In this episode of TTRPGkids on Ludology Podcast, I discuss how to create a TTRPG setting that fits the interests of young players! While these tips can be used for any age, they’re particularly important for using with youth who may have some pretty different fandoms and story preferences from grown ups who are running the game.
This episode of TTRPGkids on Ludology Podcast is all about using safety tools and setting ground rules in TTRPGs with kids – these tools are critical to making sure everyone feels comfortable and wants to come back to the game AND it’s important to make sure that young players can understand them and use the well.
In the second episode of TTRPGkids on Ludology Podcast, I chat about how a kid’s behavior in game can mean something totally different from what you’d expect and how to turn “villain” choices into something positive for later.
For the next year, TTRPGkids will be hosting a monthly show on Ludology Podcast where I’ll be chatting about making games adaptable for kids, using TTRPGs for education, highlighting some cool games, and more! Check out here for the link to Episode 1!

I exchanged interviews with Nick from Raised on DnD podcast and had a great time chatting about his introduction to TTRPGs, how he introduced TTRPGs to his kids as young as 2.5, and how gaming has benefited his family! He runs an awesome show that has featured guests including his own kids and Luke Gygax, and he has a clear passion for family gaming that I hope can help inspire you to get into it as well!
I interviewed Jamie and Lawrence from the Dad’s & Dragons podcast! I have been listening to their podcast for months, and it was very awesome to get the chance to chat. We talked about how they got into D&D, how they have been playing D&D with their families, and their approach to gaming with their kids!
