Castology acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn, and work.
In light of the growing movement around the world against racism and bigotry we Castologists wanted to do what we can to raise the profile of some great titles, made by, for, and about people of colour in Australia and around the world. We welcome any further input of titles we should be listening to and hope you can enjoy the eight great podcasts we recommend in the (no-so) mini-sode!
Now is the time to make your voice heard! Go protest and stand with all people who are so unfairly treated around the world!

Pretty for an Aboriginal
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. Eight episodes are available in 2017’s first season, with a second season to follow in 2018.
