THEJUICEMEDIA – 98.9% “genuine satire” – written & created by Giordano Nanni in a backyard home-studio in suburban Melbourne, Australia, on Wurundjeri land. 

 

Giordano as George Orwell

GIORDANO NANNI is a historian, writer, video producer and serial-annoyer of shit Governments. He somehow completed a PhD, writing and researching about settler-colonialism, and published two academic books (The Colonisation of Time and Coranderrk: We Will Show the Country) After which he eventually realised he could be more useful as a human by communicating beyond the confines (and paywalls) of academia. Which led him to embark on a number of other projects:

JUICE RAP NEWS: Giordano teamed up with rapper Hugo Farrant and together they co-wrote and produced 4 seasons of the the cult internet series Juice Rap News, which garnered an international audience with its critical dissections of current affairs, politics, memes and conspiracy theories, and in which Giordano appears in the guise of beloved characters such as Ken Oathcarn, George Orwell and Bill de Berg.

CORANDERRK: Giordano devised and co-wrote the groundbreaking verbatim theatre play Coranderrk: We Will Show The Country (produced by Ilbijerri Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Theatre Company and La Mama Theatre in collaboration with the University of Melbourne) which brings back to life the remarkable struggle for justice of the Coranderrk community – arguably one of the greatest unknown stories in Australian history.

HONEST GOVERNMENT ADS: In 2016, Giordano launched the crowdfunded series Honest Government Ads – collaborating with his partner and voice-actor Lucy, and actors Ellen Burbidge, Zoë Amanda Wilson and Matylda Buczko-Koren. The HGA team now comprises a small but dedicated team of legends in their respective fields; as well as talented artists and designers who regularly contribute their skills to the project. The Honest Government Ads are entirely produced thanks to the support of the Juice Media’s audience, mainly via Patreon. So, if you like what we do help us to keep going!
