jarrett and Tre’vell are back at it again, refreshed from the holiday break and ready to drop some gems for our FANTIfam, as the two discuss “-ussy”, as American Dialect Society’s Word of the Year and other linguist developments. Your faves also cover the importance of rest, and why rest is resistance.

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).
