    On Tuesday, Pennsylvania Attorney General released a scathing grand jury report detailing sexual abuse of children by 301 “predator priests” in 6 diocese and a cover up by church leadership.

    Burnout

    Guests: Christina Maslach, Kristen Lee, Alex Neason

    If you have a stressful, busy job, chances are that from time to time you’ve felt burnout. In surveys more than half of American employees report feeling overwhelmed at work, but a heavy workload isn’t the only hallmarks of burnout – feeling powerless, disrespected, mistreated and unsatisfied on the job are also indicators. So how do we stay engaged and energized at work? And should we always fight feelings of fatigue, boredom, and cynicism or can they be a sign that it’s time to get out? This hour, we discuss burnout and how to cope with it. We talk with CHRISTINA MASLACH, professor emerita of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley and KRISTEN LEE, behavioral science professor at Northeastern University. And Columbia Journalism Review’s ALEX NEASON shares her struggles covering the never ending news cycle.

    Imagined opposition

    Guests: Perry Bacon Jr.

    American’s political affiliations are generally a good indicator of how people vote but more and more they define identity and how much a person hates the other party. According to a recent study, Republicans and Democrats are flat out wrong when describing members of the other party in terms of race, religion, and income level, among other factors. PERRY BACON Jr., from of FiveThirtyEight, tells us why these misconceptions matter, why people choose one party over another, and what these misconceptions say about the modern political landscape.
