An AUDIO-PLAY and PODCAST all in one. Enjoy the play, comeback 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 and Indira insightfully (and irreverently) chop up the Afro-Existential themes of the play, as well as interview the cast and many special guests.
Part of the Broadway Podcast Network.

I love this podcast

I found this podcast to be both funny and provocative and the characters and the story full of depth.

Fun, creative and informative.

The play is fantastic and the conversations after are so insightful. The talks after the play are so organic but really insightful. Love it. Very creative.

Throwback storytelling with 2020 realness

This podcast reminds me of when you would gather around the radio and listen to your favorite storytellers transporting you to other worlds. And the cliffhanger, I mean it makes you have to tune in to the next episode and we love to HEAR it!
