My goal with this family-friendly TTRPG podcast list:
My goal is to help you find a tabletop RPG or D&D 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 judgements in tabletop RPG podcasts:
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, especially when it comes to tabletop RPG content, 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 a podcast or remove it from the list if I am aware that it has become overly violent, or includes mature content and does not provide appropriate trigger warnings.
Recommendations and corrections to the podcast list:
If you have recommendations for additional family-friendly tabletop RPG 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 tabletop RPG podcasts that are specifically listed as family-friendly or are confirmed by the cast that they are family-friendly versus podcasts that just tend to play that direction. I have made exceptions for a few that I actively listen to because I can adjust the list if things go out of the family-friendly zone, but aside from those, I want to keep these specifically composed of family focused tabletop RPG podcasts so I’m not leading anyone astray if the podcast’s tone changes.
