“Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi” is the penultimate film in the original Star Wars saga. MICHELLE: We both want to see it again — and I think that’s a big statement from people like us. And the audience agreed. There were several bursts of applause at the Saturday afternoon showing we went to. ALLEN: It’s been a little while since I’ve been thrilled by a movie. I was thrilled with this one.
Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf star as a mother and daughter in Sacramento, dealing with the fact that she wants to go to New York for college. MICHELLE: This is a good little movie, written and directed by Greta Gerwig. It’s about real issues — what happens when it’s time to go to college and your dad is out of work. And your brother and his girlfriend are living with their parents and bagging groceries with degrees from UC Berkeley. ALLEN: Hollywood likes to promote wealthy lifestyles.
“Saving Capitalism” is former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich’s explanation of how lobbyists and oligarchs have manipulated economic policy for the past 30 years to their own benefit. MICHELLE: Robert Reich, former secretary of labor, has an interesting little documentary out right now. I liked it, because it illustrates how people can be working full time, but still not making ends meet. And why your congressional representative might not return your calls.
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".
