The first edition of What's the Big Idea features Brigid Schulte discussing her book, Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time.

Brigid and I talk about why work has become overwhelming for so many people and how leaders can ease the burden for their staffs.

In the coming months, this podcast will explore fresh research and big ideas from outside the nonprofit world and explain how they apply to you. I hope you'll join us.

Allison Fine, a nonprofit leader, author, and expert on technology and communications, discusses research in other fields that apply to nonprofit work. Ms. Fine incorporates suggestions and questions from readers into her podcasts and invites you to e-mail her at afine@afine.us. Look for new installments once a month.
