Dungeons & Diapers Archives
The boys are back to their regular scheduled podcasting ways this week. It is a packed dungeon with comments on the new Spider-Man trailer, Marvel’s What If…, Dragon Quest XI, and more. Plus, changing diapers starts with fun birthday parties and the work they take and ends with back to school. Come listen and help find Ryan a new nickname! Oh, and also suggest things Crofton should do in exchange for Extra Life donations!
Crofton was on vacation this week, so Ryan welcomed Adam Huber, who draws the Bug Martini web comic, to discuss the Dungeons & Dragons Saturday Morning Cartoon from the 80’s (which is all available on YouTube)! Ryan and Adam also discuss their love of Disney+ and showing their kids the classics, while also balancing some Fornite skill building during the pandemic. Plus the all important question of when can you introduce your kids to your favourite franchises like Jurassic Park and Star Wars. Could you create a kid friendly version of Jurassic Park? We try to find out! Closing out the show we talk of Summer plans, and what to squeeze in as some last minute fun in the remaining few weeks of the season. All this, and more, on a Crofton-less Dungeons and Diapers!
Remember those Kids TV Show Reviews we promised to do? Well we have another one! Long delayed, but we did it! Ryan watched Mia and Me with the kids, thanks to an Extra Life donation from the lovely Whirlwind. Listen as Ryan transports Crofton to the wonderful world of Centopia!
The multiverse collides as Ryan and Crofton get together for their first ever Dungeons and Diapers special presentation: a discussion of Marvel’s first three Disney Plus shows: Wandavision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki. Spoilers ensue as the boys share thoughts on the first round of Marvel small screen content. What’s good? What’s bad? What’s in between? We rank and discuss. No kids this time but the diapers will return. Come listen!
Ryan and Crofton are back to lament their lack of a soft drink sponsor. Fear not, however, they bring the goods with deep dungeon discussions on everything from Ryan’s love of a new podcast on conning people (don’t know what that says about him) to Crofton’s time on the Sea of Thieves. Other bits and bobs include Netflix’s Lupin, Captain Marvel, a Quiet Place 2, and a visit to day camp. Come listen!
Crofton and Ryan pooled their collective energy from having a week off to deliver a super-sized episode where they cover everything from Loki to not losing your mind with your kids. Ryan goes mainstream with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart while Crofton goes art house with Backbone (it’s a PC game – Google it!). All of this and a moment to reflect. Come listen!
Ryan kicks off the show with a Tale of the Troublesome Threes, while Crofton struggles with work balance. Moving into the Dungeons, Crofton spins the GamePass Roulette on his Xbox Series X and lands on Lonely Mountains: Downhill. Ryan’s Dungeon content involves the premiere of Loki on Disney+, which of course leads to a larger MCU conversation. Over to the Diapers, Crofton watched The Mitchell’s vs The Machines with his oldest daughter, while Ryan vacationed with the family at a cottage rental. Although Crofton questions Ryan’s definition of a “cottage”.
This week marks Crofton succumbing to Ryan’s peer pressure and buying an Xbox Series X. Fair warning, if you don’t want the ins and outs of Xbox Game Pass and the wheeling and dealing you can do, skip ahead to the plethora of great stuff including Renaissance man Crofton’s book and podcast reviews while elite gamer Ryan walks you through the nuances of the Normandy in Mass Effect Legendary Edition. All of this and Gwen has her first experience with “mean girls” while Kayden perfects the art of wiping his ass. Come listen!
The end is in sight for Ryan and Crofton as they exchange vaccine news. Even Ryan’s daughter Abby’s new infatuation with worms and dead birds couldn’t throw them off! The boys were ready to hit the dungeons with TV talk on both the Handmaid’s Tale and 30 Rock. Ryan buys (another) new console and almost pulls a fast one on Crofton. Diapers are also changed in this jumbo episode with Ryan lamenting the sleep issues that come with kids sharing a room while Crofton shares his favourite childhood books – the Faraway Tree series- with his daughter. Come listen!
