    Episode 20 - Aamer Rahman (Fear of a Brown Planet, ABC, SBS, Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala)

    Aamer Rahman is a brilliant comedian, activist and writer. His viral 'reverse racism' stand up bit is one of the best you'll see. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw_mRaIHb-M


    We have a great conversation about politics, Heritier Lumumba, racism in Australia and BLM. I'm sure you'll love it!


    I'd also recommend watching Aamer in conversation with Dr Cornel West: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89PoaNyIifI

    Episode 18 - Nazeem Hussain (Comedian, writer, actor; Netflix, Legally Brown, Orange Is The New Brown, Stan)

    Nazeem Hussain is one of Australia's biggest comedy stars. I first saw him in Legally Brown, which if you haven't seen it, is one of the best and most provocative sketch shows to ever come out of Australia. He has a Netflix special and a role in the Netflix show Bill Nye Saves The World. He's performed at Montreal Just For Laughs, supported Dave Chapelle in New York and his podcast Burn Your Passport won the 2016 itunes Best Comedy Podcast Award. He's a panelist on Channel 10s Hughesy We Have A Problem and has appeared on The Project, Q and A and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

    David Quirk is one of my favourite people to chat to. He is a comedian who thinks deeply and interestingly. One of the best writers in the world of comedy and a great actor who you may know from shows like Rosehaven. He has won a bunch of awards. I loved chatting to him so much and think you will too.

    Sarah Garnham is a prominent left wing activist. She is a staunch socialist and member of Socialist Alternative. She was previously the head of the National Students Union. She writes regularly for Red Flag magazine and has given multiple talks at Marxism Festival in Melbourne and Sydney. She is one of the most passionate, devoted, inspiring and intelligent people I’ve ever met and she also happens to be my sister. This is a big chat between siblings about politics.

    Episode 15 - Kirsty Webeck (Comedian; ABC, Tonightly, Comedy Up Late)

    Kirsty Webeck is a brilliant comedian and great friend of mine. We met up before a gig we did together and recorded this before performing and it was so much fun. We chat about comedy and have an interesting discussion about pre conceived notions of what it takes to be a comedian. Such a great, interesting chat.
