a "professional simplifier." That's what he does in his just-published book, How To Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, and simplifying for all of us what it takes to succeed in business and be happy in life is what he does on tonight's not-to-be-missed show.


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. ET, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please support this show by buying my book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck" (St. Martin's Griffin, 2014).

    American By Design with Politically Incorrect Cartoonist Antonio F. Branco

    in Politics Conservative

    This Monday I will interview my favorite politically incorrect cartoonist/satirest Antonio F. Branco and friend on "American By Design". Please dont miss this show as we will talk about how he pens his cartoons and the inspiration behind the man!


    Branco describes himself as “somewhere between the Far Side and the right side of every issue.” He sits at his desk daily crafting comically and politically-incorrect cartoons that say with humorous satire what conservatives really think, but lack the opportunity to say to a broad audience. After years of listening to the squeaky wheel of the left advancing the cause of radicalism, Branco decided to use the power of his bully palette to advance the conservative movement. Conservatives worldwide can be glad he did. According to Branco, “The art and humor of political cartoons has since the dawn of the Republic been a way to sway those who might not otherwise be persuaded.”


    “Branco is a surgeon and his pen is his scalpel, an instrument he wields with laser-like precision in cutting through the philosophical morass of liberal orthodoxy.”


    First there was Franklin. Then there was Nast. Now there is Branco. A.F. Branco is the latest rising star in a long line of political cartoonists, and his work already surpasses some of the giants in the business. I encourage readers to enjoy his creative and humorous satire and to spread the word that Branco. At long last we have a conservative political cartoonist whose sharp mind, able pen, and incisive wit counteract the destructive falsehoods, distortions, and manipulation of the left-leaning mainstream media. Branco is a surgeon and his pen is his scalpel, an instrument he wields with laser-like precision in cutting through the philosophical morass of liberal orthodoxy.
