Embedded is a 3 part series that puts three young presenters at the heart of each episode. Embedded with Sheik Hilaly presented by Dave Zwolenski sees a young white guy living with one of Australia’s most controversial figures Sheik Hilaly to try and get a better understanding of what it means to be Muslim and just why so many Australian’s consider them a threat. In the second episode Embedded with the Murri Mob presenter Sarah Jane Woulahan crosses the racial divide of her hometown Brisbane to understand what life is really like for Aboriginal people. The third episode Embedded with Nationalists presented by Samia Hossain we travel the country trying to get to the bottom of the nationalist debate and answer the million dollar question – what does being an Australian actually mean.
