Instead of posting a regular episode this week, we’re happy to share with you a new episode of FANTI, one of the newest shows on MaxFun! FANTI is hosted by journalists Jarrett Hill and Tre’vell Anderson, who provide hilarious discussions and insightful criticism about beloved pop culture topics each week. We’re wild about this show, and we think you will be, too — and we’re so grateful to Jarrett and Tre’vell for allowing us to cross-post their latest episode in our feed.

Their latest episode breaks the regular format as they discuss the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, and the rampant, inhumane escalation of police violence against protestors and Black communities across the country during this period of unrest. We encourage you to listen, subscribe to FANTI, and find ways to amplify black voices however you can.
