This week on the Sunday Documentary Hour, an election special hosted by NPR's Scott Simon called Groundwork: Democracy Close to Home from The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
At a time of political gridlick and polarization at the national level, Groundwork explores the tone and flavor of democratic action in towns and cities, where one’s antagonist is not an opposing talking-head or a politician from a state of a different “color,” but a neighbor.

This week on the Sunday Documentary Hour, another installment of BURN: An Energy Journal. Earlier in this series we've heard about nuclear power and the hunt for oil. Now, BURN's host Alex Chadwick examines how, in this election season, a single person, place, or policy can – with a boost from science – affect the nation’s search for greater energy independence. President Barack Obama and his opponent, Mitt Romney, share one broad policy goal – greater energy independence for the United States. But, they differ on how to achieve it.
All we can say is WOW - and THANK YOU. Our Fall Fund Drive officially ended at 11:59pm last night and we are thrilled to report that we reached our goal. Our budget required us to set an ambitious goal of $220,000 - one of the highest goals we have ever set - and our listeners stepped up and got us there. We raised $219,612 and we are calling that SUCCESS.
