About Adetola

Adetola Abdulkadir is a bioinformatics scientist, and co-creator/co-producer of OBSIDIAN Podcast, an audio drama anthology project with stories thematically tied to Afrofuturism. 

Adetola's journey in audio work began from a desire to tell stories in the audio drama medium that gave voices to characters that looked and sounded like him, while examining issues unique to the black community via these narratives. This took off In 2019 when OBSIDIAN Podcast won the Robert W Deutsch Foundation RUBY Grant that funds the project. 

Adetola seeks to continue bringing important stories to light using either fiction or non-fiction. He is interested in further applying his skills as a producer, writer, and director that were developed through his work on OBSIDIAN. He is also interested in opportunities to apply his background in science to audio work.
