The Poster Boy Podcast
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
Season 2, Ep. 2
Most people think of failure as not making lots of money, but the reality is that failure means something different to each individual.
For me, failure is having a 9 to 5 job because it means I’m sacrificing my freedom. As long as I’m able to pay the bills while maintaining my freedom to be able to go where I want and work when I want, I’m living a successful life.
For others though, failure may be losing that 9 to 5 job, because success for them is stability.

Monopoly - How it began....
Season 3, Ep. 3
This podcast explores the origins and interesting facts surrounding the popular board game, Monopoly. The game's origin story dates back to 1903 when an American anti-monopolist named Elizabeth Magie created a board game called The Landlord's Game. It was a hit, and in 1935, Charles Darrow sold the patent to the Parker Brothers, who then paid Magie for her patent. Monopoly has since become a family classic, and millions of dollars of Monopoly money are printed every year. The podcast also highlights Monopoly's role in World War II and its use by British soldiers to plan escapes from German prisoner of war camps. Finally, it discusses the many record-breaking feats achieved while playing Monopoly, including the longest games played in unusual places, such as underwater, in a treehouse, or upside down.

The Labor Force Pandemic
Season 3, Ep. 2
If I see another “Now Hiring” sign, or better yet, a sign that says expect bad service because we are short staffed at a restaurant, I’m going to lose my mind. The world is different today, and there is no denying it. I’m pretty sure this statement officially makes me somewhat old. But I remember the days when getting a job was a big deal, because so many people applied for that job. Today people treat applying for jobs like online dating… They “apply” for everything, and even if they find a job, they keep looking for a different one and will jump ship faster than any other time in history. The interview process is so bad for us at my poster company, that the first question we have to ask people during an interview is: “Do you know what job you’re interviewing for?”

Peeling Back the Layers: Exploring the Fascinating History and Mystery Behind Dr Pepper's Name
Season 3, Ep. 1
The podcast talks about the history of sodas, which were originally developed as medicine in the 1800s. The oldest carbonated soft drink company in American history, Dr Pepper, got its start in 1885 at a pharmacy in Waco, Texas. The drink was created by a pharmacist named Charles Alderton, who developed a syrup that he could add to the soda fountain, and it was sold as a tonic that could help cure stomach ailments and pains and increase vitality and vigor. The soda was a hit and became a huge success, especially after being introduced at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. There are different stories about how Dr Pepper got its name, including one that involves a man dedicating the drink to the father of the girl he was trying to marry.
