This week, jarrett and Tre’vell give the FANTI treatment to that reality tv show staple: The reunion episode. Sometimes the reunion episode is even better than the season itself…if it’s done right, and the drama feels authentic and organic.
Plus, listener Nick–a white gentleman–writes in with a question about an alternative way to phrase the description: “Hotep nonsense conspiracy thinking”. Tre’vell and jarrett had differing views on Nick’s email so they grappled with the complexity of how to answer him in A Tough Question.

Black History Is Happening Everyday
Bessie Coleman, the first Black woman and first Native American to hold a pilot license in the world in 1921. Born in 1892 in Atlanta, Texas, the tenth of thirteen children. Recently, an all-Black female flight crew made history in her honor.
On Aug. 8, an American Airlines flight from Dallas-Fort Worth — near where Coleman grew up — to Phoenix was operated by the airline’s first-ever all-Black female crew.

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).
