Show Notes

Hosts Atoya Burleson and Tia Avril are knowing their worth on the insideLINES Podcast! 

First up, the ladies are fresh off a jam packed holiday weekend! After a pretty low key Thanksgiving dinner, Tia and her sisters traveled to Miami to celebrate her mom’s 60th birthday. The trip included enjoying some amazing food as well as some entertainment at the #1 Drag Bar & Restaurant in Miami called Palace. Meanwhile, Atoya was in full hosting mode all weekend! The Burleson household entertained some friends from college, and they participated in a variety of activities including attending the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and watching the Burleson boys compete in their first football State High School Championship game!

Next up, it's time for Hot Takes! This week, Atoya and Tia tackle an incident that occurred during the LA  Lakers vs Indiana Pacers game the day before Thanksgiving. During overtime, Lebron James had 2 fans removed for using obscene language towards him. It was later revealed that the fans made several comments including stating, “I hope Bronny dies in a car wreck.” The ladies address the questions: (1) Do other players have the ability to exercise this right? and (2) Are fans taking things too far? Leave us a voicemail and Let us know your thoughts at   

Lastly, the ladies welcome Amber Sabathia, certified Player Agent with CAA and Executive Director of the PitCCh In Foundation. Amber chats with the ladies about her journey of becoming a MLB agent after playing a major role in her husband and World Series Champion, CC Sabathia's career. She also shares what it’s like being black in baseball, the importance of knowing your worth, and the story behind creating and being the executive producer for Under the Grapefruit Tree: The CC Sabathia Story. The ladies also discuss overcoming challenges associated with her family adjusting to Amber’s new demanding career.
