S01 Ep05 – Indigenous Futurism: Explained
How can science fiction, a genre that imagines a future of infinite possibilities, be seemingly unable to imagine a future where people of colour have any relevance – or even exist? In this episode host Sofia Syntaxx talks about indigenous futurism: what is it and why it’s important in Indian Country and mainstream pop culture. From 2001 when scholar Grace Dillion coined the term to the Black Panther movie to amazing anthologies showcasing the work of BIPOC creators, we’ll explore the origins and development of this revolutionary new way of thinking. Learn about the link to Afrofuturism and hear Sofia’s recommendations for her favorite indigenous futurism books, movies, music, and fashion. Digressions include the Afrofuturist Project, Janelle Monae, and a story about how the oil and gas industry freaked out over the indigenously-created “Thunder Bird Strike” video game.

S01 Ep04 – Vegans, Tik Tok, and the Fight for Indigenous Food Sovereignty
Is veganism colonialism? In this episode host Sofia Syntaxx talks plant-based activism, the problems with white veganism, and what we’re all getting wrong when we talk about food. Hear Sofia’s reaction to a certain viral TikTok video with allegations of vegan oppression. Digressions include the conviction of George Floyd’s murderer, protecting the rights of migrant farm workers in the United States, working conditions of farmers from the global south, and how Jair Bolsonaro is harming more than just Brazil with his genocidal environmental practices. Sofia also recommends several indigenous cookbooks to help you decolonize your diet. Learn the meaning of the Anishinaabemowin word “wiisinidaa.” Support the show (paypal.me/SofiaSyntaxx)!

S01 Ep03 – Dreamcatchers: Cultural Appropriation or Cultural Appreciation?
Do you love dreamcatchers? That’s great! Do you know which First Nations people they originate from? Because it’s not an “Indian” thing; it’s an Ojibwe thing. In this episode, Anishinaabe (Ojibwe/Chippewa) host Sofia Syntaxx dishes about dreamcatchers, what they mean, and what the appropriate way for non-Native people to use them is. (HINT: Definitely don’t buy a mass produced one!) Hear the shocking reason why this podcast was almost never made when Sofia shares a dramatic reading of racist rants she’s been on the receiving end of. Digressions include our new theme song written and performed by Marcusworx, slacktivism, the importance of dreams, and Franchesca Ramsey. Sofia also calls us in to examine instances of cultural appropriation outside of indigenous cultures, including how natural black hair at work became a civil rights issue.

S01 Ep02 – Capitalism Can Wait: Complaining About My Cool Job
Do you work at a hospital you couldn’t actually afford to get sick in, or at a university you’d have to take out a loan to attend? In this episode host Sofia Syntaxx, a long-time member of the side hustle generation, uncovers the real reason we hate Mondays, but it isn’t what you’d expect. Tune in for a crash course on the gig economy, how your boss is probably screwing you over, and real-life ways to effect change in your workplace today! Want to know how to survive gig work with your soul intact? This is the podcast for you. With so many people now both living and working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, work burnout and fatigue is inevitable. Join as Sofia explores the roots of the self-care movement and pushes back against grind culture. Digressions include how to handle the big feels that go hand-in-hand with working from home during a global pandemic, app jobs, dealing with art block, and why we must reject the starving artist stereotype. The revolution will not be monetized, so let’s take nap. Support the show (paypal.me/SofiaSyntaxx)! Join us on Patreon! Do you want to participate? Message us @ANGRPodcast on Twitter and Instagram.
