On this week’s episode, hosts Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill discuss their mixed feelings about Usher performing at this year’s Super Bowl. The timing might be perfect but is it pandering to Black audiences considering what the community has gone through over the last few years? But first, a pass the popcorn segment on Tyler Perry’s relationship advice to Black women and other cishetero nonsense.

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).
