Abolition Science Radio explores science and math delinked from racial capitalism, imperialism, and oppression - a science and math that serves all people.
In this episode we discuss critical numeracy, mathematics, and how numbers shape relationships in our society with former co-host Atasi Das.
Blackgirl geographies, radical love, and freedom lands are the focal point of our conversation with Loren Cahill. We discuss cartography as a settler colonial project and also explore the many lessons to be learned from Harriet Tubman in our fight for abolition.

A great resource for educators and teachers!
This podcast brings an authentic and insightful perspective to discussions about science and math. When people say “real world” they are usually just applying the same dominant constructs. This podcast actually pushes you to think outside colonized ideas about science through conversations with creative and interesting people. I also love how they center Blackness and Black women, and people of color. Lastly - you’ll get great music recommendations!
Learned so much just from the first couple episodes. Can’t wait to see what Latoya and Atasi come up with next. The music segment is one of my favorite parts !
A fresh perspective!
The show explores topics in such a creative way. It’s a fresh take on the things we talk about regularly. Great approach to the topics.
