Rising and grinding this morning (God I hate that phrase), but need to catch an early flight to Vegas as I’m giddy for March Madness, so you’re Podcast #69 is now ready to go. It’s with LA times columnist and author of “Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure,” Amy Kaufman. I finished the book this past weekend, and if you’re a fan of this franchise, and essentially want to know how the sausage is made, it’s a great read.
Just when you think it’s over, it isn’t. One season ends, and a new one begins. Not that this is surprising or snuck up on anyone since this has been their schedule for the last 6 seasons or so, but the “Bachelorette” begins filming this week. So in honor of that, today I’ll be giving you 10 of Becca’s guys. Five of which you already met last Tuesday night on the ATFR that I gave you full names of on Twitter right after they were announced.
The person I was asked most about all season of when am I gonna have her on the podcast again it today’s guest, Courtney Robertson. Obviously Arie will never come on this podcast, but Courtney might have been the next best thing. Why? Well once you listen today, you’ll realize (like I did when interviewing her) how much Arie told her from the second he got back from filming. I mean, he told her EVERYTHING, and we discuss it all today.
Shout out to Tony who i just met at the Venetian cashier window who recognized me somehow and said he reads and listens all the time. Lets get these tables fired up Tony. I’m getting a chill just standing next to them
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".
