    Brand: Women - Hit or Miss?

    in Marketing

    Tynicka and Liz talk about how Hillary's run for President can be harmful to the women's movement. This isn't about playing devil's advocate, we know that things are not getting better for women in the US. Listen in and see our show notes below.


    The White House report in 2011 showed that even though more women than men have college degrees, there was still big pay inequity, with women earning 75% of what men earn:  http://kkcb.com/has-the-womens-movement-stalled/


    Sheryl Sandberg says women’s movement has been stalled: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/womens-movement-stalled-says-facebooks-sandberg/


    Childcare costs have torpedoed progress: http://alumni.berkeley.edu/california-magazine/winter-2014-gender-assumptions/what-stalled-gender-revolution-child-care-costs


    And now, Hillary Clinton runs for President. Will this post-feminist movement featuring the same female faces on magazine covers as “success stories” (Katharine Graham, Sheryl Sandberg, Marissa Mayer or Hillary Clinton) lull us into thinking women have 'achieved so much'?  Danger zone!

    Joshua Wolf Shenk: The Science Of Partnering Up For Greater Innovation & 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.


    Joshua Wolf Shenk uses science, fascinating true stories of creative partnerships, and historical evidence to dispel the myth of the lone genius and show that creativity is not the work of an individual mind. It is, in fact, a social activity, and two people, working together, are truly "greater than the sum of their parts." Join us tonight to find out what it takes to be a creative partner -- and in turn, how to be far more than you can be alone.


    Shenk's book we'll be discussing is Powers Of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs. 


    Previously, he was the author of Lincoln's Melancholy, a New York Times Notable Book. 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 buy my book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck"(St. Martin's Griffin, 2014.) 


    Along with positive reviews in the WSJ and other publications, Library Journal gave my book a starred review: "Verdict: Solid psychology and a wealth of helpful knowledge and rapier wit fill these pages. Highly recommended." Orders of the book (new only, not used!) help support this radio show!

    in Psychology

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


    My guest today, NYU psychology professor Dr. Gabriele Oettingen, draws on more than 20 years of research on human motivation to show why conventional wisdom on "thinking positively" falls short. On tonight's show, she'll lay out her science-based method for achieving goals and explain why seeing the obstacles and not just the rainbows and pots of gold gives you your best chance for success.


    Her book we'll be discussing is Rethinking Positive Thinking: Inside the New Science of Motivation.


    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 order my new book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck" -- only $9.48 at Amazon. Orders help support my writing and all the work I do to put out this show and are much-appreciated!

Highly recommended.")

    A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Mandatory Minimum Sentences in U.S.

    in US Government

    Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  


    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.


    Our Special Guests for tonight's show is Mike Riggs, FAMM’s Director of Communications. He is a former journalist, who has covered civil liberties and criminal justice policy for Atlantic Media, Reason Magazine, the Washington City Paper, The Daily Caller, the Nation, and other outlets.


    A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
