Though he's lived in New Zealand for more than two decades, Ahmed Osman (Third Culture Minds) struggles to remember ever seeing anybody who looked like him on the screen here. The Somali-New Zealander joins Duncan Greive to talk about how diversity and representation are handled when it comes to media funding, the flow-on consequences that has and the opportunities we’re missing out on as a result. They also discuss Kelvin Taylor’s recent story on The Spinoff: How it feels to be an African-Kiwi on NZ screens.
