This podcast covers New Girl Season 3, Episode 19, Fired Up, which originally aired on March 11, 2014 and was written by Sophia Lear and directed by Steve Welch. Here's a quick recap of the episode:Jess gets Coach a job at her school as the volleyball coach, but then has to fire him. Schmidt gets sued so Nick and Winston pose as his lawyers while Cece meets a new, younger guy. We discuss Pop Culture References such as:Winston shared “he can't enough of this legal drama” and shared his favorite author was John Grisham and favorite TV show was Judging Amy. John Grisham Judging AmyAdditional Pop Culture References such as:When Schmidt is reviewing where his stuff should go, the following were shared: Ian Schrager Rug - Schmidt didn't want this rug in a room without climate control. Ian Schrager is an American entrepreneur, hotelier and real estate developer, credited for co-creating the "boutique hotel" category of accommodation. In his hotels, Schrager understood the importance of a place's appearance and energy. As part of Schrager's larger organization, the Ian Schrager Group, they would commission rugs and carpets for their hotels to create the atmosphere. Star Wars - Nick didn't know who Ian Schrager was and thought he was “the guy in Star Wars”. Nick may have been confusing Ian Schrager with Ewen McGregor who starred in the Star Wars movies Episode 1, 2, and 3. Star Wars is an American epic space opera multimedia franchise created by George Lucas and is one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time. The franchise has been expanded into various films and other media, including television series, video games, novels, comic books, theme park attractions, and themed areas, comprising an all-encompassing fictional universe.Kristi Yamaguchi - Dr. Foster shared how he's into Asian women like Kristi Yamaguchi. Kristine “Kristi” Yamaguchi is an American former figure skater. In ladies' singles, Kristi is the 1992 Olympic champion, a two-time World champion, and the 1992 U.S. champion. In 1992, she became the first Asian American woman to win the gold medal in a Winter Olympic competition.The Da Vinci Code - One of the teachers yelled to burn all the books in the library except for The Da Vinci Code, which is a 2003 mystery thriller novel by Dan Brown. The Da Vinci Code follows symbologist Robert Langdon and cryptologist Sophie Neveu after a murder in the Louvre Museum in Paris causes them to become involved in a battle between the Priory of Sion and Opus Dei over the possibility of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene having had a child together. The novel is a worldwide bestseller that sold 80 million copies as of 2009 and has been translated into 44 languages. The book was also adapted into a film starring Tom Hanks in 2006. We also cover when Schmidt and Nick are arguing about the “caboose of life” as our “Schmidtism” in this episode. For “Not in the 2020s” we discuss Dr. Foster's comments about being exclusively into asian women and Mike saying he had “quite an eye for young boys”. In our “Yes in the 2020s” we discuss Jess standing up to keep Coach's job. We also give a brief look into Matt Price (Bill Berklan), Lauri Johnson (Stenographer), and Rob Kerkovich (Tim), the guest stars we feature in this episode.Also in this episode were the following guest stars who we do not discuss in the podcast: Ben Falcone (Mike - Previously Discussed in S3E13), Curtis Armstrong (Principal Foster - Previously Discussed in S2E24), Brian Posehn (Biology Teacher - Previously Discussed in S3E11), James Frecheville (Buster), Matt Fusfeld (Douchey Guy), Helen Hong (Teacher), Kim Yarbrough (Another Teacher), Michelle N. Carter (Yet Another Teacher), and Jayce Dempsey (Rakim).Also in this podcast, we note the discrepancy between Jess telling Nick in “Double Date” that she was good at volleyball but doesn't hit one ball correctly in this episode. Additionally, we reference this article that came out in 2014 discussing the writer's take on how they framed Coach vs. Winston. We did not find the bear this episode.While not discussed in the podcast, we noted other references in this episode when:Buster is trying to prove that he's from Wyoming, but he mentions the following references to Wyoming and other states in the US:Cowboy State - Wyoming is called the Cowboy State as it is known for its rodeo, the town where Hemingway spent time living and writing, and the inspiration for the series Longmire.Big Sky Country - Big Sky Country is another name for Montana which is known for its mountains, lakes, and wide-open country. The name refers to the abundance of wide-open spaces and skies without a horizon.Home of the Liberty Bell - The Liberty Bell, which is a symbol of freedom, is located in Pennsylvania in the Independence Hall. This episode got an 8/10 rating from Kritika whose favorite character was Winston and Kelly rated this episode a 7.5/10 and her favorite character was Coach!Thanks for listening and stay tuned for Episode 20!Music: "Hotshot” by scottholmesmusic.comFollow us on Twitter, Instagram or email us at email@example.com!Website: https://smallscreenchatter.com/

This podcast covers New Girl Season 3, Episode 18, Sister III, which originally aired on March 4, 2014 and was written by Camilla Blackett and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar. Here's a quick recap of the episode:In our third episode with Abby, Jess gets upset when she thinks that Abby and Schmidt are further along in their relationship than her and Nick, so they move in together. Meanwhile, Cece, and her new best friend Coach, are suspicious of Abby and try to get Schmidt to see it too.We discuss Pop Culture References such as:Garbage Pail Kids - Nick told Winston that Jess makes him put his Garbage Pail Kids in a box.The Little Match Girl - When Nick was wearing his nightshirt, Jess said he looked like the Little Match Girl. Additional Pop Culture References such as:[Nora] Ephron - Schmidt shared he needed a break from “Snora” Ephron. Nora Ephron was an American journalist, writer, and filmmaker who is best known for her romantic comedy films and was nominated three times for the Writers Guild of America Award and the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the movies Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally..., and Sleepless in Seattle. Ephron also directed films including her own screenplays like Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail, both starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.[The Trolley Song by Judy Garland] - Jess sang a portion of this song when she was in the hotel room, singing “Clang, clang, clang went the trolley | Ring, ring, ring went the bell”. "The Trolley Song'' is a song written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and made famous by Judy Garland in the 1944 film Meet Me in St. Louis. Blane and Martin were nominated for and lost the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 1945 Academy Awards, for "The Trolley Song". The song was ranked #26 by the American Film Institute in 2004 on the AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs list. We also mention a fun fact about this song in our Trivia section in the podcast. Children of Men - Schmidt was concerned they hit a car in a neighborhood where it looked like they filmed Children of Men. Children of Men is a 2006 dystopian action thriller film co-written and directed by Alfonso Cuarón. The screenplay was based on P. D. James's 1992 novel The Children of Men, which takes place in 2027 when two decades of human infertility have left society on the brink of collapse.This episode, we discuss who is most likely to make their own jewelry, move in to prove a point, sleuth to find out what someone is up to, and be ready for rapidfire questions. We also cover the scene between Nick and Schmidt around the Iroquois throat band Abby gifted Schmidt as our “Schmidtism”. For “Not in the 2020s” we talk about Winston's comments to the little boy and Nick pantsing Winston. We also discuss Cece apologizing to Schmidt as our “Yes in the 2020s”. Additionally, we explore the career of Ericka Kreutz (Elevator Woman), the guest star of this episode.Also in this episode were the following guest stars who we do not discuss in the podcast: Stone Eisenmann (Young Nick - Previously Discussed in S2E13), Jordan Fuller (Young Winston - Previously Discussed in S2E13), Linda Cardellini (Abby Day - Previously Discussed in S3E16), and Connie Sawyer (Oldest Woman in the World).We did not find the bear this episode.While not discussed in the podcast, we noted other references in this episode including:Iroquois - Schmidt clarifies that the jewelry that Abby made him is an Iroquois throat band. The Iroquois are of the Iroquoian people who are Indigenous to the Northeastern Woodlands and the Great Lakes of North America. The Iroquois Confederacy was believed to be founded between 1450 and 1660 by bringing together five different nations in the southern Great Lakes area, with each nation having its own language, territory, and function.Byzantine - When Jess is in the hotel, she asks if there are any films in the Byzantine era. The Byzantine Empire was the continuation of the Roman Empire in the East, continuing after the fall of the Western Roman Empire. It existed until the fall of Constantinople in 1453 to the Ottoman Empire. At the time, it was called the Roman Empire and only became called by the term “Byzantine” after the end of the realm. Approximately this time period covers 395 CE to 1453.Ethel Kennedy - In this episode, Jess tells Abby her insecurities around Nick and mentions that while she went to the hotel by herself, she watched a documentary about Ethel Kennedy. Ethel Kennedy is known for being an American human rights advocate and the widow of the late Robert F. Kennedy. She founded a non-profit charity and in 2014 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.When Jess and Nick are agreeing that they shouldn't live together, they mention both the pilgrims and the Plymouth Rock Massacre.Plymouth Rock - While there wasn't actually a massacre, Plymouth Rock is the site that marked where the Plymouth Colony was founded in December of 1620 when the Mayflower landed in the “New World”.Pilgrim - A pilgrim is used to describe a traveler who goes on a journey to a holy place. In this case, it referred to the Pilgrim Fathers who came to North America on the Mayflower to escape religious persecution in England.This episode got a 7/10 rating from both Kritika and Kelly; Kritika's favorite character was Cece and Kelly's favorite was Coach.Thanks for listening and stay tuned for Episode 19!Music: "Hotshot” by scottholmesmusic.comFollow us on Twitter, Instagram or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!Website: https://smallscreenchatter.com/

In this episode, Al interviews CeCe Cheng, founder of ShareWell, a mental health company that provides virtual peer support services (recorded 10-24-22). From the fall of 2019 through October 2020, CeCe found herself in an emotionally abusive relationship that included daily gaslighting, pathological lying, and severe manipulation. While CeCe had a strong support network of friends, family, and medical professionals, she had a sense that what she really needed was a support group of other women who had been through a similar experience. Struggling to find such a support group, CeCe created her own. From there, she founded ShareWell that allows people to find various support groups related to a multitude of topics from domestic abuse to trauma, to depression, and so much more. If one is unable to find a group that fits their need, they are able to create their own support group for that particular topic. CeCe shares her story of living through a severely emotionally abusive relationship and how she founded ShareWell. Find out more about CeCe and ShareWell by going to sharewellnow.com.

In today's Books with Hooks, Jessica and Kate join Carly and CeCe who critique their work, in the process discussing the important difference between a reader's curiosity about what happened before your pages started versus curiosity about what is going to happen in the novel; knowing exactly what you want your readers to be thinking after reading your first pages; the issues with having a protagonist that is too self aware at the beginning of a novel; the requirements when choosing between single and dual POVS; and the concept of the 'ick' factor.After which, Bianca chats with Amber and Danielle Brown, twin sisters and co-authors of Someone Had To Do It . They discuss the synergy between co-authors as they're developing characters and story; turning a script into a novel; making social and cultural commentary entertaining; drawing from your own life experiences; humanizing a really unlikable character to make them compelling; incorporating perfectly timed backstory; what to look for when choosing an editor and agent; and knowing when to say no to edits.Find us on our socials:Twitter: @TSNOTYAW @BiancaM_author @carlywatters @ceciliaclyraInstagram: @biancamarais_author @carlywatters @cece_lyra_agent @ the_shit_about_writingFacebook: @tsnotyawWebsites: www.theshitaboutwriting, www.biancamarais.com and www.carlywatters.com Amber and Danielle can be found at www.amberanddanielle.com and on Instagram at @amberanddanielle
