Fall 20 Ep 11: Fix My Sibling
Classmates, we've seen the dynamics of sibling relationships played out on tv and other media but more recently, Da Brat and LisaRaye had a cringe-worthy public spat that made most of us reminisce on our own sibling connections. With this year's inactive holiday season, there's no time like the present to reflect on the shared bonds or disconnect you may feel in your relationships with your siblings. In this episode Anthony Jay and Chantel discuss the characteristics of sibling birth order and how family relationships are nurtured within these age and order boundaries. It's note taking and journal prompt time with No Class Podcast! Email: no.classpodcast@gmail.com IG/Facebook: No Class Podcast Tumblr: No-ClassPodcast Twitter: no_classpodcast

Historically, mental health has been a taboo topic in communities of color, especially within the Black community. In recent years we've seen more #selfcare days, less therapy shaming and more people of color openly sharing their mental health regimen. As we see more celebration and discussion of mental health in the mainstream, we noticed a topic that is often dismissed or excluded from the conversation...MASTURBATION!

Spring 19 Ep 5: The Psychology of Money Management
Do you ever experience not having enough money to live comfortably until the next paycheck? Have you ever borrowed money or used credit cards to pay for an emergency expense? At some point in time, if you haven’t had either one of these experiences, you probably will. We get it--the American financial system is run by debt and borrowing, but that doesn’t necessarily make it a good thing. Unfortunately, there are negative psychological effects that impact an individual’s quality of life based on their relationship with money, debt, and the lack of education in how to better manage money. In this episode we discuss the behaviors and thoughts behind managing money and the impact money has had on the ways in which we handle our personal finances.
