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