Jarrett and Tre’vell give the FANTI treatment to the group chat, which Jarrett defines as any text group with three or more people, while Tre’vell does not. And although FANTI implies “fan” and “anti”, theirs is a lopsided discussion that clearly favors the latter, including a sprinkling of anti sentiment for Slack and email. If you happen to be a member of one of their group chats, you may feel attacked.

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).
