Show Notes

Hosts Atoya Burleson and Tia Avril are working through it on the insideLINES Podcast! 

First up, the ladies chat about their weekend, which was packed full of kids’ sporting events. Atoya’s boys won their final football playoff game and are heading to state this weekend! She also got into the holiday spirit over the weekend putting up her tree and holiday decor. Tia’s oldest kicked off his AAU basketball season over the weekend so she spent a majority of the weekend in the gym. She also chats about avoiding a holiday scam that popped up (again)!

Next in Hot Takes, the ladies discuss the lack of accountability in incidents involving both Britt Reid and Kyle Rittenhouse. Britt Reid, son of the Kansas City Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid, was charged earlier this year with driving while intoxicated after he crashed into two vehicles days before the Chief’s Super Bowl appearance. The Kansas City Chiefs released a statement last week stating that the organization would be covering the medical and long term expenses for a young child critically injured in the crash. Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted last week in the case involving the Illinois teen who murdered two BLM protestors in Kenosha, WI. Kyle claims the shootings occurred in self defense as he feared for his life. The ladies (along with Producer Scott) dive into these and give honest takes on lack of fairness and justice as well as the justice system that serves one group differently than another.

After that heavy hot take, the ladies bring some warm light to the show by bringing Jericka Duncan, national news correspondent for CBS News and the Sunday edition of the "CBS Weekend News" on to the show. Jericka chats about her humble beginnings in media and the challenges associated with covering and then detaching herself from traumatic stories. She also shares how she navigates motherhood and dating all while having a high performing career! She also reveals her early ambitions in music and her not-so-secret music crush.
