“Role-playing games are really for anyone that enjoys a story, or being immersed in a story” – Lorelle Bowditch, PhD Student at CQ University

Many of us have been stuck in some form of isolation for the past few months, and surely there has to be something to fill that time with. Dungeons & Dragons has been around for a long time, but with the rise of nerd culture over the past decade, the game has well and truly hit the mainstream. You may have even played a game or two in recent times. To find out a bit more about this adventurous fan favourite, we looked into the local D&D scene to see what makes the game so appealing. Lorelle Bowditch, a PhD student at CQ University, also gave us the lowdown about role-playing games and why they hold such huge appeal.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has announced it plans to up fees for a number of Uni courses, while dropping those for courses which they say are more likely to lead to jobs. But is this fair, and what sort of impact could it have on the Higher Education sector? We spoke with Ron Slee, the National Tertiary Education Union’s SA Division Secretary, to get the vital info. Also on the show, we bring you the latest on the COVID-19 pandemic, and also take a walk on the brighter side with Heaps Good News. Listen in!
