15-36 Segment 1: Hunting and Poaching Big Game: Is it ever justified?

When an American trophy hunter killed Cecil the Lion, a protected animal in an African game preserve, the internet was packed with Tweets and Facebook diatribes condemning the man who did it and big game hunting in general. Why are we so concerned about one animal when there are millions of them killed around the world every year? Is there a good reason to shoot large game for sport, or is it always wrong? We talk to several wildlife specialists about the Cecil incident, find out how this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to hunting and poaching wild animals, and hear about the good things that controlled and monitored trophy hunting can provide.

Host: Gary Price. Guests: Dr. Samuel Richards, a senior lecturer in sociology at Penn State University; Keith Norris, director of government affairs & partnerships at the Wildlife Society; Mike Hoffmann, senior scientist for the International Union for Conservation of Nature, Species Survival Commission, IUCN.

15-36 Segment 2: The New Look and Sound of Resumes and Job Interviews

These days, a phone or digital interview often precedes the face-to-face meeting for job hunters. If you think that all you have to do is sit in front of your computer or cell phone camera and talk, think again.

We talk to two employment specialists about how the interview and resume processes have changed, and how applicants can get the edge in the digital job search market.

Host: Gary Price. Guests: Amy Kristof-Brown, Professor in the Henry Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa; Paul J. Bailo, CEO of Phone Interview Pro, author of The Essential Digital Interview Handbook.
