Show Notes

Hosts Atoya Burleson and Tia Avril are digging deep on the insideLINES Podcast! 

Atoya and Tia shake things up a bit with a new segment called “Asking For A Friend!” The ladies tackled some questions sent in by listeners via the insideLINES voicemail. If YOU would like to have your questions answered live as well, leave us a voicemail at

Then, it’s on to Hot Takes we’re the ladies share on rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly’s interview on the Drew Barrymore Show. Kelly was promoting his new nail polish line when he opened up about being tired of smiling on days when he doesn’t actually feel like smiling. Tia and Atoya share their thoughts on if they think entertainers should have to continue to wear a mask for fans and supporters. 

Lastly, the ladies welcome realtor, philanthropist, and president of The Kwamie Lassiter Foundation, Ericka Lassiter. Ericka, wife of the late NFL defensive Back Kwamie Lassitor, served for 12 years as president of the Off the Field Women’s Association, an organization created to support players’ significant others as they navigated their journey in the NFL. Ericka chats with the ladies about her experience caring for her son who was diagnosed with and then cured of sickle cell anemia. She also discusses what life has been like after the sudden loss of her husband in 2019 and finally stepping back in order for her to grieve properly. Ericka also reveals her plans of writing a book to share her life story.
