Alanta Colley

Co-Host of Climactic

Alanta is the boss of Sci Fight Science Comedy Debate, which brings together scientists and comedians to debate serious issues in a ridiculous manner. Sci Fight happens quarterly in Melbourne at the Howler Bar and goes on a National tour when it feels like it.

Alanta has a Masters in International Public Health and has worked in health programs in Uganda, Kenya, Cambodia and East Timor, around HIV, Malaria, and sanitation.

She worked for Engineers Without Borders for 7 years, supporting partnerships with Aboriginal organisations, and taking engineering students to India, Samoa and Cambodia to learn in partnership with rural communities about sustainability and human centred design.

She is also a comedian, delivering her sell out show ‘Parasites Lost’ and 'Days of our Hives' at Melbourne International Comedy Festival. She hates puns and the entire thing was excruciating. She's been featured on ABC TV News, interviewed in Frankie Magazine, and is a regular on ABC radio with David Astle.

She’s a mediocre urban farmer, growing mainly organic kale-fed caterpillars. She keeps bees, though admittedly they mainly keep themselves.

Alanta Colley has hosted five Episodes.
