    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    Today we will be speaking to two veterans, Mark G, activist, poet, father and member of All of Us or None and Gary Hollis, business man, father and mentor, about the serving time in the armed forces and also about the synergy between the Military Industrial Complex and the Prison Industrial Complex.

    We close with an interview with artist, Francesca Blanchard about her first album: “DeuxVisions" http://www.francescablanchard.com/about/

    Francesca Blanchard is performing in San Francisco on November 21st at Slim's, opening for Yuna. This is Francesca's first San Francisco appearance.

    Dr. Francesca Gino on how to make wise decisions and stick to them

    in Psychology

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

    *NOTE: "Best Of" replay. New live shows in September -- under a brand new show name we'll announce soon.

    Adorably, we humans see ourselves as rational animals. Research shows us to be anything but.

    We are swayed in ways we wouldn’t expect in both our decision-making and how well we stick to our plans. 

    The good news is, the research also shows that our going off track happens in predictable ways. My guest tonight, Harvard Business School professor, Dr. Francesca Gino, will both lay out the forces that sidetrack us as we’re trying to accomplish our goals and offer guidelines that we can use to keep ourselves on track. 

    Dr. Gino will be discussing her recently-published book, Sidetracked: Why Our Decisions Get Derailed, and How We Can Stick to the Plan. Join us tonight and have your eyes opened about the psychological, social, and environmental stumbling blocks that keep us from getting where we want to go.

    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, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck."

    Respect Your Parents

    in Motivation

    Father's Day was just this past weekend, and so many of us took our parents for granted. Today, I want to stress the need to respect your parents, the people who changed your diapers and fed you. From the moment you first came into this world, your parents have stood by your side supporting you. They will never turn their backs on you even when they probably should. Your family is the greatest team you will ever be a part of. So, say thank you for always being there for you.
