Rex and Craig this week dive into the Astros stirring three game run to clinch the 2022 World Series and review how many players started their professional careers with meager signing bonuses, were low round draft picks or were acquired by Houston for a song. Meanwhile, Houston as seen over $600 million in guaranteed player contracts walk out their door - and they keep finding replacements and keep winning. At least so far.Check It OutRex: The Canadian metal band Caldron's 2012 single "Nitebreaker"Craig: Black Box Recorder's Luke Haines and REM guitarist Peter Buck released their second album, "All the Kids are Super Bummed Out" on Cherry Red Records.

In today's Books with Hooks, Carly and CeCe are joined by two authors, Melissa and Elizabeth, whose work they critique. In the process, they discuss ensuring each that timeline in a dual timeline is its own story; keeping scenes condensed to keep propelling the story forward; mentioning the pandemic in contemporary fiction; baking in subtle references to things instead of explaining them to the reader; finding ways for a character to interact with other characters, especially when we'll be spending a lot of time in their head; making small cuts to decrease word count; how not naming dramatic moments that change everything could mean losing agent request opportunities; telling the reader what's going to happen vs letting them theorize; and ensuring you surprise the reader with something in the first chapter.After which, Bianca chats with Jennifer Hillier, bestselling author of Things We Do in the Dark, about writing away real-world fears and anxieties; how she writes and includes/doesn't include backstory; how she structures her novels without the use of an outline; having no ego when receiving critiques; and the importance of planting curiosity seeds.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 Jennifer can be found at www.jenniferhillierbooks.com and on Instagram at @jenniferhillierbooks

Most of us understand the meaning of the term “hook” in the context of a catchy song or piece of writing, but when did we start using it for college applicants? Amy and Mike invited educational consultant Aly Beaumont to explain what “unhooked” means in admissions. What are five things you will learn in this episode? What exactly is a "hook" in college admissions parlance? Why do institutional priorities carry so much weight in admissions? Are hooks the same from one college to another? Is there really anything like a completely unhooked student?  How can an unhooked applicant improve their odds of being accepted? MEET OUR GUEST Aly Beaumont is the founder of Admissions Village, a family focused, affordable, one-on-one college guidance consultancy. Aly is deeply committed to making the college admissions process less stressful, and her success with this objective can be measured by both the growing number of referrals she receives as well as the repeat business of family siblings. Aly is also a founder and advisor to The College T, a website connecting high school students with college students and recent graduates so that first-hand information and experiences can be shared. Aly is a graduate of Tufts University where she majored in History with a concentration in Modern Women and African American History, and was captain of the Equestrian Team. She lives in Wilton, CT with her husband Perry, their two dogs Buddy and Buzz and their three sons. Two of their sons are currently in college at The University of St. Andrews in Scotland and Keyon College in Ohio, and one graduated from Santa Clara University. Aly is an Associate member of IECA and she has her certificate as an Independent Educational Consultant from the University of California Irvine. Aly previously appeared on this podcast in episode 212 to discuss PREPARATION FOR HIGHLY SELECTIVE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS, episode 341 to discuss COURSE SELECTION FOR HIGHLY SELECTIVE ADMISSIONS, and was the subject of an IEC PROFILE in episode 264.

Date: November 2, 2022Name of podcast: Backstage Pass RadioEpisode title and number:  S3: E15: Clint Woolsey & James Beau Edwards (Stone Senate) -Dusk, Dawn, & Down Home HooksArtist Bio -Stone Senate has been called “a heavier version of Lynyrd Skynyrd, crossed with The Allman Brothers Band”. While being mentioned in such heady company is flattering, one thing Stone Senate is most definitely not, is a retro act. They are taking what came naturally from their collective influences a step further.Fronted by lead vocalist/guitarist Clint Woolsey's smoldering, soulful vocals and unmistakable stage presence, stage left and stage right are burning with dual lead guitars of James Edwards and Ted Hennington. Add to these the blood bonded rhythm section of “The Mud Brothers”- Paul Zettler on bass/vocals and David Zettler on drums/vocals and you have caught lightning in a bottle.Having been together since 2012, the band has built a loyal following through a relentless year round touring schedule, that has enabled them to widen their collective set list of band and audience favorites, “Right Side Up” (2014), “Martha” (2016) and “Lazy River” (2016), of Country and Rock legendary songs, like the George Strait cover of “The Fireman” (2020), new original music from their EP “Dusk” (2021), with the singles “Whiskey Helps”, “Slow Crusade” and “Down”, and coming in 2022, the Toby Wright produced record, “Between the Light and Dark”.With over 600 shows throughout the US in the last few years, Stone Senate is steadily adding more and more dates each year and looking forward to some great new music in 2022!Sponsor Link:WWW.ECOTRIC.COMBackstage Pass Radio Social Media Handles:Facebook - @backstagepassradiopodcast @randyhulseymusicInstagram - @Backstagepassradio @randyhulseymusicTwitter - @backstagepassPC @rhulseymusicWebsite - backstagepassradio.com and randyhulsey.comArtist Media Handles:Website - www.stonesenate.comInstagram  - https://www.instagram.com/stonesenateFacebook - https://www.facebook.com/stonesenateTwitter - https://twitter.com/stonesenateCall to actionWe ask our listeners to like, share, and subscribe to the show and the artist's social media pages.

Farm Friday for the Houston Astros! There's a ton of outfielders in this system, at every level. In Single-A Fayettville (NC), the Woodpeckers, 2022 draftees Drew Gilbert (#3), Jacob Melton (#4), and Ryan Clifford (#13) patrolled the outfield to backup RHP Alex Santos (#14). In Hi-A, the Asheville Tourists, Colin Barber (#16) flashed his new, simplified swing and showed he can play anywhere in the outfield. Double AA Corpus Christi, The Hooks, is full of elevated fastballs from RHPs Spencer Arrighetti (#7), Jamie Melendez (#10), and Jayden Murray (#18). Triple-A Sugar Land (the Space Cowboys!) has - wait for it - more outfielders, with OF/SS Pedro Leon (#5) and Justin Dirden (#9) polishing their games before heading to MLB, where they'd join top prospects RHP Hunter Brown (#1), and catchers Yanier Diaz (#2) & Korey Lee (#6).

In today's Books with Hooks, Carly and CeCe each review two query letters, in the process discussing overexplaining and taking the readers out of the scene; leaning into your scene from a reader's perspective; having a very clear idea of the major dramatic question that is specific to the protagonist's plot journey; prioritizing a character's interiority over their noticing other characters' reactions to things; avoiding head-hopping; ensuring specific details are where they need to be placed; starting in the right place; making sure your character has a goal of some sort in the opening pages; connecting with zingy social commentary in a story; and  integrating setup within the action of the story.After which, Bianca chats with Richard Osman, multi-million copy bestselling author of The Thursday Murder Club series, about why his novels have appealed to such a wide demographic; how he came up with his premise; why he chose the POV structure for the novel that he did; writing social commentary subtly; techniques for making readers connect with so-called unlikeable characters. Find us on our socials:Twitter: @TSNOTYAW @BiancaM_author @carlywatters @ceciliaclyraInstagram: @biancamarais_author @carlywatters @cece_lyra_agent @ the_shit_about_writingFacebook: @tsnotyawWebsite: www.biancamarais.com and www.theshitaboutwriting.Richard can be found at @richardosman on Twitter.Leftie's podcast can be found at: https://leftie-aubes-writing-podcast.simplecast.com/

Sometimes, when we don't have hope ourselves or haven't learned it yet, looking to someone who does can help us along the path. This week's guest grew up in Detroit, Michigan in the 1980s and 1990s in a time of turmoil and racism for Black residents. But she watched her father first thrive in his career, then turn to mindfulness and hope as he battled for his life after a multiple sclerosis diagnosis and subsequent car accident.As Shawntà Hooks shares, if someone who seemingly has no reason to be hopeful demonstrates hope, it sets an example of so many possibilities. She took what she learned from her father and the sudden death of her mentor and build on that knowledge to bring hope and mindfulness into her work.Listen in as Shawntà talks about how she helps others get past the roadblock of the language around mindfulness and how the idea of teaching mindfulness to her young son brings her hope. So inspiring!About Shawntà Hooks:Shawntà Hooks's mission in life is to help people increase their capacity as leaders, innovators, and compassionate human beings. After 20 years of corporate experience, it dawned on her that she had never meditated at work, for the purpose of work. Sure, she had attended yoga classes at work and wellness seminars, but she had never experienced a corporate learning offering that linked the benefits of mindfulness to corporate and DE&I strategy. Shawntà found this puzzling because science was finally beginning to explain the drastic improvements meditators experience in areas of focus, agility, resilience, compassion, and critical thinking – all key ingredients to strategy execution. As a result, she created Mindful Culture Creators™ during the COVID-19 pandemic as a space for employees to learn how to embed mindfulness into the way they work so that their work is more meaningful and productive (aka, more effective and efficient).Mentioned In This Episode:Mindful Culture Creators™Follow Shawntà on InstagramJim Carrey MIU Commencement SpeechWellness WebinarExpert in Hope
