Another Aussie in LA
Join Ansuya Nathan as she navigates the city of Angels, chatting to some of the shiniest Aussies in L.A., sharing their tales of living, working and playing on this side of the globe.

Love Reality TV? Then you'll love this chat with Aimees Durrant - self taught whiz-bang editor of such shows as THe Block, 20:1, Face Off and Hell's Kitchen. We talk about how difficult it is to order a sandwich in this town, tight turnarounds (*ahem*), US budgets vs Oz budgets - no surprises there! - my burgeoning addiction to Syfy's Face Off, the satisfaction of working on the first season of a show and the overwhelming impulse to punch people in the face. I learn editor speak AND, most importantly, where to get lamingtons in LA. Ah, bliss!

Holy pop culture, Batman! It's Maude Garrett – gamer, geek and other things beginning with 'g'. We discuss the ways our faces betray us, vampire books, blind people, what make a good interviewee as well as a bad one, how she will forever be known as phlegm girl to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and we bond over our odd names and the way Americans say them. My love for Dave Grohl grows – EXPONENTIALLY! And, Zelda. There is talk of Zelda.

Here's Felicity Ward! This chat comes directly to you from Flick's air bnb bed. In between the dueling coughs, we talk about the beginnings of her career, ironic boganism, the weirdness of LA, the awesomeness of Americans, comedy show's with heart, people taking a punt on you and she describes herself as industrious. Agreed! We eat milk duds and Flick drops some MAJOR names… Yup, all in a days werq!

Many questions for Josh Lawson... We cover the importance of improv to keep things alive on set, the ups and downs of his various pilot season experiences, why he wants to give NY a shot and his love for low budget indies. And the ACCTAs get a right serving for their lack of respect towards TV comedy. Right! I'm off to write an angry letter.
