    S04E03: Immigrants

    S04E03: Immigrants

    The Australian 2016 census results revealed that migration to Australia is on the rise. However, an anti-immigrant sentiment has been brewing in some pockets of society and, as a result, certain policies have been proposed that would effectively curb migration to Australia. SOS in Oz chat with Santilla Chingaipe, journalist and filmmaker, about what this means for immigrants in Australia. As a journalist who worked for SBS World News, Santilla has reported extensively on matters concerning migrant communities in Australia.

    SOS in Oz also get the scoop from Santilla on how to crack the Australian journalism and film industries. Plus a review of "Black Girl Magic" 2017, a night of empowering performances by Black women in Melbourne.

    “We are all human being, first and foremost. And some of us have been socialized differently to others, but that doesn’t make it any less or any better it’s just our lived experiences are different based on where we were born… but that doesn’t make those groups of people any less able to enjoy the same benefits that we get to enjoy in a democratic society.” – Santilla Chingaipe

    S04E02: White and African

    SOS in Oz chat with South African-Australian comedian, Gavin Lind, about his experience growing up as a White boy in apartheid South Africa, as well as issues of identity, belonging and White privilege.

    Plus, there's a new online talk show on the scene called Say It Loud which is making waves by putting the Black Australian experience in the forefront. SOS in Oz speak to the show creator, Vanessa Ocansey, and creative director, Rosaline Kanneh, about bringing the show to life and Australian media.

    “The media is very limiting in how they represent [Black Australians] in the media. They’ve always got that one token Black person and that’s meant to be enough to represent all of us. And that affects building your identity in a huge way.” - Vanessa Ocansey

    S04E01: Periodt

    Whether you call it 'Aunt Flo' or 'shark week', women across the world have been taught to talk about menstruation in hushed tones and euphemisms. For centuries, this normal occurrence in the female reproductive cycle has caused many women to feel ashamed and embarrassed of themselves. But a new wave of period pride is pushing back on the cultural taboo. SOS in Oz chip into the conversation with their menarche stories and opinions on Zambia's paid menstrual leave law.

    Plus, it's a hilarious Minority Spotlight with comedians, Joe White and Jason Wood.
    “I was having doubts in my mind… am I not as good as I thought, is this really for me… but I guess you have to go through moments like that to find that one person that supports, or that has your sense of humour. And at the end of the day I do it because it makes me laugh. When it makes me laugh, I believe it will make my audience laugh.” - Joe White
