In this edition of The Owl News Feature Podcast, presented by Lily Stokes and Lachlan Dixon:
- The COVID-19 pandemic affected many aspects of socialisation. One community that has also felt the impacts of social isolation is tabletop gaming. Local players and stores across Canberra have been pushing to rebuild their communities in a post-lockdown world.
- As the ACT’s population grows, the growing need for more homes in the ACT poses another question: what happens to remnant bushland? In the Molonglo Valley, a patch of bushland beside Denman Prospect is the subject of this debate.
- Australia has some of the best beaches in the world and being in the water is a great way to escape the summer heat. But what about those who can’t swim? Royal Life Saving ACT is urging people to keep up their water safety skills, following a fatal summer.
