We’ll be mixing things up a bit this year, make sure you are subscribed to our podcast wherever you listen and follow us on social media for the latest news @insidelinespodcast on Instagram and Facebook.

Next, it’s on to storytime as Atoya tells the tale of how she almost got stuck in the Dominican Republic over the weekend. After traveling down for a friend’s birthday, one of the party guests tested positive for COVID! Tune in to find out what happened! 

Then, it’s on to Hot Takes where Atoya and Tia are joined by Producer Scott as they discuss the speculation around Tom Brady’s retirement. In case you missed it, ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news of Tom’s retirement which of course became the headline for numerous news sources. Next came a plethora of congratulatory messages including one from Tom’s company, TB12’s twitter account….Then came the doubts because Tom himself did not announce it. The three share their thoughts on if Tom will really retire, what Giselle will do if he does NOT hang up his cleats, and if Tom Brady is truly the GOAT!

Finally, the ladies welcome journalist and TV host Cari Champion to the show! A former ESPN Sports Center and First Take anchor,  Cari chats with the ladies about how she got her start in journalism and co-hosting the shows Stick to Sports with her good friend Jemele Hill and her podcast Naked with Cari Champion. She shares why she started her foundation, Brown Girls Dream, a program created as an informal support system for high potential young women of color. Cari also discusses the importance of depicting black stories more accurately, why she left ESPN, and much more!
