Will is new to journalism and is looking forward to writing a variety of different stories. He is a junior, plays soccer, and runs track. He also has many other interests including meteorology, urban planning, and reading fantasy books. When he is not playing soccer or working out, he is drawing, reading books, playing with his brothers, or hanging out with friends.
Ava Stone is a senior on the graphics team, and this is her second year as a member of the Stampede and she hopes to expand her roles into photography and writing as well as graphics. Some of her hobbies include graphic design, photography, reading, writing, and hanging out with friends. She also enjoys making money at her two jobs: Jojo's Shake Bar and Naperville Yard. After she graduates she hopes to go to college to study psychology.

    I was never a huge fan of hockey, but this was a truly RIVETING podcast. Well done gentlemen!

      While it’s great that you found the podcast “riveting,” it’s baffling that you feel the need to qualify your enjoyment by stating your indifference towards hockey. It’s important to recognize that not everyone shares the same protuberating interests, and your unnecessary disclaimer comes off as dismissive of a sport that many people are passionate about. Your comment would have sufficed without the jab at hockey. Let’s keep the discourse respectful and avoid belittling others’ interests in the future. It’s also worth mentioning that your grammar is offensive to the morals of the English language. The forgotten comma in your last sentence is a prime example that the education system does not work for everyone.

        During President Biden’s State of the Union address last night, he announced that one goal of his administration is to ensure that every child in the United States is able to read before third grade. His words left me dumbfounded. How could a developed nation such as the United States struggle with such a third world problem? However, upon reading your comment, it is abundantly clear to me that literacy rates among high school students in the US is experiencing a sharp decline. Perhaps a reexamination of my original comment is required. The intent of my opening sentence was not to insult connoisseurs of hockey, but rather to compliment the fine young staff of Metea Media. In spite of my lack of awareness surounding this sport (which has clearly left an impression on young Canadians such as yourself), these talented aspiring journalists have managed to captivate my attention for twenty three minutes and fifteen seconds. Their passion is contagious and strongly appealed to listeners who were outside of their original intended audience. For that, I applaud them. The fact that one could misconstrue my pure and genuine act of kindness toward these gentlemen as an insult speaks greater volumes regarding your worldview than about my character. It is clear that there is only one Metea Media Pick in this comment section.
