My goal with this list:
My goal is to help you find a podcast that you can listen to with your family!
I enjoy listening to podcasts with my son since it helps him with language development, and it also helps me to keep my mind busy. I can have one of these playing while doing chores and not worry about if he overhears from the other room while coloring. It did however take me some time to find a lot of these or realize that there were family-friendly TTRPG podcasts out there, so I am hoping that this helps you to jump right in!
Combat and content judgement:
This list only has podcasts that are billed as family-friendly in their descriptions or that I have listened to and get a family-oriented vibe from. That said, everyone has a different interpretation of what is appropriate for their family, so I encourage you to use your judgement as well.
Most, if not all, of these podcasts do have some level of combat or fighting, so please know that going in. However, I will flag them or remove from the list if I am aware that become violent and do not provide trigger warnings.
Recommendations and corrections:
If you have recommendations for additional podcasts to add or if you see a correction is needed, please contact me through the site’s contact form. I am happy to make updates and want all my information to be correct.
For recommendations, this list’s goal is to have podcasts that are specifically listed as family-friendly (FF) or are confirmed by the cast that they are FF versus podcasts that just tend to play that direction. I have made exceptions for a few because that I actively listen to because I can adjust the list if things go out of the FF zone, but aside from those, I want to keep these specifically from FF billed podcasts so I’m not leading anyone astray if the podcast’s tone changes.
