This week, for no particular reason at all, hosts jarrett and the now-single Tre’vell get into the complex and complicado of romantic break-ups. They tackle questions like: Is it okay to date a friend’s ex? Is it fair to expect mutual friends to choose a side in the break-up? Can exes be friends with each other? Was the phone-throwing a sign a break-up was imminent?
Plus, they’ll detail some of the things they’ve learned about each other while collaborating on Historically Black Phrases, and give us an update on the book’s status.

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).
