D&D Mini – Paw Patrol Dino Rescue Review

D&D Mini – Paw Patrol Dino Rescue Review

Ryan and Crofton are back with another Kids TV Show Review, this time looking at the first episode of Paw Patrol Dino Rescue! Do dinosaurs and Paw Patrol mix well? Has Ryan cursed himself by allowing his kids to understand that the Paw Patrol show is a toy factory? Will Crofton sing the Jurassic Park theme song? Find out on this new Dungeons and Diapers Mini!

D&D 47 – Big Girl Bed

D&D 47 – Big Girl Bed

The boys are back to commiserate about the misery that is Canadian November before getting into the fun stuff that is tv and games. They spin some webs as Miles Morales (just not on PS5) before Ryan plugs his new favourite Australian sketch comedy series. In a rant heavy episode, Crofton lets loose on the new gaming consoles before settling down with sweet stories about how his daughter has graduated to a big girl bed. Ryan’s latest addition Isabelle continues to grow at super speed as well. It is true what they say: blink and you’ll miss something. All this and the first of (likely many) Christmas chats as well! Come listen!

D&D 46 – Busting Makes Me Feel Good

D&D 46 – Busting Makes Me Feel Good

Crofton teaches Ryan what Happy Endings are on this episode of Dungeons and Diapers, that is to say an entertaining cancelled too soon sitcom that he has been watching. Ryan counters by singing the praises of The Mandalorian, following its first episode. One thing the boys can uniformly agree on is that Halloween is awesome despite the pandemic. From candy hunts to Ghostbusters, they enjoyed it all. And now you can too… come listen! Be sure to stick around after the outro music, as we have a bit of bonus content for all you lovely listeners. 

D&D 45 – The Deep Pan

D&D 45 – The Deep Pan

The leaves are changing colour, the temperature is dropping, Halloween is coming, but one thing remains constant: the insane global pandemic. Crofton’s mental state is fragile and not helped by the brutal Dark Souls of Mario: Super Mario Sunshine. Luckily Hades, and to a lesser degree, Ryan, are there to cheer him up! Speak of the devil, Ryan talks this year’s All Hallow’s Eve with his possible kid prep and a great new podcast recommendation. He closes it up with thoughts on how he can get Abby to “let it go” with Frozen-inspired potty training. Come listen!

D&D 44 – To Hell and Back

D&D 44 – To Hell and Back

Crofton and Ryan are back it, talking about their favourite in television, video games, and…. scooters? Ryan is up Schitt’s Creek without a paddle and Crofton has to overcome his Canadian TV prejudices to join him. One thing they both can agree on is how awesome the new video game Hades is. It says a lot about 2020 that it is more fun to go to hell but here we are. All of that plus Mario makes his usual appearances in both LEGO and Galaxy form. Come listen!

D&D 43 – Pumpkin Spice: Director’s Cut Extended Edition

D&D 43 – Pumpkin Spice: Director’s Cut Extended Edition

In this extra-long Dungeons and Diapers, Ryan and Crofton commiserate about the dystopian hellscape they now inhabit, with their sole comfort being… pumpkin spice. Also, video games and TV shows – even children’s shows as Ryan breaks out his first kid review for Extra Life on Noddy’s Toyland Detective. With all the stuff in this one, we might just have to go with a list. It includes: Ghost of Tsushima final thoughts, Mario All-Stats first thoughts, return to school, COVID testing, Netflix’s High Score, and more. Finally, find out if Ryan decides to snip the cord, no not that one, the other one! Come listen!

D&D 42 – B is for Boy, but K is for Kombat

D&D 42 – B is for Boy, but K is for Kombat

Ryan and Crofton return to report back on their slow re-introduction to school during these COVID-19 times. Tune in next episode when they have a few weeks under their belt to see how things went! Ryan introduces this years promo for Extra Life, and should be a lot of fun content for the show and torture for Ryan as he is forced to digest even more Children’s programming. In the Dungeons, Crofton has been enjoying Umbrella Academy Season 2 and Rita on Netflix, while Ryan gets his Avengers on in with the new PlayStation 4 game. In a bridge between the two segments, Ryan is forced to admit that Crofton is mostly right, as the new God of War book “B is for Boy” is more satirical than actual kids book (about 90% of it is FINE for kids, just need to do a little self sensor and skip a page or two). In the Diapers, Crofton has been thoroughly enjoying Child of Light as the follow up to Paper Mario The Origami King with Gwen. Ryan, not wanting the Paper Mario fun to end, dusts off the Wii U and picks up Paper Mario Color Splash. We close the show with Listener Feedback and Children’s Book suggestions!

D&D 41 – What the Future Has in Store

D&D 41 – What the Future Has in Store

This week Ryan and Crofton get significantly off track with their memories of Future Shop – a Canadian technology staple. The boys then get to business as Ryan explores samurai-era Japan in Ghost of Tsusima and Crofton descends into the depths of Hallownest in Hollow Knight. Both of them then share trauma with regards to a fateful event in Paper Mario that left a mark on their children. All of this and some good podcast and TV recommendations! Come listen!
