The Afro-Existential Podcast
An AUDIO-PLAY and PODCAST all in one. Enjoy the play, come back for the conversation.
This season, we present DEAD WAIT: A JOURNEY IN AFRO-EXISTENTIALISM by Blaine Sparks-Teamer. A black comedy, DEAD WAIT tells the story of a modern all-American family: people who love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears: abandonment, poverty, death, and Los Angeles traffic.
After you’ve listened to the play, come back for the Afro-Existential Podcast, where your host Blaine Sparks-Teamer and Indira G. Wilson insightfully (and irreverently) chop up the Afro-Existential themes of the play, as well as interview the cast and many special guests.
