In 2020, our Program Coordinator Astrid Edwards released Anonymous Was A Woman with Jamila Rizvi.
Anonymous Was A Woman is a conversation about books by and for women, and features interviews with prominent Australian and international writers. Australian writers interviewed include Tara June Winch, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Benjamin Law (the token male in Season 1), Ceridwen Dovey, Carly Findlay, Jessie Tu, Jan Fran, Leah Purcell, Melina Marchetta, Alice Pung, Zoya Patel, Rosie Waterland, Rebekah Robertson and Kate Richards (another RMIT alum!). International writers include Min Jin Lee, Angela Saini, Helen Goh and Cole Brown (the token male in Season 2).
The podcast reached #1 in both the Arts and Books categories on Apple Podcasts in Australia, as well as #32 on the Australian charts overall.
The podcast is part of Future Women and NINE, and was sponsored by Penguin Random House in Season 1.
