Session Artists

Sacha Horler is one of Australia’s most loved and respected actors. She had the unprecedented joy of winning two AFI awards on one night for the lead role in Praise and supporting role in Soft Fruit. She won her third AFI award for best supporting actress in Travelling Light.

Jess McGuire is a writer, DJ, broadcaster, and MC based in Melbourne. She appears regularly on ABC Local Radio and Double J as a reviewer and cultural commentator, and for many years she was the editor of pop culture website Defamer Australia. She is a former presenter of Triple R’s flagship Breakfasters show.

Yumi Stynes is busy. She hosts the podcast Ladies, We Need to Talk, parents a shitload of kids and, you know, likes to waste time having fun. This year she's been shooting a documentary on sexism for SBS while merrily fighting racism on her own time. All this while trying to waste as few fucks as possible.
