Adventures in New America is the first sci-fi, political satire, Afrofuturistic buddy comedy, serialized for New Americans in a new and desperate time.


Set a few years in the future, Adventures in New America follows the escapades of two mismatched African-New-American best friends — fat, lonely, curmudgeon IA and lesbian sneak-thief Simon Carr — who take on a series of increasingly wild heists to get quick cash to pay for IA’s medical treatment while attempting to survive the wilds of New New York City — and a secret cabal of Tetchy Terrorist Vampire Zombies from outer space. Intrigued? Good! Frequently, there will be musical numbers... and radical reflections on our dangerous, beautiful, heart-pounding world.

Don’t get the hate

Maybe I need to re-listen to this story to see what other POC are upset about bec I’m not. I find it funny and I’m keeping with the story just fine.

Upon my second listen through, I’ll write another review if I catch the same issues.

Really such a good podcast

The best thing to come out of quarantine was listening to this podcast.

Waste of time

This story is all over the place. I liked the idea, however the execution is horrible.
