Should there be an age limit on cappin?
Cappin is basically a term that means someone is lying, usually to make themselves look bigger/better than they are or to make excuses. This episode isn't to bash the woman I'm talking about, but there is something to learn from her mindset. Support the podcast: Thread Market Z Passport Papi 1800Contacts

Rant Mode: My response to a listener who was ghosted over 3 times!
Brought to you by Thread Market Z: https://bit.ly/3rwwoyr  Words from a Ghost Buster: If you're being ghosted by someone, don't continue to reach out, let them do the communicating next time. If it's not like that, take the hind and move on. This isn't to be mean, it's to spare you time and help you move forward easier. It's frustrating to hear things like this happen because you're being a glutton for punishment rather than exercising the options you do have. I'll consider speaking on this in another podcast episode, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out how to navigate the friend zone, there are some solid pointers in that episode. Until next time, say not to ghosts, they'll haunt ya.

Is College Necessary?
Use this link to check out the Udemy site mentioned in this episode. If you're interested in producing music like Frankarlo, use this Udemy link. I know people who are passionate about college, but I stand where I stand about school. Listen to this episode and ask yourself these 5 questions before taking that first step. Parents can take this and utilize it with your children. Go to the bottom of the Udemy site and see some of the companies that rely on the site for in-demand career skills for their team. Overall, look, research, and think before you leap. I hope this episode makes a positive impact on your decision of going to school, not going to school, or taking an alternate route.

NCAA's New Interim NIL Policy
This episode covers the new interim NCAA NIL policy for student-athletes making money while in college. I have been for this for years and voiced my opinion on it numerous times. It's safe to assume that EA might try their hand at college sports games again, but maybe not if it means paying the athletes. Fair is fair if they want to use their likeness, or they can come up with imaginary athletes which would defeat the purpose. This episode has been brought to you by: Baby Fu Clothing Co.
