Is “tipping culture” out of control? A recent article in the New York Times by Christina Morales, explores this thorny question, and was the inspiration for this week’s complex & complicado conversation. jarrett and Tre’vell tackle questions like: In addition to wait staff at restaurants, which types of workers should receive a tip? How much should you tip? Why should customers be responsible for subsidizing the salaries of service workers?

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).
