Dungeons & Diapers Archives
Happy Halloween everyone! Come join Ryan and Crofton as they run through their respective Halloweens with kids. How to balance it all? Do you put a bowl out on the steps to stop folks from waking the baby? Did dirty teenagers empty the bowl even if you have a sign that says “Take 1 or 2 please”? Well this is the show for you. The boys brave the rain to reach the dungeon where they discuss the new hotness in The Outer Worlds and the old hotness that is Ron Swanson. All of this and Crofton gets his bike stolen again. Yes, for real. Come listen!
Ryan is joined by Kayden on the first Dungeons and Diapers Mini! We chat about Extra Life, Paw Patrol, and doing work for a little while. Donate to our Extra Life campaign and watch as Ryan and Kayden make their way through the Paw Patrol video game LIVE on Twitch.
The boys are back to comment on the changing of the leaves and the cooking of the turkeys. It is Canadian Thanksgiving eh? This year we are thankful for the wonderful folks who support Ryan’s Extra Life charity drive as well as the miracle of a AAA VR game in Asgard’s Wrath. Crofton dives deep into virtual Norse-ality while Ryan eats leeches with his friends in Sea of Thieves. Come for the game talk but stay for the rude relatives. All of that and speech articulation too! Teaching a kid to talk has never been more fun. Come listen!
A week removed from lamenting the Spider-Man’s exit from the MCU, Ryan and Crofton rejoice at his return! Let us be merry and share that merriness with others through the joy of charitable giving! You know what that means? It’s Extra Life season for Ryan again! Crofton and Gwen embark on a journey to wake up the Wind Fish in Link’s Awakening. All of this, the Office, Parks and Rec, and Kayden ain’t no fool – he’s going to (pre) school! Come listen!
It is a dark day in the Spiderverse as Ryan and Crofton commiserate over the Sony/Disney split that takes their favourite wallcrawler out of the MCU (NOTE: There are a few spoilers for Far From Home, including the post-credits cameo). Crofton then goes fully Spider-mad and falls into a replay of Spider-Man on PS4 and a rewatch of Spider-Man Homecoming… to say nothing of the imaginary Spider-Man playing his daughter is requested. It is Spider-Mania! Meanwhile, Ryan experiences Paw Patrol Mania and hits the theatres to see the pups on the big screen! All this and Kayden starts to ask the important questions about his body! Come listen!
The boys return from their respective family holidays to commiserate on how dang hard it is to do family holidays! They compare vacation notes, from cottages to shacks, from Sandbanks to the glorious wonders of Lake Simco beaches. Ryan and Crofton then get down to brass tacks and discuss some geekery – namely Persona 5 and Fire Emblem Three Houses, asking the question that nobody has the guts to address: “Were they separated at birth?”
The boys are back and delve deep in the dungeon as Crofton falls down the bottomless pit (of joy) that is Xbox Game Pass while Ryan explains why he pays 80 dollars per game (like a sucker!) instead. Ryan decides that he needs to take Crofton to school… the Fire Emblem school! Kayden balances not being able to see out of his eyes with playing soccer while Gwen takes a sledge hammer to some Zelda chickens. All of this and an update on Crofton’s stolen bike too! Come listen!
Crofton’s daughter Gwen learns a harsh life lesson when her scooter is stolen. Her father tries to console her but reacts poorly when his bike also gets ripped. Ryan attempts to console Crofton with tales of his favourite fictional character, Spider-Man, and his journey Far From Home. The boys compare notes on Stranger Things. Crofton’s descent into despair continues with Clara getting roseala and being sick all week. Ryan and Kayden hit the Mario Maker hard like a true father amd son. All that and Zelda too! Come listen!
Crofton and Ryan prepare for the end of the school year and the beginning of summer by reminiscing about the good times they have had, like that one time Ryan went to Crofton’s house for bagels (pronounced bay-gulls), For Father’s Day, Crofton went on an epic binge into the world(s) of Twilight Imperium while Ryan prepared for his upcoming Mario Maker weekend by having his son pre-design a level with stickers. That last bit is actually a thing that happened. Finally, the boys hunker down to talk about the topics that matter – including politics in kindergarten and the Toronto Zoo. Stay awhile and listen!
