Many of us have an idea of what we want to do when we grow up from the time we are small children. Some of us have experiences along the way that inform our future careers. Some of us just graduate from high school and start collge with no idea. Some of us choose majors, some majors are chosen for us by others. Regardless of how it happened, we have a major.
How do you know that major is the right one for you? Have you really stepped back to think about what you enjoy doing and what you would do if no one paid you to do it? What strengths and abilities translate into majors? What is a good fit?
This episode of Tassel to Tassel doesn't have the answers to those questions, but it does have suggestions for how to find them. Tune in to find out how.
Welcome to the inaugural episode for Mid-Major Madness, the podcast from the writers of Mid-Major Madness, the mid-major college basketball site at SBNation.

Plus a guest appearance from Charleston Southern coach Barclay Radebaugh.
"When The Drum Major Died" by Anjulle Floyd
Martin Luther King, Jr. has begun laying out plans for his Poor People’s Campaign. Florina Austin, newly married, spies a woman sitting on the steps leading up to the verandah where Florina and her husband will live. The woman’s uncanny knowledge of the space that Florina will inhabit leaves her suspicious.
The following Sunday after church, Florina witnesses the woman, she has come to know as Agnes, caress Redmond’s cheek. The look in Redmond’s eyes betrays longing. Florina and Agnes are neighbors. Their husbands, Negro doctors in Poinsettia, NC, hold prominent positions in the social and political life of their community. When Agnes flees to Memphis and joins the Sanitation Workers Protests, all are aghast, none more than Florina. As they move towards the fateful day Dr. Martin Luther King is killed, Florina learns that marriage exposes the vulnerabilities of all who pledge their trough and body. It casts an even greater shadow upon the ones who vow love unto death, and do not deliver what they have promised. When the Drum Major Died shows what happens when we resist change in favor of worn out tradition, but also what can and does occur when we open our hearts and embrace the words, “ … be first in love … be first in generosity … He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. …”

Special performance of DREAMSCAPE
Cesar Chavez Community Center Auditorium
2o60 University Ave. Riverside, CA
Dreamscape depicts the true story of the death and inner life of a young woman, "Myeisha Mills," who dreams through the impact of the twelve bullets that killed her. Through beat-boxing, spoken word and dance, the performance is structured around an autopsy report recited by a dispassionate coroner following the trajectory and impact of the bullets – each one triggering its own unique memory.
The season is finally here and we're ready at Mid-Major Madness. We'll slip into our regular weekly line up with the top games and teams to watch around the college landscape. We'll also tell you which "major" teams need to be on upset alert this week and debut our Mid-Major Game of the Week!
Actual basketball is in the books and we'll break down what's already happened and what to expect out of the next week of mid-major hoops.
Our guest will be Ryan Peters from Big Apple Buckets who will fill us in on what's going down in the NEC, MAAC, Patriot League, Ivy League, and America East.
While 34 years isn't a ripe old age, former Wunderkind Jess Merl has been redefining the word entrepreneur for many years starting when he launched not one, but two successful businesses.
As a graduate of De La Salle High School, which was made famous in the new movie When the Game Stands Tall, it should probably come as no surprise that Merl's latest endeavor Major League Fantasy, represents his first foray into the tech gaming world.
Of course merely entering the "game" in a competitive market such as fantasy sports leagues would not suffice for Merl. He had to do it differently and, he had to do it better than enyone before him.
With Major League Fantasy it appears he has done just that, in that beyond the industry buzz there is even talk about a reality television show based on his company from the Executive Producer of Undercover Boss and True Tori, Greg Goldman.
Joining me today to talk about Major League Fantasy is Jesse Merl.
