*This week we recorded a supersize episode on Black meme culture for the London Podcast Festival this past Sunday (9/5/21). To get access to the full show, you have until September 12th to watch it. The stream will be available to everyone who purchases a ticket. Just visit FANTIPODCAST.com for the link.*
In the meantime, please enjoy this abbreviated version featuring Shar Jossell who joins us to talk about Lil’ Nas X’s pregnancy pics and make predictions about what’s in store for our favorite characters in the final season of Insecure. Plus, the one and only Brittany Luse (co-host of For Colored Nerds podcast with Eric Eddings) weighs in on meme culture, and in particular Black meme culture–the good, the bad and the painful.
The live show featured lots of surprise guests, including producer extraordinaire Jordan Kauwling, a song association game hosted by Cor.ece, the first face-to-face listener feedback segments, an AMA, and dope graphics.

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).
