Episode Notes

What does it feel like to grow up without seeing yourself reflected on TV? Screenwriter Benjamin Law describes this exclusion as 'quietly dehumanising' and a form of 'structural racism'. He joins Lena Nahlous on the Colour Cycle to talk about his comedy series that is changing the face of our TV screens. Benjamin Law talks about casting the predominantly Asian-Australian characters, why quotas work and about creating new opportunities and new reflections for writers of colour in Australia.
