In the past few years what it means to be a collegiate athlete has changed dramatically ever since the NCAA changed it rules regarding Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL). Previously, student athletes were not allowed to profit off of their own NIL, but now they are, which has led to a rise of brand deals being promoted on social media and other collaborations of the sort.

Just recently, USAT has announced the creation of the Watch Us Thrive Collective for NCAA women's triathlon. On the podcast this week Grace Norman, who is an ambassador for this program, tells us about what it is, as well as how it helps support the goal triathlon becoming a fully fledged NCAA championship sport.

In our second interview, we hear from Kennedy Calcagno, who just finished her freshman year doing triathlon at TCU. Not only has she had an NIL deal herself, but she also took a business class this year all about NIL. She explains to us how she went about getting a deal, what she had to do, and the various types of opportunities that are available to student athletes.
