Jarrett’s still on vacay, but don’t worry, baby. We’ve got the one and only Dr. Jon Paul sitting in for him. They and Tre’Vell will tell you why Dave Chappelle’s The Closer isn’t just jokes, and why the Netflix special harms folks like them. And they have some advice for all them companies that love to boast about their diversity programs…including the ones they were a part of as well.

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).
