Host Angela Russell created Black Oxygen as a space to "breathe, connect, [and] restore by hearing and listening deeply to Black folks in this shared journey of life." In each episode (which are typically about an hour), Russell engages in conversations with various Black leaders "in Wisconsin and a little beyond." Guests include Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes (exploring the dichotomy between fear and freedom), Judge Everett Mitchell (discussing healing and vulnerability), and Dr. Sagashus Levingston (reflecting on Black motherhood and self-love). The show launched in July 2020 and is currently on its second season, where listeners can expect to continue hearing from diverse Black voices in Wisconsin, with a particular emphasis on love ethics. In addition to the link above, listeners will find Black Oxygen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher. The show is a project of Madison365, a news outlet based in the state's capital city.
