This week, Tre’vell and Jarrett are joined by culture critic and Pulitzer Prize nominee Soraya McDonald to gain her perspective on the intersections of identity. 

What does it mean to be Jewish and Black in America? Whose stories are accepted as the default representation of an ethnic group? We’ll examine the various ways the social construct of race operate within the Jewish faith. 

But first…

T(ea!) Time:

In a new segment,  Tre’vell  takes us on their journey to discovering more about themselves and the world through therapy. 

DIS/Honorable Mentions

This week, Jarrett would like to remind us all that it has been 150 days since Breonna Taylor was brutally murdered by the Louisville, KY police department. She deserves justice. 

An honorable mention to Amber Ruffin and Larry Wilmore who will both have new late night shows debuting on the Pacock app this fall. 

An honorable mention to the Democratic presumptive vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris and to Maya Rudolph who are both about to be booked and busy!

And last but not least…

An honorable mention to Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Normani and all the sex-positive folks attached to Cardi and Megan’s new hit single, WAP.

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).
