Jarrett’s back from vacation where he got an acute case of the giggles, and passed them on to Tre’Vell. This week, they dive into the mailbag to respond to listener questions…and listener shade. Strap in, cause this episode covers A LOT of ground. Like, three whole continents worth of ground. From the African continent, we hear from Akani who takes Jarrett & Tre’Vell to task for saying the COVID vaccine isn’t as available “in Africa”. Lucas in Brazil laments that “coming out” is extra burdensome for intersectional folks like them who are transmasc, non binary, aro, ace and gay. Plus, lots of listeners from the U.S.
Confused by the terms “aro”, “ace” or “allo”? Here’s the link to OULGBTQ + Society’s list of definitions Jarrett referenced in the show.
Here is a list of episodes that Jarrett and Tre’vell recommend checking out after listening:
Episode 78 – No Cis-sies Allowed (ft. Da’Shaun Harrison), and after you listen don’t forget to buy Da’Shaun’s book Belly of the Beast: The Politics of Anti-Fatness as Anti-Blackness.
HM: Elo Vegan Lifestyle is a beauty brand that is on a mission to make sustainability sexy AF
HM: CBS News reported that a manslaughter conviction of a 21-year-old Oklahoma woman who suffered miscarriage sparked outcry

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).
