OBSIDIAN is a speculative fiction podcast based in Afrofuturism by Adetola Abdulkadir and myself.

Driven by a deep, untapped interest in science fiction, we desire to take hold of the narratives nearest to us. Each episode tells a story that sits at the crossroads of Blackness, technology, and science, tackling issues such as surveillance, artificial intelligence, and alternative realities. For this awards-nominated work, we are recipients of the August 2020 Red Bull Arts Baltimore Microgrant and 2019 Rubys Artist Grant awarded by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation. OBSIDIAN has been featured in the Washington Post, UMBC Magazine, Open World, Bello Collective, and more. See more here.
