Public-radio item on business, power, & speaking up

I'm looking for a story (roughly 5 minutes) that I heard on the NPR One app a few days ago: It was about how perceived power imbalances between people at the same managerial level in an office will lead to people participating in group problem-solving to different degrees, and how to "fix" it. My googling is just turning up stories about power companies & how awful meetings are. Help? [more inside]

Voting turnout in different countries

“A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote in a national election” Why is there an apparent apathy of political participation in America, and to extend it a bit, how come voting turn-out is higher in some countries in others even if the countries in comparison are both recognized liberal democracies?

Hoping to listen to the Singalong Sound of Music with audience participating.

Can anyone help me find an audio version of the Singalong Sound of Music with the audience participation included in the recording? I am not looking for a short clip (the only things I've managed to find so far) but rather, the entire show. Thanks.

Can I take up a team sport at my age?

I'm 30 years old, in the UK, and I want to start playing a team sport. Probably rugby. I haven't kicked a ball in anger since I was 15, and I wasn't very good at it even then. (I am reasonably fit though - I jog.) How does someone like me get (back) into team sport, and am I likely to enjoy it, or will I just find myself frustrated?

How can I recruit job hunters to talk to me for my thesis?

Finding Job Hunters : I need to get 30-50 job hunters to talk to me about their job searches. I've tried recruiting in all the obvious (to me) places, but I'm not having much luck. I need ideas on how/where to find job hunters and what i can do to encourage participation. [MI]
