RNZ Presenter and creator of podcast Bang!
Writer, producer and all-round great human Melody Thomas is the woman behind Bang!, a frank, no-shame exploration into sex, sexuality and relationships for all ages. Through her work with RNZ she's been changing conversations around sexuality for kiwis of all ages, stages and backgrounds; and doing so with humour and empathy.
A graduate of the New Zealand Broadcasting School, Melody was once advised to ‘channel her creativity into ad writing'. Ever contrary, she decided to find a place where she would never have to write, listen to or think about an ad for the rest of her broadcasting life. Thumbs up for that, we reckon.
