Amy Alkon's HumanLab -- The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

Dr. Dylan Evans will be talking about risk intelligence and how you can increase your ability to make wise decisions. 

Wise decisions are fact-based decisions instead of the superstition- and ignorance-based ones that are often the defaults ones our brain pushes us toward. 

It’s especially important to be factual about your own level of ignorance surrounding an area you need to make a decision about and factor that in. 

Evans' very smart book we'll be discussing is RISK INTELLIGENCE: How to live with uncertainty
