DEGES & DRAGONS
Therapy & RPG Gaming
In early 2018, Nate was approached by his childhood friend, Conrad, about collaborating on a YouTube project to promote RPG gaming and it's positive impact on mental health.
With Conrad's expertise and background in Psychology and Nate's background in technology, the two brothers from other mothers got to work.
Years prior, when Nate & Conrad were younglings, Conrad's father ironically referred to the duo and their group of friends as "Degenerates" one day while the gang stocked up on Mountain Dew, ready for a long weekend of gaming. The term stuck around and over the years was naturally shortened to "Dege".
Launched April 2020, Deges & Dragons was born.
The Supplemental Podcast For Deges & Dragons
What do pen and paper role-playing games and therapy have in common? A lot more than you might think.
Welcome to the Degecast! The supplemental podcast for our YouTube show, Deges & Dragons!
