Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don't love us back. We're fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre'vell Anderson and Jarrett Hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).

One of my fave podcasts!

I love this show! The dynamic between Jarrett and Tre’vell is so fun and genuine. FANTI combines all of my favorite types of podcasts - it’s comedy, it’s pop culture news, it’s deep dives and academic analysis, it’s cool guests, it’s “friends just hanging out” vibes.

Loved the new “Swim Episode”! I immediately after listening shared a link with my bff who I’ve been trying to convince to learn how to swim since we were teens!
