Our Editor's Take

Actress and influencer B. Simone has been building a steady following on social media. And in 2022, she moved into podcasting with The Know For Sure Pod. Her cohost on the podcast is her best friend, Megan Brooks.

B. and Megan have been best friends for almost two decades. Their real friendship is the primary factor behind The Know For Sure Pod. And because they have known each other for so long, there is no subject that the two will not bring up in their weekly conversations. Everything from plastic surgery to co-parenting are up for discussion.

The Know For Sure Pod host B. Simone is an actress, influencer, and comedian. She spent six seasons as a cast member on MTV's Wild N' Out. And she has also toured as a standup comedian alongside comedy legend Martin Lawrence. In addition to her creative ventures, she also owns a fitness and a beauty business.

Megan Brooks is not only B.'s best friend, but also her business partner and assistant. She is passionate about a variety of topics, including work-life balance. Megan is often there to offer support to her friend whenever she needs it, and B. is there to reciprocate. The genuine love these two have for one another as people is endearing to listeners. This makes The Know For Sure Pod a heartwarming show.

The Know For Sure Pod is not only hilarious, but heartfelt as well. The two work incredibly well together, and offer unique insights about being a Black woman in today's culture. B and Megan approach the audience as if they're not "fans," but more close friends. This results in a podcast that feels warm and sincere, even if the topic at hand is bold or explicit.

New episodes of The Know For Sure Pod premiere every Tuesday. For those looking for a fun, female-led comedy podcast to listen to, this one is a great addition to a playlist.

EP 10: Embracing Grace and Authenticity Pt. 2 (Ft.Norris Johnson II)
This week we’re back with Part 2! Join me Megan Ashley as I delve back into a heart-to-heart with our special guest Norris Johnson, an Instagram influencer with a radiant spiritual presence. Listen in as we explore the sacred act of self-reflection and the spiritual significance of facing our flaws in privacy, away from the scrutiny of the public eye. The journey of personal introspection can be confronting, but there is profound value in allowing God to illuminate our shortcomings in solitude, saving us from the potential embarrassment of public exposure. This private surrender isn't just about acknowledging our imperfections; it's about dying to our desires and living a life that embodies Christ's teachings, a theme that resonates deeply through our discussion on the true meaning of sacrifice and holiness.In our conversation, we also address the challenges of finding intimacy with God amidst the chaos of our personal dysfunctions, drawing parallels to the disruptive nature of vices like addiction and the way they can sever our connection to the divine. Sharing personal anecdotes, including a reflection on the impact of a praying mother, we unpack the concept of spiritual 'death'—the idea that we must become impervious to pride and the temptations of retaliation to maintain a Christ-like demeanor. This theme is woven into our examination of the transformative power of embracing a spiritual death, allowing Christ to live within us, and how this aligns with biblical teachings of sacrifice and service.Other topics you will hear:-Spiritual significance-Flaws-Dysfunction-Divine confirmation-Faith-Vices-Spiritual intimacy-Affirmation-Restoration,Thank you to our sponsors:Ritual Start Ritual or add Essential For Women 18+ to your subscription today.

EP 7: Confronting Deception
Deception — it's a powerful force that can distort our reality, affecting our relationships and overall well-being. Join Megan Ashley as she talks about "The Truman Show," and how she couldn't help but see parallels between Truman's life and her own struggles with identity in Christ, depression, and anxiety. This movie served as a catalyst to an exploration of the enemy's deceitful tactics, and how the power of truth can set us free.Much like Truman, we are often deceived from a young age. The enemy observes our habits, distorting our perception of reality to suit its sinister plans. Yet, we can overcome this through faith, as demonstrated by Truman's profound journey. Alongside the narrative of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, these stories offer valuable lessons about recognizing and pursuing our God-given desires, and the courage it takes to confront the chaos the enemy tries to create in our lives.We're all susceptible to deception, especially when it comes to relationships and decision-making. However, embracing the wisdom in God's word can help us avoid falling into these traps.Don't let the enemy deceive you - seek the truth, and let it set you free!Other topics you will hear:-Truth-Decision-making-Anxiety-Depression-Patterns-God-given desires-Relationships-Faith -CourageConnect with us:  @immeganashleyWebsite: https://www.themeganashley.com Youtube: In Totality  In Totality with Megan Ashley Is edited and produced by Idea to Launch PodcastsSign up for our PATREON for EXCLUSIVE access and additional:https://www.patreon.com/meganashleySee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
