It’s finally here, the long awaited…*drum roll please*…Copaganda episode! That’s right, our hosts were finally able to have a sit down with Tia Oso, the executive director of BLD PWR Productions, and Dr. Jared Loggins, Assistant Professor of Black Studies at Amherst College and co-author of Prophet of Discontent: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Critique of Racial Capitalism to discuss the effects Copaganda has on audiences and its insidiousness. But first – what y’all bringing to the Donald Trump is Going to Jail Party? And don’t say plates and napkins!

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).
