Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Yumi Stynes is a broadcaster and writer who's been working in Australian media for almost two decades, evolving from music reporter to her current, "more mature" focus as a writer on Arts, Culture, Food, Gender Politics and Human Sexuality. She’s known for her honesty, warmth and humour.
Like many women, Yumi is juggling — she does a daily radio show, works on several writing projects (two cookbooks, Zero F**ks and Zero F**ks Endless Summer, and most recently Welcome to Your Period), and regularly runs 10km for a laugh — all while raising four children. She fronts 'Ladies,We Need to Talk', the popular podcast with ABC Audio Studios and is the host of Is Australia Sexist? on SBS television.
Yumi is an accomplished MC, facilitator and speaker; recent events include Melbourne Writers Festival, She Leads Conferences, Rural Sexual Health Conference and Women in Leadership Symposium.
