The Great Big Beautiful Podcast, Episode 200: Dominique Tipper
Welcome, ladies and gents, to Episode 200! Happy anniversary to us! When we began this weird little show about four years ago, I don’t think I ever realistically thought I’d be here to see 200 episodes. But here we are, and stronger than ever! And I could think of no better way to celebrate than with Dominique Tipper!
Tipper currently anchors an absolutely amazing cast on The Expanse, which is making the jump over to Amazon Prime for its fourth season. As Naomi Nagata, she not only leads one of the best sci-fi shows ever made but also is the most prominent face in a show that excels at presenting a world (or galaxy) populated by people who represent the true diversity of our own world. For fans of the books and show, do check out our conversation with authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck and Shiri’s chat with Cas Anvar (Alex Kamal).
On this episode, Shiri and I break out the hard-hitting journalistic questions and get to the root of her obsession with stationery. We also talk about her early proclivity toward performing, her music and dance career, her first audition and role, breaking into the Hollywood scene from abroad, working on The Expanse, and why the role of Naomi is so important.
