Dungeons & Diapers Archives
The boys are on vacation! At the same time! But not together! You get what we mean right? Anyway, what is a geek vacation without a geek vacation game? Crofton goes through an existential crisis filled with anime, RPGs, and full priced Switch games in an era of Xbox Game Pass. As Ryan talks him down, he must deal with the Nicolas Cage of it all that is going on in his head. Add to that some fun Daddy Day Camp vacation tales and you got all the makings of a fine episode of Dungeons and Diapers. All of this and Only Murders in the Building too!
Well COVID finally caught up to one of our intrepid hosts – find out which one and how they handled it with tons of kid content, from board games (King of Tokyo), to movies (Raya and Big Hero 6), to TV shows for adults (Abbott Elementary). Meanwhile, the non-COVID host shared his summertime scary story with impressions of horror video game The Quarry. All this and more on a packed episode! Come listen!
Crofton and Ryan are back, after a small break, to exchange notes on all the geekery that crosses their paths. This is a bit of a greatest hits episode as it includes an Obi-Wan inspired Star Wars discussion, a how to get your kid into games sidebar, and Ryan pool jokes. It is not all retreads however as Ryan brings the projectile vomit from his son’s soccer game and Crofton underlines the nuances behind trash talking your own children when gaming together. Come listen!
It’s almost summer, and for parents of young kids that means figuring out childcare. Crofton and Ryan talk about this and some of the big summer TV releases, notably Stranger Things Season 4 on Netflix (no spoilers). All of this and Ryan and family go to the zoo! Come listen!
Ryan and Crofton take a break from the games (following Crofton’s critically acclaimed visit to The Gamer’s Inn) to talk about TV and movies – notably Doctor Strange and his crazy multiverse experiences (slight spoilers marked below if you’re looking to avoid) and the kids of Big Mouth and their hormonal adventures. It is then story time, as Crofton shares a story of bouncy castles and Ryan, a tale of two Kayden’s. It is an episode super stuffed with all the things you love! Come listen!
Ryan and Crofton have had it rough lately – for different reasons. They are here to talk about them and work through their complicated emotions. Don’t worry though, here to help them is the wonderful world of Marvel Comics which they enjoyed through Spider-Man No Way Home, Moon Knight on Disney Plus, and the Guardians of the Galaxy video game. Thoughts are shared, laughs exchanged. Add to that some Switch Sports and a little Easter bunny conversation. All of this and you got a banger episode of DaD baby!
Crofton kicks off the show running through “Disaster Chez Crofton”, while Ryan’s office chair seems to have a mind of it’s own. In the Dungeons section, Ryan has been watching Peacemaker while Crofton takes the Sega Genesis to task. We also revisit Apple TV+ and The Afterparty, this time with some spoiler chat, so be sure to check the time marker in the notes! Moving into the Diapers section, there are a lot of birthdays going on, and Clara has a brand new catchphrase!
Crofton is back from vacations – both from out of the country with his family and from out of the podcast as he visited Ryan over on The Gamer’s Inn. Highlights from that discussion include Switch vacation games Golf Story and Into the Breach, Valheim and Ryan’s rundown of the new Halo show. Crofton then goes in depth on his beach vacation and trying to get his kids to pee in the pool. Did we say pool? This episode should come with a trigger warning for Ryan. Come listen!
Ryan is luckily feeling better and back to chatting with Crofton on everything and anything geek and family related. This week the boys go full spoilers on the Book of Boba Fett before talking about The After Party, Elden Ring and more. Ryan is trying to survive a March Break with three kids at home while Crofton does all the fun planning for a vacation trip under the sun. All of this and a time change too! Come listen!
