About

THEJUICEMEDIA – home of Juice Rap News and Honest Government Adverts: 100% independent satire, responsible for turning bollocks-news into socio-poetical analyses everyone can relate to and understand – 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 and video producer. 

He completed a PhD in history, writing and researching settler-colonialism and publishing two academic books – The Colonisation of Time and Coranderrk: We Will Show the Country – but soon realised he could be more useful as a human by communicating with peeps beyond the world of academia, and via the Youtubez. Which led him to devise a number of projects:

Juice Rap News: Giordano teamed up with UK-born rapper Hugo Farrant and together co-wrote and produced 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 (produced by Ilbijerri Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Theatre Company x La Mama Theatre) which brings back to life the remarkable struggle for justice of the Coranderrk community – arguably one of the greatest unknown stories in Australian history.

In 2016, Giordano launched the Honest Government Advert series, collaborating with his partner and voice-actor Lucy Cahill; as well as actors Ellen Burbidge, Zoë Amanda Wilson and Matylda Buczko-Koren.
