*Awkward conversation warning*
This week jarrett and Tre’vell get personal about their lives in the time of ‘Rona. Since it emerged in 2020, COVID pandemic’s death toll is staggering, with over an estimated 18 million people globally. We also know the toll it’s taken on our mental health, and have yet to understand its long-term health impacts. But the impacts on an individual level? That’s when it can get complex and complicado. How do you talk about the pandemic if it’s left you relatively unscathed? Or if you’ve…thrived? These are just a few of the issues that jarrett and Tre’vell grapple with, and they’re bracing themselves for all y’all’s responses.

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).
