Have a listen and if you think you can do better, register to take on the Brain Chamber yourself!
What's your program?
A fun, interactive show where wildlife scientists from Arid Recovery answer children's questions about animals and the natural world.
Questions are recorded live at the Roxby Downs P&F Market Day and answered on-air the following Tuesday after school at 3pm.
How did you get involved with the station?
I heard Station Manger Jordan Curtis advertising for new show ideas and thought "hey...why not give it a go?"
Why did you decide to get involved at RoxFM?
I thought it would be a great way to get kids excited about wildlife and engaged in the local community.
What do you love about doing Conservation Conversation?
Hearing the questions that the kids have to ask.
From: "Why do pythons not venom you but only bite?", to "How many bettongs are there in Arid Recovery?" and "How do owls fly?", you never know what you are going to get.
What kind of music do you play on your show?
Anything we can relate back to animals, or any requests we might get.
Do you do anything else at the station?
I guest present on outside broadcasts at community events and occasionally feature on "A-Z with Az" and "The Vibe" shows.
There is a good community vibe at the station. Plus, radio-hosting is fun!

Today the South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill, and his colleagues Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis and MP for Giles, Eddie Hughes, were treated to a tour of the BHP Olympic Dam mine site.
Along with the press detail, they were taken through the mine and shown the work done on the smelter - the main reason for last year's mine shutdown.
"Roxby has a new lease on life," said Premier Weatherill, "This massive upgrade during the shutdown, it's great to see them employing an extra 120 people on top of the 3,200-odd that are already here - It's just been a magnificent effort, and really a very bright future for Roxby Downs."
Looking into the future, Premier Weatherill said the government are "working on upgrading the town," which entails "working together with BHP to make sure we improve child care and early childhood services [in Roxby Downs], and upgrading the school.
"There are really some great prospects ahead of this town. It really is going from strength to strength."
On the 17th of February the Roxby Districts Cricket Association is hosting Pink Stump's Day - a charity cricket match to raise money for The McGrath Foundation.
There'll be games for kids, as well as rocket arm and dirty slogger competitions from 5.30, and the T20 Grand Final will kick-off at 7pm.
RoxFM will be broadcasting live on the night so you won't miss out on any of the action!
