Another Aussie in LA Podcast

Hosted by Ansuya Nathan

Another Aussie in LA is an entertainment podcast hosted by Australian actress, writer and director Ansuya Nathan. Launched with an interview with acclaimed comedian Wil Anderson (Gruen Transfer, Gruen Planet, Wilarious) on Australia Day 2013, the podcast shares the tales of talented Aussie artists living, working and playing in the City of Angels.

In May 2014, Australians in Film welcomed Ansuya into the AiF family - making Another Aussie in LA the official podcast of Australians in Film!

Previous guests include Tim Minchin (Matilda: the musical), Stuart Beattie (Collateral, I Frankenstein), Caroline Craig (Blue Heelers, Underbelly), Matt Le Nevez (Offspring, Howzat!), Josh Lawson (House of Lies, Any Questions for Ben?), Daniel MacPherson (Dancing with the Stars, Wild Boys), Bojana Novakovic (Edge of Darkness, US remake of Rake) and Zoe Ventoura (Packed to the Rafters, Wildboys). Full list of past episodes



Talk about ending with a bang! It’s the 2016 Heath Ledger Scholarship winner, Ashleigh Cummings (PUBERTY BLUES, MISS FISHER’S MURDER MYSTERIES, TOMORROW WHEN THE WAR BEGAN). Ashleigh talks about juggling three different jobs in three different cities, her ability to nap on set (in between takes nonetheless) and asserting her independence at the tender age of 14 by traveling to Los Angeles on her own. We discover new words and bond over our mutual love of pancakes. We chat about catharsis and balance as the great ideal. And just when you think you’ve got her down, she shares her African adventures with the Masai and Berber communities. AMAZING!

“When I arrived in LA, I was fortunate to stumble on an incredibly talented and supportive community of fellow expats. I met up with friends (and then friends of friends) to learn how this crazy town operates, and realized the wealth of knowledge they shared with me would be of interest, and hopefully, inspiration, to others. And so Another Aussie in LA was born. In the past year, the calibre of my guests has continued to grow. Some are friends, some are acquaintances and some are total strangers, but all are LA dwelling Aussies with something to say to listeners on both sides of the Pacific.”
