Episode notes

This week, jarrett is still on hiatus so Tre’vell is joined by Dr. Jon Paul for a conversation about body positivity and body neutrality moving through the world as fat, Black and femme, and how they’ve found peace with themselves. In addition, they both dig into the world of corporate Pride branding, asking who the folks are who buy it, and which brands’ merchandise hits, and which ones miss.

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).
