  • Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman: Your child can be more than his test scores

    in Psychology

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


    On this show, a "Best Of" replay, cognitive psychologist Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman lays out why intelligence tests currently used are far too limiting in determining a student’s true potential. 


    Kaufman is a rigorous researcher whose work I know and respect, but his new book, UNGIFTED: Intelligence Redefined, offers much more than science. It offers inspiration in Kaufman’s own story as a “late listener” (due to a spate of ear infections) who was put into learning disabled classes. And then, in 9th grade, through sheer determination, pushed his way into a gifted kids’ class -- ultimately going on to Yale, getting a Ph.D., then going on to become a young professor at NYU.


    On this show, we’ll discuss the limitations of current testing and a host of other things that matter in whether a child succeeds and how Scott thinks we would better assess talent, creativity, and “the many paths to greatness.”

    Please buy my science-based and funny book on better human behavior, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck."  Along with positive reviews in the WSJ and other publications, Library Journal gave the book a starred review: "Verdict: Solid psychology and a wealth of helpful knowledge and rapier wit fill these pages. Highly recommended." 

  • Episode #5: sing to me songs of ascension, as the Archer’s arrow is honed sharp

    in Art

    Episode #5, on Saturday, December 21st at 8pm. Winter Solstice - the shortest day, the longest night.  The 6th light of Chanukah, our festival of sacred reclamation, resistance, die-hard faith and service.  How will you transcend your own darkness?  Broadcasting live, just up the street from Lake Ontario. This month, we’re highlighting the kind of love that comes charging out of us when we commit to deep, delicious, pleasureful, joyful, righteous self-love.  This love transforms us and our communities.  It allows us to escape to freedom.  It lifts itself up from lying in the street, immobilized to reaching transcendence, through the signal of song.  


    Listen in for:


    - a conversation with Erin Marie Konsmo of The Native Youth Sexual Health Network on her ongoing project, Indigenous Feminist Condom Cases and Beaded Condoms 


    - an interview with Kathana Namowrednow and Chenthoori Malan of Heartbeats: the IZZAT Project, a comic book created by young South Asian women to empower themselves and their communities around violence.


    - a discussion with Dawn Weleski of Pittsburgh’s Conflict Kitchen on their recent run-in with the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh over CK’s most recent Palestine iteration.


    - from the Archive: a 1998 recording of legendary activist Assata Shakur reading her open letter to Pope John Paul II on the occasion of his visit to Cuba.  Both Assata and Mike Brown were shot by cops in the US.  Unlike Assata, Mike wasn’t lucky enough to survive.


    - readings from Krishnamurti and music from Meredith Monk, Gabriel Teodros & SoulChef, Ian Kamau x Big Sproxx and more

    Walking the Woods and the Water: In Patrick Leigh Fermor's footsteps from the Hook of Holland to the Golden Horn:


      In 1933, the eighteen-year-old Patrick Leigh Fermor set out in a pair of hobnailed boots to chance and charm his way across Europe, "like a tramp, a pilgrim, or a wandering scholar." The books he later wrote about this walk, A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, and the posthumous The Broken Road are a half-remembered, half-reimagined journey through cultures now extinct, landscapes irrevocably altered by the traumas of the twentieth century.


      Aged eighteen, Nick Hunt read A Time of Gifts and dreamed of following in Fermor's footsteps. In 2011 he began his own "great trudge"—on foot all the way to Istanbul. He walked across eight countries, following two major rivers and crossing three mountain ranges. With only Fermor's books to guide him, he trekked some 2,500 miles through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey.


      His aim? To have an old-fashioned adventure. To slow down and linger in a world where we pass by so much, so fast. To discover for himself what remained of hospitality, kindness to strangers, freedom, wildness, adventure, the mysterious, the unknown, the deeper currents of myth and story that still flow beneath Europe's surface.

    Dr. Vladas Griskevicius: How to make wiser choices by using Deep Rationality

    in Psychology

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


    ("Best Of" replay.) Decisions that we make that seem stupid can actually make a lot of evolutionary sense, meaning that they would have made sense in the ancestral world; they just don’t make sense in the world in which we now live.


    Unfortunately, we can’t just tell our genes, “Hey, it’s 2013! There are no hungry tigers roaming the streets of Baltimore and, by the way, my girlfriend’s on The Pill.” 


    But, my guest tonight, evolutionary psychologist, psychologist and marketing professor Dr. Vladas Griskevicius, is going to give us the background to make wiser choices by helping us understand the ways we can be primed to act against our modern interests. 


    His fascinating book, co-authored with Dr. Douglas Kenrick, is “The Rational Animal: How Evolution Made Us Smarter Than We Think.”

    --Edwin F. Becker, author of True Haunting

    Viral Mythology: How the Truth of the Ancients was Encoded and Passed Down through Legend, Art, and Architecture:


     Behind every myth, fairy tale, and legend--hidden within the art, song, and structures of ancient times--is an encoded layer of wisdom, science, and truth passed down throughout history. This book will examine how information went "viral" long before the Internet, and served as the foundation for mythology, sacred architecture, and symbolic imagery throughout the ancient world.

    Viral Mythology reveals:


    ?  How primitive and ancient cultures conveyed cutting-edge scientific knowledge in their origin stories and myths


    ?  Why esoteric knowledge was hidden in symbols, art, and architecture during times of religious oppression and persecution


    ?  How stories, songs, and art served to describe actual historical events


    ?  Why diverse civilizations told the same stories and created the same art with common themes and symbols, despite no apparent communication

     From the great myths of the Greek, Roman, and Norse to the texts of the world's major religions, from folklore and fairy tales of old to sacred edifices and monuments, from cave paintings to the mysterious symbology of the Tarot, Viral Mythology uncovers the information highway of the past, and explores how it affects the more modern methods of communication today.

     It all began once upon a time....
