This week, Tre’vell invites best friend, Bianca Carter, to co-host the episode to dig into the topic of friendship. They met one another twelve years ago as Bonner scholarship recipients attending an anti-poverty program. As Bianca recalls, she and Tre’vell clicked immediately, but they were stand-offish the second time they met in person. Each of their perspectives highlight the different ways people navigate their relationships, and that the key to getting what one needs from a friend is communication.

Bianca started her relationship with RuPaul’s Drag Race during COVID, so Tre’vell thought it fitting to talk Season 7, All Stars starring: Raja, Yvie Oddly, Shea Couleé, Jinkx Monsoon, Monét X Change, Trinity The Tuck, Jaida Essence Hall and The Vivienne. They share who they’re rooting for right now, about 4-5 episodes into the season.

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).
