Episode notes

Although they’re both card carrying members of The BeyHive, neither jarrett nor Tre’vell have felt compelled to join a swarm and go after someone for criticizing Beyoncé. So why is it that certain fans–and fandoms–don’t show such restraint? That’s the subject of this week’s conversation.

Plus, it’s PSL (pumpkin spice latte) season. Tre’vell is wary of anything pumpkin flavored, but they’ve agreed to an on-air taste test w/ jarrett, trying out a couple of the seasonal menu items from Starbucks. Tune into the show for their verdict.

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).
