More Ducks than Racism
50 min

Andrew and producer Matt catch up and can’t stop talking about ducks again and then they answer voicemails about gentrification, excluding white people from DnD, and informing your POC friend about your racist grandma. Stay safe out there and call in if you have a racism question: 323-389-RACE.

Should We Break Bread Or Break Our Silence?
The holidays are upon us and with that comes family dinners, Zoom gatherings (hello, 2020!) and a spirit of community across the nation. While the nation grapples with a volatile election year within an already volatile four years of civil unrest, some have advocated for folks to find a path toward healing, a chance to put down our differences and look toward a new beginning as a healed nation. But will doing so cause more harm than good for those who have been the target of subjugation? Should it fall to those groups to extend the olive branch? FANTI hosts Jarrett Hill and Tre'vell Anderson get into the complex and complicado of reconciliation and who should be doing the work. But first... Pass the Popcorn Tre'vell and Jarrett chat about People's 2020 Sexiest Man Alive list and they have...opinions. DIS/Honorable Mentions This week, Jarrett has an honorable mention for the phenomenally produced _The Fresh Prince of Bel - Air_ reunion and specifically "OG Aunt Viv" Ms. Janet Hubert! If you missed it you can check it out here. He's also shouting out Barack Obama's new book and Grammy-nominated artist Mykal Kilgore. Speaking of Grammys. Tre'vell has an honorable mention for Meghan Thee Stallion whose new album is… a BOP! Lastly, an honorable mention for the word "ashy." IYKYK. Read Jarrett's full article in Revolt here.

Ep. 71: Jim O’Heir & Dulcé Sloan
Do you hear the people sing? It’s another edition of _Go Fact Yourself!_ Jim O’Heir is best known for his role as Jerry/Larry/Terry/Garry on NBC’s beloved comedy “Parks & Recreation.” But despite the show’s monstrous fanbase, he says that he still hears people confuse it with another beloved NBC comedy. You can probably guess which one. He’ll tell us all about his career and why he was so shocked when he won his first Emmy award. Dulcé Sloan is a frequent correspondent on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.” What’s one of her most memorable things about working on the show? It’s gotta be the costumes -- she’s dressed up as everything from a Christmas Tree to God with an afro. Plus, she’ll tell us about how she feels right at home with Korean culture, from the history to the TV to the food. Guests answer questions about (and shed some tears for) intergalactic voyages, international plays and the perfect Korean meal spread. What’s the difference: Trust but Verify What’s the difference between “distrust” and “mistrust”? What’s the difference between “verify” and “confirm”? Areas of Expertise: Jim O’Heir: The 2020 U.S. election, The musical _Les Miserable, _The TV show “Mama’s Family.” Dulcé Sloan: The TV show “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” the TV show “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and historical Korean dramas. Appearing in this episode: J. Keith van Straaten Helen Hong Jim O'Heir Dulcé Sloan With guest experts: Judy Kuhn, multiple Tony, Olivier and Grammy-nominated Broadway actor.

57 - Classic Cliffhangers: Family Matters
Now, wait a minute. Are we Thankful. How did we get this far? There were moments we thought we wouldn't get here, but we kept going, and, with some hard work and a LOT of support from you, we're still going strong over one year later AND we're able to bring you the best selling Hanukkah blend ever! Talk about a lot to be thankful for, excuse me. This past summer's installment of Classic Cliffhangers was such a hit we wanted to bring you Volume 2 for the holiday! These cliffhangers were mentioned on the Free Feed, but only answered on Patreon, and they are, as (Bryan) puts it, a real "Dooze McBooze." Classic Cliffhangers: Vol. 2 involves, appropriately enough for Thanksgiving, problems with family. We tackle four of our most outrageous letters, including finding your cousin's husband on Tinder, the most insensitively decorated powder room in all of Canada, being stalked by your wife on your home security camera, and, maybe our favorite of all time, discovering your preachy father-in-law secretly smoking your used cigarette butts. If this doesn't want to make you join us in The Carriage House every Friday on Patreon, we don't know what will! patreon.com/askronna And, as our Thanksgiving gift to you, the ENTIRE episode will be available to watch on our YouTube channel at youtube.com/askronna . Enjoy! As we mentioned, the Ronnukah Blend is a HUGE hit! And our Ask Ronna Coffee gift boxes are as delightful as can be, and they'd make an amazing gift for the coffee lover in your life. Visit askronnacoffee.com for all the details!
