Could Dungeons and Dragons Help Fight Screen Addiction? | Full Report | Retro Report on PBS

Stream Full Episodes: https://to.pbs.org/2IaW1h3 | #RetroReportPBS
Parents worry about the latest video games, like Fortnite. A generation ago, Dungeons and Dragons was the game that seemed like a menace. But in a surprising twist, its role-playing strategies are now seen as a counterbalance to the problem of screen addiction.

Retro Report makes sense of the present by revealing the past. Join journalists Celeste Headlee and Masud Olufani as they connect the present to the past through four distinct and varied stories, and New Yorker humorist Andy Borowitz adds his signature wit. Tune in or stream new episodes Mondays and Tuesdays at 9/8c starting Oct. 7.

More about the show
Retro Report on PBS will explore topics such as: what happened when people witnessed a crime decades ago, and how their reactions predicted the way we react to online violence today; why psychedelic drugs – cousins to LSD, which fell out of favor in the 1960s  – are getting another look, this time for the treatment of mental illness; the story of a woman who survived a sexual assault at a Navy convention,  and challenged the Pentagon to change the way it treats women; and the strange, wandering voyage of a barge full of unwanted trash that highlighted the need recycle.
