Actor Miranda Tapsell (Love Child, The Sapphires) and writer/actor Nakkiah Lui (Black Comedy, Kiki and Kitty) join forces to present Pretty for an Aboriginal, a BuzzFeed Australia podcast featuring wide-ranging conversation and critique of society, politics and culture.
Drawing on Australian and international guests – season one includes writer and commentator Roxane Gay, rapper, comedian and writer Briggs and Orange is the New Black’s Yael Stone – Miranda and Nakkiah discuss topics such as relationships, the importance of representation and how to be a good ally, all while challenging perceptions of Indigenous Australia and the nature of success.
The conversation is friendly and sharp, and you’ll hear much-needed perspectives at the intersection of politics and culture. As hosts, they allow guests to reflect on their experiences in a more open-ended space. Season one wrapped in late 2017; will Pretty for an Aboriginal return for a second? Buzzfeed has recently folded, so perhaps not. Will the show continue elsewhere? We can only hope.
