The re-emergence of a Dublin rave house scene and Celtic family band The Corrs may not seem likely bedfellows, but it's embedded in the electro-folk DNA, of New York duo Overcoats. The female songwriters Hana Elion and JJ Mitchell were freshman students at Wesleyan University when they first started bonding over a mutual love of music. It took them three and a half years before they decided they wanted to actually be in a band together.
Political podcast "Pod Save America" is fast becoming the go-to for pundits and regular folks alike trying to make sense of the onslaught of news emerging from the Capitol, from repeals and tax bills to sex scandals and machinations of the 'swamp.' If you haven't heard it yet, it's free on iTunes. And if you take to it, catch the hosts live when they take their brand of activism on the road next year with Pod Tours America.
If you're trying to make sense of today's politics, you need to go see Pod Tours America. What began as a podcast started by Barack Obama's speechwriters and staffers has turned into a traveling roadshow. Co-hosts Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Tommy Vietor and Dan Pfeiffer have announced a 2018 speaking engagement tour of North America, kicking off early February in Los Angeles. The gang's project began during the 2016 presidential election as the podcast "Keepin It 1600."

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
