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).

    This week, jh and Tre'vell invite filmmaker Amber J. Phillips, and author Da'Shaun L. Harrison (Belly of the Beast: The Politics of Anti-Fatness as Anti-Blackness) to the show for a conversation about fatphobia (read: jh's fatphobia). Regular listeners may recall jh's response to an email calling him out for expressing satisfaction that his beard hid his “double chin”. The critique was that “double chin” was code for fat, and that jh's fatphobia was showing. Amber and Da'Shaun were both given permission to drag jh, so that he, and FANTI listeners, can confront their own fatphobia, which is Anti-Black as well.
