You Can't Ask That is an Australian talk show that was inspired by Reddit's Ask Me Anything (AMA). In each episode questions form the viewers and the public are taken and presented to minority populations in Australia, like sex workers, Muslims and transgenders. The idea behind the show is to provide a better insight into the lives of these minorities, hoping to use the questions and their answers to break down stereotypes. You Can't Ask That is an original ABC series, but several organisations that represent minorities in Australia have been involved with the production over the years. These include Short Statured People of Australia, Alzheimer's Australia and The Karuna Hospice Service. The show has often been praised for managing to combine a serious premise with sufficient amounts of humour to remain attractive to a more mainstream audience as well.
