Episode notes

FANTI favorites Shar Jossell and Ryan Mitchell join jarrett and Tre’vell to talk Daytime TV. With veterans Ellen DeGeneres and Maury Povich being replaced by Jennifer Hudson and Karamo Brown respectively, the daytime airwaves are definitely Blacker, but are they better?  Or do new hosts Karamo, J Hud and Sherri Shepherd need to find ways to make these shows their own so they don’t feel so…derivative? This week’s panel doesn’t hold back, so strap in.

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).
