Episode notes

Michael R. Jackson created the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning Broadway musical A Strange Loop, and he joins jarrett and Tre’vell for a nuanced conversation about making art that’s based on one’s own life…kinda. Michael doesn’t consider A Strange Loop to be autobiographical, so much as self-reverential.

Plus, in our Tough Question segment, jarrett asks if there’s something wrong with him because he doesn’t really miss people.

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).
