Project co-founder and an Ongoing cast member
Pidj (They/Them) is an Australian uni student of psychology and computer science and has been writing as long as they can remember. Storytelling is in their blood, as a member of the Jawoyn mob (a group of Indigenous Australians from the Northern Territory), although they live on Whadjuk Nyungar land, in Perth, Western Australia.
They use they / them pronouns, are asexual, and despite struggling with persistent anxiety, always love hearing about people’s pursuits and perspectives. They love creativity in all its forms and they are an ardent fan of TTRPGs.
Pidj is in the midst of developing a podcast of their own, an audiodrama under the name Dear Cassiopea. They can be found at @Teayll on twitter, and their podcast at @Dear_Cassiopeia.
They are also a screenwriter for the podcast Modern Fae, which has episodes out now in all major podcast directories.
“For me, Voices at Play is a celebration as much as it is a drive for change. It’s a way for me to celebrate my Aboriginal heritage, my nonbinary experiences, my creative passions, as well as all the lives and perspectives and skills of others, those who are too often ignored.
And, of course, I want to celebrate the hard work and the immense skill of game-makers from every community, and make sure they get their dues. If I’m allowed to be ambitious, I also want to enable the audience to do the same. Yes, I hope you learn something from us, but I’m not here to teach, I’m here to embrace and foster and celebrate diverse games!”
