This week’s episode was recorded before a live (virtual) audience as a special thanks to those listeners who are contributing members to FANTI. The listener email segment is actually viewer questions and comments made during the recording.
In addition, we’ve got returning guest Brooke Obie who wrote a piece in xoNecole showing the various ways Black people can’t win in the Marvel Cinematic Universe…even as they win at the box office.
For FANTI’s main topic conversation, Tre’vell wanted to explore the culture of gratitude, in part because they observed that jarrett is “in an era” of gratitude. So who and what is gratitude for? How does it show up in our lives?

About the show
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).
