Our Sponsors This Week

 

Brooklinen

High-quality materials are the most important element of a good sheet – not thread count. The Brooklinen team uses single-ply yarns from long-staple cotton – which create soft, strong fabric and a true thread count – while most manufacturers use weaker multi-ply yarns to inflate their thread count and give the illusion of luxury quality.

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).
