In this week’s episode, jh and Tre’vell take a look at Morgan Cooper’s chocolatey Bel Air on Peacock, a reimagining of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air as a drama. They’ve got thoughts on the more dramatic tone and differences between the original cast, and the new one. Plus, the hosts of the podcast The Super Secret Bestie Club, Curly Velasquez and Maya Murillo, are the perfect guests for a conversation on astrology. According to jh–and unbeknownst to Tre’vell–this episode is ten years in the making. Capricorns may object to how they’re characterized.
**ATTN Johannesburg, South Africa listeners**

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).
