It's almost Thanksgiving, so it's time to reflect on this year and the things that have enriched our lives, taught us something new, or just helped us get through the hard spots. We are talking the parts of pop culture we are thankful for this year! My friend Barb Roose joins me for this conversation, and she not only has a lot to be grateful for but also a lot of insight into why and how pop culture adds value to our lives. Barb is a sought-after speaker, successful writer, and brilliant literary agent—as well as a fellow writer at (in)courage, the online community I've been with since 2009. So of course she has a lot to offer! And you know, because this is The Couch, where side notes and rabbit trails are always welcome, we certainly got off topic a bit. But it could not be helped. We needed to talk about faux leather jackets, high school plays, the necessity of naps, and our approaches to seasonal thermostat decision making. This is an especially fun episode too, because I asked you what you're thankful for this year and share some of your answers as well. Before we jump in, though, a quick reminder that time is running out to purchase your tickets to the Hooked on Holiday Movies LIVE Event coming up on the 19th. It's not too late to plan a road trip or girls night out (or both) and snag your tickets. Head over to HookedOnHolidayMovies.com to get them now! Okay, let's get started!

Welcome to Hooked on Movies. Our Spotlight shines with 3 Political Dramas. In this episode we will continue the series with a review of the 1976 release of All the President's Men --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/hookedonmovies/message
Guest: Grayson Frank Remember, if you “outkick your coverage” in finding a spouse, it means that she settled for someone “below” her - and that's not a compliment to her! Grayson - how, practically speaking, do I “find the girl”? Grayson's recommendation - let your family and friends “set you up” with someone they believe will be a good fit for your life! Is it possible (or even desirable) to remain a virgin before you get married? How important is “purity” before and during marriage? Dallas is the #1 city in America for marital infidelity - how sad is that?! How does a young man keep his way pure (Psalms 119:9)? What would you say to a young man who is sexually active before marriage, but wants to find the “right one” and then thinks he'll be monogamous in marriage? Grayson says that what you've started before marriage isn't going to change once you get married…so be careful! Dan - whenever you introduce sexual intimacy into a relationship, it acts as a “ceiling” for the emotional intimacy in that relationship. In other words, if you have sex on the first (second, third…) date, that's the emotional depth of that relationship. Grayson's recommendations: Sin festers in isolation - so build community and accountability! Communicate your expectations clearly - set your boundaries at the beginning, before you involve the emotions! Don't be “horizontal” - be aware of how your bodies are positioned! Don't be alone past a certain time - walls come down when you're tired. “Tuck your phone in bed” - be careful, porn is looking for you and it will cost you more than you're willing to pay in terms of purity and relational security. Physical intimacy in private can easily go too far - Grayson had a “don't kiss” unless you're in public to help guard their relationship! Understand that physical intimacy escalates as a relationship continues or you move from one relationship to another - evaluate what level of physical intimacy you're at and compare that with where you ought to be. From a biblical perspective (as designed by God), sex is the defining connection for a marriage relationship - what God has joined together, it's very difficult and damaging to separate! When some say that you need to have sex before marriage to make sure the relationship works out, that doesn't make sense if the quality of the person you're wanting to be in a relationship with is a “Rolls Royce”! Guys who don't communicate well with a girl will use physical touch to make a connection - and don't underestimate the power and connection of physical touch - check out Dr. Joe McIlhaney's powerful and important book Hooked. Guys, develop your communication skills so that you can engage in meaningful conversations with others, especially those of the opposite sex - this will help you navigate relationships where you desire to maintain a proper level of purity. One more thing can lower your inhibitions and put you in a situation to compromise your purity in a relationship - alcohol. Alcohol doesn't help you make good decisions - so be careful. It's better to be single wanting to be married…than married and wanting to be single. Finally, Training4Manhood is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donations are tax deductible.

You'll be hoping for a very long time, and is that OK with you? If you're giving yourself excuses to take action, hoping a Hijackal will change is often at the top of that list. Listen to the episode to see this all more clearly.. Don't abandon yourself by giving your life over to being hooked on hope! Hooked on hope actually means "addicted to the expectation for something you desire to happen." That might help you see the problem. HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS EPISODE:Why there is little hope a Hijackal will changeWhy the change required is to be the one who is changingWhy you may think it's best to "not give up on the relationship"Love-bombing vs. real, healthy loveI'm here to help.

I was HOOKED on this Stephen Spielberg documentary & as I heard this award winning pioneer of American film, the most successful director of all time talking abut his insecurities. How he felt alone as a kid & he used this loneliness behind the screen to build the connection with the audiences he was so hungry for. How true this is of so many of us. Using the thing that brought us to our knees to get us to a breakthrough to our own calling. Our guest today, Justin Schneck, is no different. I LOVE me an authentic, no bullshit genuine good purpose driven human & that's exactly what Justin is. Justin is the host of INC magazine top rated podcast, Growth Now Movement & founder of Growth Now Summits. Justin & I are two birds of the same flock. He had a 1.7 GPA, his mother battling an opiod addiction, his father in jail. The world labeling him as having no shot in the world. At age 19, h got introduced to personal development by a mentor who unlocked this hunger wihtin him to continue to learn & grow knowing that he had control over the outcome in his life. In this episode, you'll hear Justin talk to us about:The hard journey he had to go through to find love & how it came after he learned to love himself firstHe unpacks for us the 5 people we need to surround ourselves with & whyAnd the common denominator of the most successful people he's interviewed (which my friends, each & very one of you have & it's free) Connect with Justin:Growth Now Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/growth-now-movement-with-justin-schenck/id1086471656Growth Now Community: https://growthnowmovement.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/justintschenck/Connect with Meg:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/megan.b.miller/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/meganmillerintention
If you love holiday movies and reading romance novels, then I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you also love reading holiday romance novels! If so, this episode is for you. (And if you happen to love watching holiday movies but aren't as big a fan of reading romance, this episode is still for you, because we have some fun, behind-the-scenes information about how a certain holiday movie is being made.) Today I'm joined by my friend (and friend of the show), Katie Reid. Katie is a writer, a podcast host, and a singer/songwriter—and she is the author of a holiday romance novel that, you guessed it, is being adapted into a movie! So she gives us the scoop on that, then we talk about a few other holiday romance novels you might also enjoy. It's a good time, and will almost certainly bulk up your TBR list. Of course, because this is The Couch, where side notes and rabbit trails are always welcome, we also discuss seasonal reading, book clubs, hot drinks, and what to do when we just can't connect with a book. Before we jump into book talk, though, let's talk girls night out. Let's talk movie watching party. Let's talk live recording of this very podcast! Yes, I'm talking about the first-ever Hooked on Holiday Movies LIVE, and yes, you should absolutely come to this event! If you live in the Kansas City area or even if you're a few hours away (I'm talking to you, Des Moines, Omaha, St. Louis, and Oklahoma City), this is the event for you. Hooked on Holiday Movies Live is going to be the most fun holiday party of the season. There's no pressure at this party—no gift exchange where you have to figure out if you're supposed to bring a real gift or a gag gift. No boss (or worse, spouse's boss) to impress, no family to deal with, and if you aren't a crafty person, no craft projects to do! (To be clear, we will have a craft project for those who are interested, but I promise it is not required. Not at all!) And we'll have lots of other fun festivities—food, drinks, trivia, giveaways, time to watch a movie together (again, if you want), and we'll finish up with a live recording of The Couch Podcast. Friends, you don't want to miss this. Go to HookedOnHolidayMovies.com to get your tickets today! And then invite a friend! It's going to be a blast! All right, let's get to the show. MENTIONED IN THE SHOW: A Very Bavarian Christmas (free on Kindle Unlimited right now) Most of the books on this list NOT-SO-GUILTY PLEASURES: Hot chai latte made at home Putting down a book that I don't love DON'T FORGET: Join The Couch on Facebook! It's so much fun! Find Katie on Instagram, on her podcasts (The Martha & Mary Show), or at katiemreid.com. You can find me on Instagram or at marycarver.com. Welcome to The Couch!

The Day I Became a Hurricane (Hooked on Books Jamrock, 2022) is a children's educational book on hurricanes written by Dr. Rose-Ann Smith. Based on current research on natural disasters and disaster risk management, the book aims to educate children on the development of a hurricane and its impacts. It introduces them to hurricane preparedness while seamlessly interweaving an underlying story about self-acceptance and self-identity. The book therefore manages to accomplish a lot, not only imbuing practical knowledge about hurricanes, but also teaching children important life lessons concerning the perils of peer pressure and getting carried away with power, as well as the importance of accepting yourself for who you are. The book is meant for children in grades 1 to 5 but can be enjoyed by persons of any age who wish to learn more about hurricanes, serving as a very creative means of information dissemination on the topic. Dr. Smith holds a PhD in Human Geography. She is a lecturer and consultant in disaster risk management and climate change adaptation based at the Department of Geography and Geology, the University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. Dr. Smith is passionate about community development and community-based disaster risk management, with a strong focus on resilience building and sustainable livelihoods. Her other areas of interest include cultural tourism, eco-tourism, environmental management, and issues faced by indigenous populations and other highly vulnerable groups. She also believes that children are central to disaster risk reduction. The Day I Became a Hurricane is her first piece of children's literature, and marks the first in a series of books she hopes to develop to educate children on disasters. Aleem Mahabir is a PhD candidate in Geography at the University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. His research interests lie at the intersection of Urban Geography, Social Exclusion and Psychology. His dissertation research focuses on the link among negative psychosocial dispositions, exclusion, and under-development among marginalized communities in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

Remember a few weeks ago when my friend Kayla Craig joined me on The Couch to talk about the shows that are so good that we'd subscribe to their streaming networks just for them? Yeah? Do you remember how we were a little off the rails and a lot talkative and had so much to say that I promised a second installment of what we're now calling “a limited series”? Yeah? Well, this is that. We're back to talk more streaming services and more shows that keep us hitting the subscribe button. If you've been wondering what to watch on these streamers, we've got you covered! We also are a little wild in this episode, as Kayla had just reached an enormous writing deadline and I had, in a strange coincidence I'm still not over, spent the previous night in the emergency room with my daughter. Not the daughter I'd been in the ER with the night before recording our first episode together. Nope. Different day, different daughter. It's a weird time right now. (Note: Everyone is fine. Just a little broken arm for one and a migraine for the other. They're resilient and recovering.) Thankfully, this is The Couch, where side notes and rabbit trails are always welcome, so when Kayla and I got distracted by talk of games on our phones, candle scents, and even Jessica Simpson's memoir, it was okay. Before we get started . . . have you bought your tickets for the live, in-person Hooked on Holiday Movies event coming up?

“Das Internet vergisst nie.” Das dürften sich auch die Entwicklerinnen und Entwickler von Rockstar Games gedacht haben, die derzeit an GTA 6 arbeiten. Denn leider ist es einem Hacker gelungen, Spielszenen des noch früh in der Entwicklung befindlichen Open-World-Spiels an die Öffentlichkeit zu tragen. Doch egal wie sehr es Rockstar Games und Publisher Take Two auch versuchen: Diese Szenen werden für immer im Internet existieren. Dabei waren diese Bilder doch aus gutem Grund nicht für die Öffentlichkeit gedacht, zeigen sie doch die Entwickler-Umgebung und nicht das polierte Gameplay, das sich Fans von der großen Marke sonst versprechen. Fehlgeleitete Diskussionen über die Qualität des Spiels können dabei den Entwicklungsprozess stören und zurückwerfen. Aber nicht nur das: Wie sich Leaks intern auf ein Team auswirken, wollen wir heute in einer weiteren Folge Press Select ergründen, dabei aber auch ein wenig auf die Rolle der Spiele-Presse eingehen: Intensiviert die die Folgen von Leaks nur noch mehr, wenn darüber berichtet wird? Oder gehört es sogar zu ihrem primären Aufgabenbereich, Leaks zutage zu fördern? Das und mehr diskutieren wir heute mit unseren Gästen Robin Schweiger von Hooked, Jan Theysen von KING Art Games und Fabian Käufer von Rocket Beans.
What does a three-pound brain have to do with one’s sex life? A lot, actually. Today our guest, a board certified ob/gyn, will share the science of how casual sex affects human development.

Texas born songwriter Mark James first came to prominence penning Hooked on a Feeling, a top hit for B.J. Thomas and later for Blue Swede. However, his biggest career mark occurred when Elvis Presley cut his song "Suspicious Minds" landing a monster #1 hit around the world. Enjoy this Legends show with this exclusive conversation with Hall of Fame Songwriter Mark James as he unpacks the song and writing collaboration of Always on My Mine, Song of the Year and Grammy winner.
You may have noticed that I'm a big fan and proponent of family movie nights. I've talked about it with friend of the show, Jenny Rapson, and sneak the topic into just about every conversation I can. So you will not be surprised to hear I have found a family movie night EXPERT and invited her to The Couch! Jennifer Borget is a blogger and award-winning digital content creator, as well as the founder of the Movie Night Journal. She and her husband and their three kids love movies and have got this thing down to a science—which is lucky for us, because today she's sharing all kinds of tips and ideas for making movie nights a success for the entire family. Of course, because this is The Couch, where side notes and rabbit trails are always welcome, Jennifer and I also talk about having husbands who work nights, different types of candy corn, and what we're watching after the kids go to bed.

I never experienced a family vacation as a child. When my youngest was 2 in 2015 we took our first family vacation. My girls have celiac disease and are on special diets. My son is hearing impaired. For the first time in my life we went somewhere (WDW) and I experienced pure magic and frustration free vacationing from the magic and ease of getting accommodations for their dietary needs with little effort. From then on it became our go to family vacation because once we entered the Disney bubble we were truly able to relax and spend time together as a family.”Pixie Stephanie had this to share as well: “I think this is wonderful! My dad definitely gave me my start! We went to Disney every single year if we could. He continued the tradition after Addy came along. We go every year at Christmas now.

Yep, we're old! We were the lucky ones that grew up watching all the OG creations with the magical hope and excitement of what is next as the legends and stories came to be On screen as art, not live action remakes. Every story was fresh and new. We saw the evolution of animation to CGI. So Disney was life to aspire to hopes and dreams and being heros and fairy-tale love ideals for when we came to be a...

This is a segment of time from a clearing deep in the Forest of Dean. Echoing birds in full voice. Soft hushing breezes in high treetops. Then, over time, a band of fresh summer rain, falling in rich spatial detail over countless broad-leaved trees. It's a natural environment. The sort of place people travel to, to get away from it all. To get a dose of green health, because it ticks all the boxes. It's remote. Proper countryside. Far away from major roads and industrialised, built-up areas. So, a place where unnatural noise should be almost non-existent. To get here we travelled several hundred miles by train with our audio equipment, staying in the Gloucestershire town of Lydney. We covered the last five miles on foot. We found the same tree we recorded from back in 2019 and set our mics beside it to record on their longest mission so far. Hooked up to a huge battery, we left them alone to record non-stop over a four-day period. We imagined how we'd capture the sounds of woodcock on their twilight roding flights. Owls hooting in the dead of night. Brilliantly songful dawn choruses. Hours of pure birdsong in the warm daylight. All pure and free of human-made noise. We have managed to capture these amazing sounds, but what's also revealed is just how much human-made noise there is too. We've not been able to find natural daytime quiet lasting for more than about 15 minutes. From aircraft to the exhaust sounds of motorbikes and other motor transport, the sound-feel of the forest is strongly shaped by unnatural things. The natural environment is recognised as vitally important to our health and wellbeing, but it's highly permeable to unnatural noise which can carry over many miles. Its effect on the experience of being within nature can be heard in this episode, particularly over the first five minutes. It shows how just one passing motorbike becomes the main sound feature of the forest for a significant portion of time. How the number of journeys that people make, in that area and the design of the machines they use, combine over time to interrupt and break up the forest's own natural sound presence.
In this episode we talk with bestselling author and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal @nirandfar on what it means to be ‘Indistractible', and how we as writers can master our internal and external triggers, make time for our writing, and build more productive, successful, and creative writing lives. Nir also shares how he built his audience and his email list, why he crowd-edited his book with over 500 readers, and how he stays engaged with his readership.*ABOUT NIR EYALNir Eyal writes, consults, and teaches about the intersection of psychology, technology, and business. Nir previously taught as a Lecturer in Marketing at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford. He is the author of two bestselling books, Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life.*QUOTES BY NIR EYAL:“All human behaviors are prompted by a desire to escape discomfort, which means that time management is pain management…Money management is pain management. Weight management is pain management.Fundamentally, if you don't figure out what are those internal triggers that spur you to escape? If you don't figure out what those are and learn to deal with it, if you don't master them, they will become your masters”*RESOURCES:Twitter:@nireyalNir's website and blog: https://www.nirandfar.com/Nir's books: Hooked (UK, US) and Indistractable (UK, US)Book 15-minute office hours with NirFree 80-page supplemental Indistractable workbookCan Someone with ADHD be ‘Indistractable'?Nir's Podcast: Nir And Far - Business, Behaviour and the BrainNir's email: email@example.com*For show notes, transcripts and to attend our live podcasts visit: podcast.londonwriterssalon.comFor free writing sessions, join free Writers' Hours: writershour.com*FOLLOW LONDON WRITERS' SALONTwitter: twitter.com/WritersSalonInstagram: instagram.com/londonwriterssalonFacebook: facebook.com/LondonWritersSalon

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be an actual scholar of your favorite author or book? To spend your days diving deep into the background of how a beloved story came to be and then getting to share everything you've learned with people who love the book, the author, the entire story as much as you do? Well, I'll be honest and tell you I hadn't thought about this before, but now I'm obsessed. My friend Melissa Zaldivar is on The Couch this week to talk with us about Little Women, Louisa May Alcott, and Orchard House (the home Alcott lived in and where she set the events of Little Women). As a tour guide of the Orchard House, Melissa is an expert on all of this and generously shares her insights and expertise with us. She's also an editor and a writer, as well as both fun and thoughtful. You're going to love getting to know her. Of course, because this is The Couch, where side notes and rabbit trails are always welcome, Melissa and I do touch on college majors, plastic pumpkins, and “witness houses,” a term that was new to me but makes so much sense.
