Synopsis: Many people remain in bad situations because they are afraid to quit, but they shouldn’t. Our guest says that if you take the time to carefully plan just how and when you’ll walk out the door, it’s easier to deal with the anxiety, fear and depression that can follow such a big decision. We’ll hear about steps anyone can take – and those they shouldn’t – when it’s time to quit and move on.
Host: Gary Price. Guest: Peg Streep writes non-fiction, is a blogger at Psychology Today.com and the author of the book, “Quitting: Why we fear it, and why we shouldn’t, in life, love and work,” now out in paperback.
Synopsis: A few weeks ago, veteran news anchor, Brian Williams, was suspended from his job on the Nightly News because he had embellished a story about his involvement in an event in the Iraq War. Did he purposely lie? Or could it have been a matter of “misremembering”? We talk to a psychologist and a news veteran about the issue, how it can happen and what the future may hold for Williams.
