On this week’s episode, hosts Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill go over the complex and complicado of the highly anticipated Barbie movie. They get into their thoughts on the film’s rollout, marketing strategy, and how Stereotypical Barbie represents the beginning of white women’s self – reckoning. But first in our Pass The Popcorn segment, our hosts speak on the state of the entertainment industry, from the WGA/SAG – AFTRA union strikes, to Hollywood’s initiative of driving out diversity, specifically at the network executive level.
Our hosts will also be on hiatus during the month of August, but don’t worry! We’ll be sharing content throughout the break and will be back on August 31st with a brand new episode.

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).
