Description

Black pop culture and unspoken rules? Original music across a variety of genres? And episodic adventures?

Created by Uzo Chijioke and Courtney Marie Simpson, with additional production/songwriting by Donnell "DWeezy" Robinson, TWENTYONE 21 is a sci-fi comedy narrative fiction podcast that follows Cici and Funks: two friends, co-workers, and roommates who share the same birthday and believe that they'll unlock mystical, melanated powers on 12/21 (or at least that's what Cici read on "Black Twitter"). Audio editing by JR Zamora-Thal and AJ Thal.

Mr. Callahan is being... nice to Cici and Funks? Ah, of course, he wants them to accompany him to a new southern-style restaurant in a rough part of DC. But when Funks makes a special request to the waiter... let's just say it's a battle of who has the better taste in food.

Dang! The Complex is losing money and needs some new marketing to attract new tenants! And no new tenants means Mr. Callahan will have to sell the building to a greedy businesswoman and Cici and Funks will have to go find employment (and housing) elsewhere. Maybe a viral dance video would help! But wait, Funks can't dance! Oh lawd... maybe Mr. Callahan's annoying son can help out.
