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.

Thanks for this. Been looking for some info like this for a while now. Just getting started with my kids for some weekend D&D. I was looking for some AP D&D podcasts for them to listen to that wasn’t “adult”.
Admiring the hard work you put into your blog and in depth information you present.
It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that
isn’t the same old rehashed material. Wonderful read!
I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS
feeds to my Google account.
Thank you! This is a wonderful compliment (I wanted to go for some depth and discussion), and I am really glad you’re finding the blog helpful and intriguing!
fantastic post, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector do not realize this. You must proceed your writing. I am confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!
Glad it is a helpful article! TTRPG’s with kids is a game-changer (sorry for the pun), and having kid-friendly podcasts is like screen-free stories that hype them up for playing games later too. I’m hoping this helps raise awareness and we get way more people started out playing games with their kids OR more creators making kid-focused TTRPG content!
I do consider all of the concepts you have introduced
to your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work.
Nonetheless, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please extend them
a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
I’m glad you’re finding this useful!
And certainly! I release 1-2 articles per week with new info, tips, reviews, etc and update the existing articles (like this podcast list) when I come across new creators in the kid-friendly TTRPG space. If you’re interested in keeping up to date, I send out a monthly newsletter with a summary of any new releases and updates: https://www.ttrpgkids.com/subscribe/
great put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don’t understand this. You should proceed your writing. I am confident, you have a great readers’ base already!
Thank you! I’m really glad this is helping, and I do hope it sparks some more kid-focused podcasts!
Looking to concentrate on reading more. Great article post. Really thank you! Awesome.
Heyy very nice blog!
