Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The parents' guide to what's in this podcast.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the hosts of Spitballers Comedy Podcast talk about their opinions on hypothetical scenarios and rankings lists, regularly veering into potty humor, imagined violence, and light insults. The three white male hosts model some creativity and kindness as they laugh with one another over the course of an hour. The hosts and producer are the same as those for Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast.

What’s It About?
In each weekly hour-long episode of SPITBALLERS COMEDY PODCAST, the team from Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast chat and laugh together about random topics and hypothetical situations. For example, they discuss: Would you rather freeze to death in a blizzard, or die of heat in the desert? What are your top fruit candies? Would you rather ride on Aladdin's magic carpet, or Harry Potter's broomstick? Listeners can submit would-you-rather questions or other discussion ideas on the website, then hear Andy, Mike, and Jason talk and laugh about them. The hosts discuss brands, movies, and companies, and much of the humor comes from friendly competitiveness, light insults, potty humor, and scenarios involving fake violence, such as deciding whether they'd rather be the world's best martial artist, or the world's worst Jedi. Episodes do not touch on current events, cross-cultural perspectives, historical contexts, or educational content.
Is It Any Good?
Hearing three adult guys talk and laugh about generally harmless topics might be comforting for some listeners. Spitballers Comedy Podcast is sometimes funny and creative. The absence of any meaningful content, diverse perspectives, educational value, or good take-home messages might be exactly the point, but makes this podcast a better pick for adults passing the time than families seeking worthwhile listens for kids.
You should avoid listening to Spitballers Comedy Podcast with children if you want to spare them imaginary violence, potty humor, mentions of excessive drinking, names of junk food and products, and light insults.
