The Baby-Sitters Club series analyzed in great depth by two thirty-something men is surprisingly addictive.

Description

Jack Shepherd and Tanner Greenring discuss the classic Baby-Sitters Club novels of Ann M. Martin in chronological order. Get ready to look with new eyes at the timeless adventures of Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey, and I guess Dawn. And probably Mallory too. Fine, and Jessi.

Episode Date
California Diaries: Ducky (Two)
01:16:11

YNAW, Poundmasters! Ann gave us a sensitive and heavy topic to chew on this week, so we stepped up to the plate like we always do in these situations and did a really deep dive into some other stuff entirely! Look for an extremely detailed conspiracy theory involving Freddy Prinze Jr., some powerful new insights into what’s going on with Ducky, and a surprisingly lengthy discussion of the marginally successful 2001 film Thirteen Ghosts.

California Diaries: Amalia (Two)
01:22:57

Which of us would not sacrifice the very world for just one glimpse of his baggy jeans; his suave super-gelled Brian Austin Green hair; his shy, bluish-green eyes; his edgy but approachable Operation Ivy T-shirt? His name is Brendan Jones, formerly of Short Hills, New Jersey. And he gave Amalia a single rose at the Homecoming Bash during that one Vanish song. You know the one.

But to be [a broody teen] was very heaven.”

California Diaries: Maggie (Two)
01:10:17

The boys settle in for a pleasant and relaxing evening babysitting a gaggle of grumpy teens. Truth Translation: We’re pretty out of our depth here! Things are totally going off the rails with Maggie, and Dawn’s not helping, and Sunny is MIA, and there’s no more box wine in the cabinet because we already drank it all to calm our nerves THIS MORNING!!! OK, deep breath. Everything’s fine. We’re fine. Nothing to worry about here. Truth Translation: *muffled screams.*

California Diaries: Dawn (Two)
01:14:10

Dawn’s stepmother Carol is in the hospital getting ready to bring new life into the world. Sunny’s mother is in the very same hospital looking at the light at the end of the tunnel. Her intentions fall to the floor. It is at this point that the angel closes her eyes, and the confusion that was hers belongs now to the baby down the hall.

I can feel it.

Not to belabor the point, but in this one, lightning ... definitely ... crashes.

California Diaries: Sunny (Two)
01:16:48

Sunny is in a bad mood because of circumstances beyond her control and she’s being a glum plum and bringing everybody down, which is fine, it happens, but that doesn’t mean that it’s OK for her to lash out and take it out on her friends who are just trying to help her. But I don’t know what to do and like I said it’s not my fault and I’m sorry but I’m not really sorry I’m just feeling out of sorts and wait, who are we talking about again? Anyway, this one’s a good one. Pete wrote it I think.

California Diaries: Ducky (One)
01:15:27

The Cro-Mags are whispering to each other and snickering, as if you’re too dumb or too INVISIBLE to figure out that they’re laughing at YOU. So you do the only thing you can do: You grab your Discman and put on your headphones and lose yourself in the latest episode of the California Diaries, where the boys are talking about The Purge and Resident Evil and a bunch of other stuff that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense but ANYTHING is better than Cro-Mags. Anything is better than trying to be something you’re not for people who barely even know who you are.

California Diaries: Amalia (One)
01:12:57

It took four books, but we finally get a taste of that Good Clean Baby-Sitting Fun we’ve been so desperately craving this week, from the unlikely direction of Amalia Vargas. She isn’t even in the We Heart Kids Club, but she took pity on us and stopped by a women’s shelter to look after some kids on the way to break up with her toxic boyfriend. A truly scintillating novel, made even more so by the thoughtful inclusion of baby-sitting. Was that so difficult?

01:11:08

When you have a choice between watching the star-studded world premiere of “Fatal Judgment” or being in the crowd at the Battle of the Bands for the first-ever performance by Vanish featuring Maggie Blume on keyboards and backup vocals, there’s only one choice you can make: Go to both of them. That’s right, the boys have front-row seats at both of the hottest tickets in Palo City this week, and you can be sure they’re gonna be wearing their extra-large Jncos.

California Diaries: Sunny (One)
01:11:32

Everything is still very, very late '90s out here in California and we're all pretty worked up about it. But we're grown adults, so we're going to do the only responsible thing we can in the situation: Throw a copy of "On the Road" into our Jansports, strap on our blades, and blow off class for a day at the beach with a handsome and slightly suspicious drifter named Carson. Hope is a disease.

California Diaries: Dawn (One)
01:09:27

Edgier, more grownup, full of alcohol and angst and bad decisions. Cool. Sullen. Sarcastic. Mad at the whole world and ready to explode. These are just a few words to describe podcast hosts Jack Shepherd and Tanner Greenring. And this week, they’re embarking on an exciting new journey as they follow the BSC’s Dawn Schafer across the country to sunny California for fun, frolicking, and friendship! I wonder what new babies she will sit and what kind of wholesome and agreeable things she will get up to!

BSCCD-ROM: The Baby-Sitters Club Friendship Kit
01:14:34

A wonderfully surreal and slightly scary world awaits all those who are brave enough to crawl through the looking glass, speak their own secret names aloud, and become new initiates of the legendary Baby-Sitters Club. But this is just the beginning of the quest, and danger awaits: Will the boys be confounded by the deadly Puzzle Box, disoriented by the mysterious Map Game, or debilitated by the incessant ringing of Claudia’s terrible telephone? Answers: Yes, yes, and yes. Fortunately, these guys are professional gamers, so there’s probably no need to worry.

BSCBBs 009 - Shannon's Story
01:05:54

Trained from a young age by an elite academy for assassins, Associate Baby-Sitter Shannon Kilbourne is ready for the biggest mission of her life when she runs into resistance from the place she least expects it: Her own mother. The boys travel back in time from the dystopian wasteland they’ve been trapped in to learn more about Shannon’s Story in a last, desperate attempt to save the future before the BSC Readers’ Request books run out. Oh, and Mrs. Barrett was in this one and, um, she was … um, very good in the baseball game we thought!

BSCBBs 008 - Logan Bruno, Boy Baby-Sitter
01:05:02

The boys head back in time to get frisky with some whales and check up on what Logan Bruno’s up to, which, WOW! He’s fallen in with a group of ‘50s greasers called The Badd Boyz and led by a cigarette-smoking, shoplifting, leather-jacket-wearing rude dude called T-Jam who makes Stacey’s well-documented Wine Crimes look like a walk in the park. And that’s all real! That’s what this wonderful book is actually about. What a gift. What a time to be alive.

BSCBBs 007: Logan's Story
01:12:14

The boys are both canceled this week, sadly, along with Pete Black, Logan, and everybody else on the SMS Gladiators track team except Austin Bentley. And this is their YouTube Apology video. But despite the setback (and another more extreme one that has trapped one of them in 18th Century Glasgow), they valiantly make their way through this fascinating Readers’ Request about Logan Bruno. ‘Cuz Ann finally made one that’s just for the guys.

BSCBBs 006 - Abby's Book
01:10:38

Jack takes a seat on the bench so that Regular Tanner and Future Tanner can solve the maddening puzzle that Jeanne Betancourt has created this week in the form of “Abby’s Book.” This mostly involves being incredibly sad about the fate of the surprisingly handsome Jonathan Stevenson, who — as fans of the BSC know all too well — went to ride the Rainbow Road far too soon.

The Lerangismas Episode

The war on Lerangismas is over! The era of Pete has begun! The boys gather on a snowy night to share some Lerangismas cheer and talk about their very favorite Lerangismas hymns.

BSCBBs 005 - Kristy's Book
01:13:10

With a little bit of help from their best friend Doctor Who, the boys take a magic phone box into the past and hang out with some of history’s most excellent people as they attempt to decipher the sacred text known as Kristy’s Book. Is Patrick Thomas really as unpleasant as he seems? Can we finally get to the bottom of what’s going on with Kristy and Bart? And how on Earth do you pronounce “Jeanne”? Only Isaac Newton knows the answers, apparently.

BSCBBs 004 - Mary Anne's Book
01:10:27

Our adorable Time Babies run into an impenetrable temporal anomaly inside a beautiful and possibly slightly magical Lake House as they navigate their way deep into Mary Anne’s past to find out what happened to Alma, why Kristy and Claudia have been acting so strange lately, and what it is exactly that farmers do when they’re standing out in their fields. And with a little help from their very best friends, Baby Terminator and Baby John Connor, they might just find their way back to a future that we can all be happy with. But probably not!

BSCBBs 003 - Dawn's Book
01:07:39

The boys invent a nifty little machine in their garage that creates a time loop which will allow them to go all the way back to 1995 and attempt to foil a nefarious plot by Baby-Sitters Club ghostwriter Jeanne Betancourt to make it seem like she came up with all of the BSC lore before anyone else did. And it all goes horribly, horribly, horribly wrong.

01:08:43

Our intrepid Time Babies take another trip back to save the future, this time into Claudia Kishi’s past, where the Great One (She Who Lurks in the Darkness and Devours the Innocent) lurks. It’s all pretty scary and this is a scare warning!

BSCBBs 001 - Stacey's Book
01:08:16

Lobstrosities, Clone People, a malevolent Cloud AI ... and they’re all converging on the sweet, sweet feet of the sweetest Baby-Sitters Club Ghostwriter we know. But that’s not even the worst of it. The worst of it is that there’s only two guys who can stop it, and they’re Time Babies. This godforsaken mess (and more!) is what you get when the boys attempt to read about the ancient past of the BSC in the pages of the Portrait Collection. This week, “Stacey’s Book.” Strap in.

Daddy Eats Cat Food
01:32:09

Daddy and Tanner get some expert help as they navigate the sparse and unforgiving terrain they seem to have navigated themselves into after finishing the Baby-Sitters Club Mysteries. With no birds interested in taking them, and no more guidance from the ethereal voices of Ann M. Martin and Elle Fanning, desperation has set in as the boys wander, naked and bewildered, in the desert. And to make matters worse, they're starting to get hungry ...

BSCAC 001 - Kristy's Great Idea Audio Book
01:10:57

OK, so someone called “Elle Fanning” went back and changed a bunch of things in this one, but you know what she couldn’t hide? THE TRUTH. This week, on a very special episode of the Baby-Sitters Club Audio Club, the boys are going back to where it all started, except this time they’re actually LISTENING. And guess what they find out? That every single thing they ever suspected about these books was right, and nobody – least of all Elle Fanning – is going to keep that from coming out. Anyway, Kristy’s back having the idea for the Baby-Sitters Club again in this one and getting ready to do the whole thing all over again and it’s frankly pretty wonderful.

BSCMC 036 - Kristy and the Cat Burglar
01:08:14

Well, it was always going to end in cat burglars, but if any of us had even begun to suspect who those cats and who those burglars were, let alone what horrible things they had in store for the dreamy Sergeant Johnson, we might never have embarked on this dangerous and mysterious quest in the first place. The Grey Man is here of course, and Tanner uses the dark arts of “Numberology” to solve the Ultimate Mystery, and Kristy and Cary Retlin are kidnapped by a literal gun criminal. What a way to go out! All that and more in the final Baby-Sitters Club Mystery Club before the boys crawl into a field and let the birds take them.

BSCMC 035 - Abby and the Notorious Neighbor
01:12:18

Detective Tanner and Gumshoe Jack wade into a mystery that they are fundamentally ill equipped to solve, featuring not just Abby Stevenson, but a beloved and dangerous Marvel hero, the entire crew from “Mystery Men,” an ascended Lawnmower Man version of Janine Kishi, and a stone cold hottie who’s been hiding in plain sight this whole time. Oh, and also Cenobites! And Kristy. Kristy’s in this one too. Ellen Miles did a whole lot with some pretty limited space this week.

BSCMC 034 - Mary Anne and the Haunted Bookstore
01:06:38

An illuminating peek inside the writing process of the mysterious Vicki Berger Erwin, this scintillating episode takes you where no other Baby-Sitters Club criticism has ever dared: Into the eye of the furious storm that is created when a BSC ghostwriter at the top of her abilities is unshackled and given free reign to make art that will change us forever. Anyway, this art has Mary Anne in it, and weirdly, Edgar Allen Poe, and also lots of birds and if there are any bird scientists out there, we desperately need your help.

BSCMC 033 - Stacey and the Stolen Hearts
01:05:40

Someone stole a bag from Stacey, but more importantly, someone stole Pete Black's heart, and we're not going to rest until they're behind bars where they belong. Meanwhile, Cary Retlin is stealing the show with his breathtaking coolness, Ellen Miles is stealing every single BSC B-Plot by having Kristy throw together some kind of Baby Parade, and Hodges Soileau is stealing Stacey's hair, which is troubling to say the least. Anyway, the primary mystery this week is that some Valentines have gone missing, and Stacey McGill is on the case. Unclear whether we cover any of that in the episode.

BSCMC 032 - Claudia and the Mystery Painting
01:10:57

Art is a mystery, and the mystery we read this week was certainly a work of art because this week’s mystery was surging with VBE ENERGY! That’s right, Vicki Berger Erwin is back at the helm of the BSC books once again, so expect a lot of intrigue, villainy, strange POVs from dogs, and historical true crime. And it’s not just the scintillating book itself that will keep you on the edge of your seat, because this week’s episode is quite an affair… a Thomas Crown Affair. (Which I only mention because Jack didn’t seem to know the film and we shot by it pretty quickly.) Also, if anyone has seen or heard from Liz or Carys please let them know that we miss them and hope they come back to the show soon.

BSCMC 031 - Mary Anne and the Music Box Secret
01:04:42

Mary Anne discovered the freaking LAMENT CONFIGURATION in a wall this week and all hell quite literally broke loose. Meanwhile, the DeWitts are building an extension on their house, which, as a B-plot, doesn’t quite live up to the chills and thrills of the A-plot, but it’s certainly something to think about. Oh, and there’s a Sailor/Ghost. But don’t worry, this episode is not all scares – it’s also surprisingly sexy?

BSCMC 030 - Kristy And The Mystery Train
01:08:42

“A sense of endearing honesty permeates this episode, which is far more than anyone can say about Jack and Tanner’s subsequent work. It’s a shame that they decided not to continue down the path of laid-back, twangy roots podcasting, but alas, the taste of “BSCMC 030 - Kristy and the Train Mystery’s” success on the podcast charts proved to be too much to resist. Jack and Tanner’s podcasting contemporaries like the Wallflowers and Counting Crows ended up more-or-less fading from the spotlight by the turn of the century, so maybe they made the right financial decision. But more than anything, I can sum this podcast up as a sort of a snapshot – a snapshot of two talented, undiscovered podcasters trying to make the best podcast they can make, before the power of record labels and the allure of popularity inevitably took their toll.”

01:07:51

Somebody’s poisoning fashion teens this week, but don’t worry because Stacey McGill and her best friends Abraham Lincoln, Drop Dead Fred, and Wolverine are on the case! Meanwhile, Kristy is busy BLAZING a trail that the KIND people of STONEYbrook will never forget. It’s about weed. Oh, and Ellen Miles has a chilling message for the boys.

BSCMC 028 - Abby and the Mystery Baby
01:11:07

To paraphrase Joe Pantoliano’s character Cypher in The Matrix, “You know, I know this mystery doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my eyes, Ellen Miles is telling my brain that it is intriguing and cryptic. After four years, you know what I realize? Ignorance is bliss.” That’s right, there was arguably no mystery once again in this week’s Baby-Sitters Club Mystery book, much like how the film Three Men and a Baby is not a fun romp about three men raising a baby, but instead a gritty action film about drugs and the mafia, but we loved both regardless of how far they may have missed the mark.

BSCMC 027 - Claudia and the Lighthouse Ghost
01:07:31

'Tis the season for lighthouse ghosts, alien beehives, and AI-enabled thermonuclear devastation, and there's only one person in the whole wide world who could bring you all of that and more wrapped up in a (technically) Holiday-themed Baby-Sitters Club book. So if you detect a hint of exuberance in the boys' voices this week it's either because this scintillating novel is a beautiful gift, or it’s not exuberance at all but incipient panic about the fact that we just found out for certain that ghosts are real. Sorry. Scare warning. Anyway, Claudia and Janine both have eyes for this hunk named Steve and ghosts are real and a boy died. Enjoy!

BSCMC 026 - Dawn Schafer Undercover Baby-Sitter
01:10:55

It’s an undercover episode, by which we mean, it’s a totally normal episode and not really different in any way from any other episode of the show, according to Ellen’s definition of “undercover” apparently. But don’t worry, we take Ellen to task, and so does Hodges, weirdly. There actually seems to be a lot of bad blood between Ellen and Hodges and we’re not going to take sides. Also, there’s an exciting new segment/Gothic prom for your fridge fetishists out there!

BSCMC 025 - Kristy and the Middle School Vandal
01:08:07

Who likes mysteries? We hope you do, because it’s time to get wet, wild, and wiggly for some horny mystery action with Nola, who's back, stacked, and Thacker than ever! Light spoilers in this one for Medieval European History, the fall of Rome, and parts of The Canterbury Tales. Oh and a teeny, tiny Scare Warning because of the bats and the patriotic witches, and because Kristy peers deep into the darkest part of her soul at a memory that she wishes would stay buried. But mostly this one’s just wet, wild, wiggly, and, as we mentioned, horny. Enjoy!

BSCMC 024 - Mary Anne and the Silent Witness
01:08:41

Huge news this week, Riddlebabies. We think we uncovered the origins of *69, and it’s way raunchier than you probably imagined. (Also, for younger listeners, we don’t have time to explain *69, so just Google it.) Also, Cyril makes an extended appearance and gives a middling performance (at best) saying “why why.” Oh, and there was a BSC Mystery book somewhere in there. We touch on it a bit.

BSCMC 023 - Abby and the Secret Society
01:07:20

It’s Abby’s first mystery, which means we’re hurtling at 99% of the speed of light toward the messy end of this thing wherein the birds eat our souls and The Gray Man who is behind it all nods once, lights a cigarette, and walks into the sunset. But there’s no time to think about that because this one’s very complicated! Ann and Ellen killed a man, Sergeant Johnson is more than willing to put a bunch of teens in mortal danger to solve the crime, and Cary Retlin just wants to watch the world burn.

01:12:19

It’s Cake Week this week, and our star bakers – Claudia Kishi, Mary Anne Spier, and Shea Rodowsky – are getting ready to wow the judges with their rat poison and salt chocolate-cherry gateau. Better keep this one away from Mr. Spier though, because he’s got a strange glint in his eye that suggests he has other plans for this naughty little dessert. … And the devil laughs.

BSCMC 020 - Mary Anne and the Zoo Mystery
01:17:17

The Entity is back! And we wrote an incredible mystery book. We think we’ll really get a kick out of where our episode goes this week. We filled the episode with laughs and sound effects and whales and human children! Listen to our screams of glee as we study the whales! Listen to the our chorus of shrieks! “The whales!”, we shout, “the whales!” We also discuss alternate worlds, bug balls, how we pronounce the word “emu’ and we made the whole episode epistolary because we needed cover for the fact that Tanner’s co-working space was so full of people, so don’t be surprised if we hear from our friends Goliath and Mark Markson.

Wa-BSCMC 019 - Kristy and the Missing Fortune
01:12:17

It’s an Evil Episode this week, folks. Everything that should be right-side-up is upside down. Everything that should be clockwise is widdershins, and everything that should be “hoorah!” is just “Wa.” What does that mean for you? Well, for one thing the (Evil) boys talk about sports. A lot. And Bib Fortuna. And there’s an ancient evil lurking deep in Stoneybrook’s past that is reaching out its tendrils through the clocks to collapse time and space and swallow the BSC in the nameless void. So, not all that different from a non-evil episode, but please do be very careful with this one.

W♥KCMC 017 - Dawn and the Halloween Mystery
01:14:17

Welcome to the City Council meeting for Palo City! Quite a full agenda this week, as we’ll need to decide whether or not to cancel Halloween this year and declare martial law, or whether to just allow these vicious Supernatural Murder Clowns to run rampant through our beautiful town, leaving rivers of blood and carnage in their wake. We will also be standing in judgement of Dawn Schaefer, because we’re all getting pretty tired of her inability to pick a coast to live on. And if anyone knows what’s behind that small, creepy door that definitely wasn’t in this room before, now would be a great time to speak up ...

BSCMC 016 - Claudia and the Clue in the Photograph
01:16:48

Have you ever looked at a photograph that really made you laugh? Like, why were your eyes so red and what the hell was on Joey’s head? That’s precisely what Claudia and her friends in the Baby-Sitter’s Club did this week, except instead of red eyes, it was red hands! Because they caught someone stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars red-handed! And instead of wondering what what the hell is on Joey’s head, they’re wondering if head’s will role when the Stoneybrook PD finally catches up to the bank heist bandit. Also, Tanner has a kid now, which is pretty exciting. Sorry about all the Dad Talk™.

01:07:42

Your two favorite disaffected but lovable Goths sink their Hot Topic fangs into more ‘90s horror this week, with a bone-chilling look at the famously “cursed” straight-to-TV vampire movie “Little Vampires.” Filmed on location in Stoneybrook, CT, where a number of near-fatal accidents disrupted the set (until the would-be-murderer was captured by a pair of meddling baby-sitters) “Little Vampires” stars heartthrob Carson Fraser (more famous for his role in “Miami Beach, USA”) and P.S. 162’s Derek Masters. The unsolved mystery here is why the Director chose to film this one in Stoneybrook, of all places, but it’s fair to say that the sleepy Connecticut town was … not prepared.

01:06:54

Internal Investigations notes, week 13:

We got ‘em! These dangerous Private Investigators have made their last mistake, and as soon as we release this damning report to the world, Mary Anne, Kristy, Stacey, Claudia, and Jessi will have their detectives’ licenses permanently revoked. Another job well done by the Internal Investigations team, who have uncovered countless procedural errors, including illegally assuming false identities to antagonize peaceful protestors, overzealous prosecution of fashion crimes, and endangering a small child. We also discovered something very spooky and evil lurking in the dark corners of this town, so we’d like to wrap this case right away so we can get out of here as soon as possible! Oh, and we’d like to recommend an extremely promising new recruit named Alan Gray for the team. This kid’s gonna go far.

Hang ten, Riptide Babies! Your favorite cheeba/Stoppard heads, Weed Lord and Half-Pipe, are back all the way from sunny California! The fog is rolling in and the screamers are out for blood, so ghouls and grommets alike should paddle in, because when the surfer ghost is out to get you, you’re bound to get got. Also, there really wasn’t a B-plot this week, so don’t expect to hear much about one. Party on, Riptide Babies! And don’t forget to save a toke for me! (A toke of drugs, to be clear.)

01:09:30

There’s suddenly a massive, new, multi-story, premiere art gallery in Stoneybrook, which would be enough of a mystery by itself if it weren’t for the mystery of how many freaking crimes are getting committed in this darn thing! Not to mention the mystery of all the “Lewks” Baby-Sitters Club Art Director Hodges Soileau is serving this week and whether he is, in fact, Daddy. Then there’s the mystery of the Skeleton Faction, the number 1016, and what, precisely, Claudia is wearing this week. Fortunately we have two of the world’s biggest idiots on the case, so expect plenty of coherent answers to all of these questions!

Bad news. Stacey is a crime girl again. She just can’t help herself, she’s as drawn to crime as she is hot and horny young men, like Terry/David Hoyt/Hawthorne. This week, the girls solve a mystery, but like, an actual mystery. Who is trying to pass off counterfeit bills all over Stoneybrook? Is it the nefarious English teacher, Mr. Fisk? Is it Stacey’s new lover? Is it the savior of the Dunmer people and the hero of Morrowind, the Nerevarine? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Meanwhile, the Pike boys are living backwards, Mary Anne finds a runaway bride in a sewing shop, and a couple of experts drop by to offer their thoughtful, modern, and inspired expertise in what is sure to become an instant classic segment for our most fashion forward listeners. As usual, a surprising and possibly unwelcome amount of poetry, and this week … some insight into what may have happened on those fateful days leading up to June 10.

Also, Ellen and Ann forgot to put a mystery in this one. Oh well!

01:10:21

A searing indictment of Minnesota’s police force specifically, this brave episode goes where no previous episode has dared to go: Right to the source of all the True Crime that everybody’s doing these days! And that includes the international dong-thievery that is taking place in Stoneybrook itself, the cat kissing and the dog licking that is all too rampant in today’s society, and the equally troubling (if not technically illegal) way in which Mary Anne talks about Dawn’s mom’s perfectly nice tofu curry. Alright, people, let’s find out who’s been stealing all these dogs! (Spoilers for Beastmaster.)

01:07:18

“Mystery” is generous for this book because there was not really much of a mystery, but it was a pretty fun book and discussion! When Janine “The Janenius” Kishi begins to act strange around her family, they begin to wonder if she’s fallen in with a bad crowd. But, she hasn’t. She just has a super hunky boyfriend now called Jerry. Mystery solved. Lots of X eye for the Y guy discussion, so all the ~fashionistas~ out there in Baby Nation should get a kick out of Jack and Tanner’s complete misunderstanding of all things fashion.

To unlock the SECRETS of Mary Anne’s origins; to decipher the PUZZLE of the universe’s most mysterious clock; the RIDDLE of Logan’s nipples; the ENIGMA of the Warp Whistles in Super Mario Bros. 3; and the REBUS that is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s most MYSTERIOUS film. Most importantly, prepare to solve the perplexing CONUNDRUM of whether the boys are going to find an insanely complex and breathtakingly chaotic way of doing segments, which are traditionally supposed to provide structural simplicity and order! And, of course, prepare yourself for an answer to the greatest MYSTERY of all: What on Earth are these boys going to talk about now that they’ve read all the main canon books and Super Specials????? (Oh, also, prepare to cry, because this one's a sad one.)

The Baby-Sitters Club Movie

The boys originally wanted to buy themselves a week to figure out what they’re going to do now that they’re out of Super Special books, but boy did they have fun watching the Baby-Sitters Club movie, or as Jack repeatedly called it, “the book.” Ann, Dalene, and Susan DeSanto confirmed so many popular theories this week, and they did so VISUALLY. Economy of Holes! Bread theory! Living Dolls! Bees! Magical Owls! All that and more!

BSCSC 015 - Baby-sitters' European Vacation
01:16:02

This is a time for sobriety and reflection as the boys gaze bravely into oblivion. Shattered by the loss of a dear, innocent friend who was betrayed by those who should have protected him, they must step forward, alone, into a future devoid of Super Specials. But before they do, a loving look back at this really great final book! Jessi has committed a series of cold-blooded murders, Alan Gray’s joined the Stoneybrook Liberation Front, and Kristy’s doing kissing and arm stuff with a Canadian! This is Pete Lerangis’s swan song and his magnum opus and it is so much better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

01:21:28

Wow! This book was a banger. You’ve never heard two boys who are more excited to talk about a BSC book. The girls FINALLY make it to America, and they do it all! They confront America’s dark past at a plantation turned slavery museum. They marvel at the splendor of the Grand Canyon. They go to the MALL OF AMERICA! Also, maybe it’s because we’re kinda getting down to the wire and don’t have any real plans for what comes next, but we get a little punchy, and when we get punchy, we tend to sing. A lot.

01:16:27

Stacey’s chopper is down and she’s missing in the jungles of Hawaii. Meanwhile, back in Stoneybrook, Mallory has alienated a potential client by mishandling a tantrum. Are these two crises treated with equal gravity and concern in this novel? Yes. Because this is the Baby-Sitters Club, and, frankly, Stacey is expendable. Fair warning: This one’s rated R, not just because of the helicopter carnage, but because there is a surprising amount of Arm Stuff, and some EXTREMELY enlightening new rules for the delicate dance known as Da Bonky. Have fun and be careful!

BSCC Live: Super Mystery 001: Baby-Sitters Haunted House
01:21:56

Live at Littlefield in Brooklyn, NY, the boys dig deep into one of the greatest mysteries of all time: What the heck is going on with ghostwriter Jeanne Betancourt and her twisted blood orgies? It may just be part of her writing process for these Super Mysteries, in which case it worked! Plenty of spooky ghosts, scary vampires, and unsavory teenage boys in this one, not to mention a whole mess of parades, because Stoneybrook has finally gone fully off the deep end. This is the first (and therefore, currently, best) BSCC live show! Avoid this one if you're scandalized by wine crimes.

High Brow/Low Brow 001
01:06:45

It’s pilot three of three! Now that we’re teetering on the edge of uncertainty, with only a couple Super Special books left before we need to find something new to podcast about, we’ve got one last podcast concept for you to check out.

This week, Tanner and Bolphunga the Unrelenting are trying something a little different. We’re calling it High Brow/Low Brow and it’s an exercise in drawing suppositional insights from a text or body of work in an effort to elevate that work to a level of discourse fitting the standards of academia. Which is to say that we talk about dumb stuff like comic books in a smart way. Oh, and vice versa.

This week, we’ve prepared two selections:


We hope you enjoy! We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled nonsense next week.

And hold onto your wedding veils because there’s a brand-new, extremely cool catchphrase in this one, as well as a surprising amount of Rusted Root.

01:10:57

Everyone remembers the 24 to 72 hours immediately preceding the first time they ever met Kristin Amanda Thomas. For most of the girls in the Baby-Sitters Club, the moment Kristy entered their lives, everything changed, because when you meet Kristy Thomas, all your problems seem to disappear. The same holds true for Jack and Tanner. Their lives have never been the same since first being introduced to Kristy and their fortunes, positive attitudes, and gainful employment records have never wavered since.

To the place where it all started, all those years ago – to the locus for those half-forgotten events of that tumultuous summer in Sea City when Stacey went boy crazy, a condition that affects her to this very day. And the consequences of this return to the past – of this “recherche du temps perdu” – will be cataclysmic. A great storm is coming. A hurricane. A tempest of rage and hurt and remembrance that threatens to consume everything in its path. And with the darkness preceding the deluge come other dark things. Things that crawl and creep and grasp with their tendrils and their tentacles. Things that devour. Here we come, Sea City. And may Heaven protect us from what follows.

BSCSC 009 - Starring the Baby-sitters Club!
01:07:28

“Electrifying. Dangerous. Masterful.”

Erik Anderson, AwardsWatch


“Revealing both the dangers and payoffs of artistic ambition, The Baby-Sitters Club Super Club #9 is sure to establish Greenring as a directorial force to be reckoned with.”

Emma Myers, IndieWire


“It would be an insult to call Shepherd a "promising" podcaster, as The Baby-Sitters Club Super Club #9 doesn't indicate mere potential - it is evidence of authentic, sometimes blazing talent.”

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times


The Baby-Sitters Club Super Club #9 is electric from beginning to end, a musical story of obsession, frustration and outright cruelty built on two knockout performances.”

Tom Long, Detroit News

BSCSC 008 - Baby-sitters at Shadow Lake
01:20:56

Shadow Lake holds many mysteries – including a disappearing family that haunts its islands and a big scary monster that lurks in in its depths – but Stacey McGill and Sam Thomas’s fiery, tumultuous romance is the biggest, juiciest mystery of all. Why is Stacey interested in Sam even though he insists on calling her “Dahling”? Why has Hodges painted Stacey with a pained grimace on her face as she and Sam dance? The boys dig into these pressing questions, with a short break to say a painful goodbye to a sad, old aquatic friend. Recommended reading this week: The 12th Century “Chansons de Geste” (preferably in the Old French), Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales” and “Troilus and Criseyde,” and “1,001 Email Closings and Valedictions,” by Flavio Olcese. Also: It’s UGC week this week, so don’t blame any of these segments on the boys.

1998: The Podcast 001
01:14:15

Welcome to pilot two of three! This week, Jack and Tanner go back to the first good year, the last good year, and possibly the only good year in living history: 1998. Each week on 1998: The Podcast, the boys will select some fondly remembered pieces of media from that fine year to discuss. This week, the selections are:


I'll go ahead and warn you in advance that your opinion on Tanner may be forever tarnished due to his views on the two Buffy episodes he watched and the character assassination he does against Willow. We hope you can manage to enjoy this pilot episode despite Tanner's obvious lack of taste of culture.

BSCSC 007 - Snowbound
01:16:41

Ann’s back with a whole lot more snow and a rare and surprising tribute to the heroic men who are so often unsung in these novels – He-Man’s friend Man-E-Faces, Jason X (or “Space Jason”), the Mouse King, Quint, and of course Logan Bruno, the dreamiest boy on two skis. Meanwhile, Stacey gets trapped in a car, Kristy has to hide her pajamas from Bart, and the horrifying Hounds of Tindalos are back again to drain your fluids with their hollow proboscises. And a brand new rule in the Wandering Frog People game! This one’s jam-packed.

BSCC: On Christmas Eve
00:36:41

For this bonus Holiday Special episode, the boys delve into a book that Ann has been trying to keep secret from us. A book so dangerous that it may hold the key to the door that forever opens our Snow Globe world to the powerful alien presence that skulks on its periphery, sniffing at the human souls it longs to possess, reaching with its tendriled hands towards all the little girls and boys building snowmen and roasting chestnuts over an open fire – oblivious to the terrors that lurk just a chimney's length away. The book is Ann M. Martin's standalone classic, "On Christmas Eve," and the ancient horror is Santa Himself. He's real, and he's coming to get you. Happy Holidays!

BSCSC 006: New York, New York!
01:12:10

This week the girls of the BSC fuggedaboutit! as they leave Stoneybrook and schlep to the mean hard streets of the Big Apple! Watch out, cause these bridge and tunnel kids are definitely walkin’ here! on their way to get a bagel with a schmear! from the nearest bodega! Then when they’re done with that, maybe they’ll wait on line and get a plain slice of pizza or a famous New York taco on Houston street, which is pronounced like “house-ton” and not like “hugh-ston” Also, the city is infested with Lovecraftian horrors the likes of which will rip your consciousness apart just by laying eyes on them. OINY!

BSCSC 005 - California Girls!
01:11:54

The BSC is undeniable this week. Fine, fresh, fierce, and they’ve got it on lock. Except of course when Stacey is committing Surf Crimes, Car Crimes, and a whole host of other felonious activities. Or when Mallory’s committing Fashion Crimes and Hair Crimes. Or when Kristy’s just being kind of generally overbearing. How come Katy Perry never talks about any of that when she’s naively singing the praises of these California Girls? That’s the real crime. Oh, also, an ancient evil is back, so prepare to be scared!

BSCSC 004 - Baby-Sitters' Island Adventure
01:13:18

The Baby-Sitters Club Super Special #4: Baby-Sitters' Island Adventure chronicles the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Claudia Kishi and Dawn Schafer in Stoneybrook in the course of an ordinary day, 10 June 1991. "Claudia" is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between the poem and the novel, with structural correspondences between the characters and experiences of Claudia/Dawn and Odysseus, Becca Ramsey and Penelope, and Jamie Newton and Telemachus, in addition to events and themes of the early 20th-century context of modernism, Stoneybrook, and Connecticut's relationship to Britain. The novel is highly allusive and also imitates the styles of different periods of English literature. [1]

SSVB 001 - Double Love
01:09:26

The pilot episode of the Sweet Sweet Valley Boys brings you deep into the heart of Sweet Valley, a mysterious enclave in a dystopian future where America has fractured into warring city-states and sentient machines stalk what remains of the continent. To make matters worse, Elizabeth wants to invite Todd to the dance, but Jessica is getting in her way by spreading lies! Meanwhile, Steve is bringing shame to the whole Wakefield clan by dating someone from the wrong side of the tracks, and Rick Andover is busy being as dangerous as he is handsome. Which is a lot. Also, the school is alive. Listen in as the boys immerse themselves in the confusing and frightening world of Sweet Valley High.

BSCSC 003 - Baby-Sitters' Winter Vacation
01:06:46

The Leicester Lounge hungers, and the only thing that can sate its twisted appetite is the laughter of children echoing through its halls. The girls do their dark work this week by first delivering themselves and other children to the Lodge and then by conspiring with greater powers to trap everyone within the Lodge forever. Will they ever see the light of day again? Will Leicester Lodge prove to be a mausoleum of ice? Will Claudia date an adult man, even though he has a wife and children? Find out on this week’s Baby-Sitters Club SUPER Club.

01:10:44

Welcome to Lake Whatever, where every man, woman, and baby-sitter who swims in its waters must come face-to-face with their greatest fear. A faceless monster, a trio of escaped murderers, a first true love, an unwanted makeover, and an especially amorous Logan Bruno are just a few of the trials that the girls must face this week, while the boys grapple with the difficult case law around what is and isn’t cool and develop a powerful – and incredibly dangerous – new catchphrase.

BSCC 136 - The Fire at Mary Anne's House, Part 2 of 2
01:38:46

As Jackie Rodowsky knows all too well, there is an infinity of possible worlds in the great expanse of existence, but even Jackie Rodowsky would tell you – with his birds’ eye view – that every single one of them is aflame right now. And as the great fire spreads, its indifferent tendrils creep towards some very familiar figures: The people of Stoneybrook, who stand arm in arm against the encroaching terror; Ann and her extraordinary ghostwriters, who are helpless to prevent it; and Mary Anne, whose tears have come too late. Also, the boys talk about their favorites from Queer Eye!

01:31:44

Kristy's trying to organize the BSC to enter a baby-sitting contest from a magazine, but Ann has other plans: To burn it all to the ground. Oh, and Mary Anne's house is alive. And it's calling to her. And no matter what we do to hold it back, the cleansing fire will consume us and transform us. But not before we graduate from Cool School! Welcome to part one of two episodes that will change the course of human history.

BSCC: The Hatchet Order
01:02:36

Sike! You thought!

Nope! Finale isn’t happening this week. Jack needed an extra week to work on the final episode(s). Instead, you get this special treat! Two preeminent scholars in their field will delight your senses with a complete walkthrough of the infamous Baby-Sitters Club “Hatchet Order.” Join them as they do an exhaustive book-by-book analysis (well, about a quarter of the books before they got bored) of the parallels and resonant melodies between BSC books 1 through 32 and books 100 through 131.

Or skip it and come back for The Fire At Mary Anne’s House next week. We’re not here to tell you how to live your life.

We hope that your time at our school is productive and useful, especially you young men out there.

BSCC 132: Kristy at Bat
01:09:49

Y’all ready for this? Tanner wasn’t, because he lost his notes. But honestly what decent person could truly be prepared to say goodbye to Kristy and leave her to the purging flames that Ann is preparing for the final novel in the Sitters’ Cycle? Only a monster would even ask the question. It’s not all doom and gloom though, because Kristy is as luminescent as ever in this book, bravely taking on Ann’s greatest fear even as her world closes in on her in a cataclysm of supervillains, dinosaurs, and sentient birds. Also, explicit warning: Arm stuff.

BSCC: Little Sister - Karen's Little Sister
00:34:08

Ever wished you could spend 30 full minutes hearing two grown men argue heatedly about the difference between a little sister and a middle sister? Well, if so, you’re in for quite a treat. Karen Brewer has a little sister on this week’s very special Little Sister: Little Episode, and the infuriating paradox that fact creates might just tear these boys apart.

BSCC 131 - Claudia and the Little Liar
01:08:37

This week the Baby-Sitters Club Club (BSCC) is more like the The Video-Games Club Club (VGCC) because gamer geek Suzanne couldn’t help herself and peppered this entire book with endless references to her favorite imported Japanese video games from the late 1990s. When she’s not going on and on about Crash Team Racing or Rockman, Suzanne did manage to find a few pages to discuss Haley Braddock’s lies, Claudia’s break-up, and DEFINITELY NOT purple orbs.

01:09:06

This one goes out to Boo-Boo. What a life to take. What a bond to break. We’ll all be missing you Boo-Boo, but the show must go on and this week the boys managed to pull themselves together just enough to discuss Abby’s misadventures in love, a new theory of the mysterious Cat People, and the true, official reading order for the BSC series. Also, Bee Theory may be wrong. Happy reading!

01:08:14

There’s a new girl in Riverbend this week named Mallory Pike, and she’s all new! We all know and love our Riverbend Gals: Smee, Jen, Sarah… but who is this enigmatic new Mallory character?! We may never know! Also this week: a bitter farewell to Mark Markson, what Amelia Earhart’s mysterious disappearance means for Mallory, and a hot new segment called the M-M-M-M-MILES MOMENT!

BSCC 128 - Mary Anne in the Middle
01:05:01

Mallory has left the safe confines of the BSC to become a baby-sitting Ronin and roam the Earth with no master and no mission but her wanderings. The factions have taken full control of Stoneybrook, as witches fight demons and terrible dinosaurs rage and roar in the ghost-riddled streets. To make matters worse, the boys are feuding, driven mad with fear as these books count down to their inevitable fiery end. Meanwhile, the girls are throwing a festive holiday party for the residents of Stoneybrook Manor! All that and more as we approach the heart-pounding conclusion of the great Sitters’ Cycle.

01:05:19

#swoon alert, Baby Nation! There’s a hunky new single dad in Stoneybrook this week, and of course his name is John! Though, you probably know his as J.B. Angel, the spirit of vengeance. There’s also more mean memes than you could have ever possibly wanted, but the boys packed them into the episode regardless!

01:04:57

We’re not trying to tell you how to live your lives, but you’re going to disappoint a lot of people if you refuse to read Infinite Jest, watch Videodrome, and familiarize yourself with all of the great works of Stone Cold Steve Austin, and instead spend your time doing whippets, watching SportsCenter, and throwing big blow-out parties when your parents are away like Claudia Kishi decided to do this week. This one’s for fans of Janine Kishi, aka “The Janenius,” people who think Sense and Sensibility was written in the ‘90s, and anyone who’s ever huffed whipped cream to see what might happen.

01:02:54

¡Esta semana los chicos vienen a ti en vivo desde la Ciudad de México! (De acuerdo, no VIVO en vivo, ya que este episodio fue grabado hace unas semanas, pero entiendes lo que quiero decir.) Hay mucho de qué hablar esta semana, incluyendo: el malvado hermano de Emma Frost, Robert Frost, una dinámica nuevo personaje llamado Cary Retlin, y alguna posible infracción de propiedad intelectual por parte de Stephen Chow (llámenos Stephen, si desea hablar sobre la división de honorarios legales).

BSCC 124 - Abby in Wonderland
01:05:18

This weird, surrealistic tableau of a book marks the beginning of Suzanne Weyn's Dada phase. The narrative, such as it is, revolves around Abby and Kristy’s visit to Abby's grandmother on Long Island, which the Cat People have occupied in a new, terrifying phase of their insurgency. Kristy and Mary Anne are up to no good, and the Scholastic lawyers are immersed in their most devious stunt yet. Ben Hobart is back in a big way, the Purple Orb has an army now, and Jack and Tanner have a very, very, very special message for their wives. Curiouser and curiouser!

01:05:35

This week, the boys go inside a haunted mansion. Just by chance they freed a ghost who made them Beetleboys. [Frankenbeans: “BEETLEBOYS!”] Big Bad Beetleboys. Big Bad Beetleboys. Hey look now they're super heros, armed with super powers… [Mums: ”Cool!”] ...taken from a comic strip and now they're Beetleboys. [Count Fangula: “BEETLEBOYS!”] Big Bad Beetleboys.

BSCC 122 - Stacey's Ex-Boyfriend
01:02:54

Kristy’s out of the way and busy with her Strawberry Festival and Stacey’s stuck between the two handsome boys in her life, so get ready to Hashtag “Swoon" (this is a new cool thing to say!) over the ever-so-dreamy Ethan, and Hashtag “Speak The Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear” (not a thing yet, but hopefully soon!) for Robert “Brewdoggy” Brewster, who is truly going through some stuff this week. If all of that makes you socially anxious, just remember your FORDOW acronym and you can’t go wrong! Unless you’re too far gone with Suzeynity, in which case the best you can probably do is sit back and either wait for the universe to be set upon the Golden Path or lament the ominous return of the Jaquio. Is it just me or is this podcast making less and less sense as we go on?

BSCC 121 - Kristy Thomas, Dog Trainer
01:03:23

This week, the boys are brimming with DINOSAUR ENERGY, which was introduced to the sitterverse by a new character named Deb Cooper, who has more in common with The Golden Bear’s depiction of the Joker in 1989’s The Batman than anyone has any right to. Also, Watson adopts a seeing-eye dong, Ben Hobart returns, Jack hurts his hand, and there’s a lot of fretting over acute angle-closure glaucoma, because where we’re going… we won’t need eyes.

BSCC 120 - Claudia and the Terrible Truth
01:04:57

Tune in for a hearty, rollicking discussion about Kristy and Mallory’s preparations for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Jackie Rodowsky’s latest shenanigans, and the impending dinosaur threat in Stoneybrook, and then stick around to hear how the boys deftly navigate around and steer almost completely clear of the nasty, fetid, vile, miserable little secret that undergirds it all and rots it from within! Also, a long awaited update in the Wandering Frog People game we’re all playing! And some light, intellectual analysis of the classic film “Summer Catch.”

BSCC 119 - Abby and the Best Kid Ever
00:59:48

A very good boy returns to Stoneybrook this week, and the boys could not be more excited to welcome them back. But don’t get out the streamers and cake and other party supplies yet, because before this episode is over, Ann and Nola are going to snatch our old friend away again and banish them from the sitterverse once more. Are you next? Maybe. Also, there was something moving around in Tanner’s office this week and it gets very spooky, but as far as I know, he survived the evening, so we should be okay there.

BSCC: Mystery – Kristy and the Missing Child
01:23:51

It’s the crossover episode everyone’s been waiting for – the boys welcome Kristin Russo from Buffering the Vampire Slayer to talk about the demon Logan Bruno, whether Stoneybrook is built on a hellmouth, and Tanner’s favorite Buffy character, Gilbert. Meanwhile, the baby-sitters have lost yet another charge, Alan Gray is completely out of control, and new facts emerge about Kristy’s dad in the most mysterious BSC mystery yet.

BSCC 118 - Jessi's Big Break
01:01:36

Tanner is back in New York, but he’s not the only one. Jessi Ramsay has somehow escaped Ann’s grasp and fled to New York City, where she’s been offered entrance into a prestigious ballet academy. But Jessi and Tanner aren’t the only ones in New York City because, who’s that? Award-winning actor Liam Neeson?! Wow. What a get.

BSCC 117 - The Secret Life of Mary Anne Spier
01:06:34

Who could have imagined, when we started this little podcast about the hit 1990 LucasArts PC game “Loom,” that we’d still have stuff to talk about 117 episodes deep. But here we are! This week, we’ve got some practical business tips for dragons, plenty of material on the great Elf war, and, weirdly, a surprisingly robust discussion of a novel about a baby-sitter named Mary Anne Spier. Trust us, there’s a connection there. We think!

BSCC 116 - Claudia Makes Up Her Mind
01:06:55

“‘Two boys… two grades… how will Claudia ever decide?’ –Hodges Soileau” –Jack Shepherd

Claudia’s got a choice to make this week, and it’s not just between two boys, but also two grades! This is episode two of two recorded in Jack’s Brooklyn Airbnb, and after recording last week’s episode, drinking several beers, and eating their fill of vegan Chinese food, things get a little bit silly.

BSCC 115 - Kristy and the Sister War
01:03:23

The boys are face to face this week to bring their impressive and nuanced understanding of military tactics and history to the circumstances of the great “Sisty War”™ between Shannon Kilbourne and her sisters. And since this is an Ellen Miles book, the mystical revelations contained in its pages go far beyond the Good Clean Baby-Sitting Fun in the A-plot, or the cool pronouncements of Pete Black in the B-plot. In fact, Ellen has seen fit to reveal something long coveted by students of the Sitters’ Cycle: The very location of the portal to Stoneybrook itself. And it’s not where you’d expect it to be ...

BSCC 114 - Stacey's Secret Friend
01:00:18

There’s a new girl in town, and despite her numerous similarities to Tanner, she may be one of the most dynamic and engaging characters to ever move to Stoneybrook. Is she tall? Yes. Does she wear glasses? You bet. Does she exclusively wear pink jumpsuits? Yep! Can she move things with her mind? Maybe. Does she go on a destructive rampage after a bucket of pig’s blood is dumped on her at prom, ending with a conflagration of SMS and everyone inside of it? Guess you’ll have to listen to find out.

BSCC 113 - Abby the Bad Sport
01:06:41

One day in 1999, a man named Bill Bannerman and the five members of a soon-to-be-VERY-famous pop punk outfit sat in a basement room with a dogeared copy of a little book called "Abby the Bad Sport." What they discovered in that tome would be the stuff of legend. Listen in as your favorite podcast boys recreate that heady conversation, delving into Abby’s rotten attitude, Shannon Kilbourne’s confusing extracurricular activities, Jackie Rodowsky’s travels through the universe, and Claudia Kishi’s most daring outfit yet. And to make matters even more fascinating this week, Tanner loses a battle with peanut butter, and Jack learns how to do a knock-knock joke, so there’s plenty of good stuff to balance out Abby’s shoddy behavior.

BSCC 112 - Mary Anne to the Rescue
01:02:43

Does Cringer shrink down when he’s not Battle Cat? Will Mary Anne Spier ever overcome her many, many fears? Are the Star Wars prequel films canon? Will Mark Markson and Dave Daveson ever return from the Cauliflower Universe? Will we ever find out what Alan Gray keeps in that weird room of his? Will Jack and Tanner ever get around to discussing the book this week? These questions and many others will not be answered this week. Sorry.

BSCC 111 - Don't Give Up, Mallory
01:06:34

You know what? Mallory really stuck it to the Man this week, and we’re damn proud of her. But while dear, sweet, brave Mal was busy standing up to the (admittedly handsome) Trevor Sandbourne and singlehandedly dismantling the entrenched power structures at SMS, all was not well in the rest of Stoneybrook: Dangerous new knowledge has come to light in the mysterious academic discipline known as Bread Theory; terrifying portents are, well, portended, by The Bird and The Wheelmaker; and the boys had the distinct displeasure of debuting the hottest track to ever light up the charts in the space between worlds – a mind-flaying dirge known to those who love it as “49 Deaths.” And perhaps even more surprising than all of that, Tanner finally learns what a segue is. Or does he? ...

BSCC 110 - Mind Your Own Business, Kristy!
01:04:04

Charlie Thomas has a new girlfriend named Angela, Pamela, Sandra, or Rita, and despite the fact that she’s a Crime Girl, they are only getting sweeter (the trumpet!). Kristy doesn’t like her because she’s a Baseball Idiot (and she’s not the only one in this week’s book). Car crimes are perpetrated against the State of Connecticut, and there’s a hit new Blade (the vampire/vampire hunter) musical coming to Broadway. This one’s for you, Harry Nilsson, wherever you are now. We can’t live… if livin’ is without you.

BSCC 109 - Claudia Kishi, Queen of the Seventh Grade
01:09:29

Parental advisory: There is a lot of kissing talk and smooching talk right up front and there’s honestly no way to avoid it this week because this was a book about kissing and smooching. Claudia kisses and then smooches an annoying but handsome and swoopy-haired boy named Mark Jaffe. The boys kiss the sweet feet of sweet Pete Lerangis (metaphorically speaking). And Claudia’s new friend Josh is kissed by greatness in a star turn as this week’s Baller of the Week. And even if you don’t like kissing or smooching all that much, stick around, because you might just learn what an answering machine is.

BSCC 108 - Stacey the Math Whiz
01:04:47

Okay, so Jack and Tanner spent a ton of their hard-earned ad revenue on new mics and recorders but then that dunce Jack hit the wrong button and essentially recorded all of this episode and the next one on his laptop mic so it sounds awful BUT there’s still a really solid episode there so try to bear with us.

Stacey is a nerd now, the Deep Voice Boys are back with an exciting new role, Jack spends a LONG time perfecting a new character who LOVES smoking drugs and doing 69-ing with people and the Counting Crows get a lot of very special shout outs this week.

01:09:21

This is an urgent message for the Pulitzer Committee: The audio from our original version of Abby’s Twin – which you so kindly singled out as being worthy of your highest honor – has been irreparably lost. But thanks to our precision, our professionalism, and our consummate skill, we have perfectly recreated every note, every beat, every moment of that epoch-defining, award-worthy episode of audio magic and are now humbly presenting that recreation for your consideration. You will not find a word out of place. Kristy’s errors of judgement, Abby’s edgy comedy, Alan Gray’s moment in the sun: It’s all there, along with an exhaustingly comprehensive discussion of the Netflix original movie “Bright,” starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton – just like Ann M. Martin intended when she wrote this novel. Thank you. We love you and we kiss you all.

01:05:01

This week, Jack and Tanner talk about ████ and ████, but then Jack decides to █████ his ████ instead, so Tanner needs to █████ all over the █████. But it's only ███ miles to ████, which ██████ took ██ days to do, but ████ managed to finish in █████. There's also a new ████ in Stoneybrook, and ████ and ████ Tanner and Jack get stuck in segment █████.

01:06:25

In a distant future, in an alternate universe, The Futuresmiths have made a decision that will affect our world, Earth-One, and the mysterious otherworld of the Baby-Sitters Club: They will send Cir-El (Supergirl) back to the present day to set in motion events that will change the multiverse forever. And it is here, in this fateful moment, that we shall find our hosts, immersing themselves in the wisdom of the great Sitters’ Cycle – from the latest news about gentle Mary Anne Spier to the dangerous events surrounding the captivating Alan Grey. From the sleepy town of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, to the storm-swept waters of the Indian ocean. It is here, in this fateful moment, that our story will be told.

Welcome to episode #3 of the new Baby-Sitter’s Club Club podcast, now in the darkest timeline where Claudia is back in the 7th grade, Kristy is only capable of generating bad ideas, Stacey is single, and Jackie Rodowsky is but a boy. The Sitterverse is now a dark and scary place and all the girls and residents are only in it for themselves. Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

BSCC 103 - Kristy's Worst Idea
01:02:28

Your two favorite Partywarts™ are standing by this week with an arsenal of jokes, classic memes, and hilarious burns for your amusement. Which is unfortunate, because this was the week that the Baby-Sitters Club has decided to disband, and the girls are barely even on speaking terms, an occasion that calls for mourning, sober analysis, and bitter, inconsolable tears. Say what you want about the BSCC, but you certainly get the full range of emotions here. Also, Jackie’s back! In time!

BSCC 102 - Stacey’s Broken Heart
01:06:08

This week, the boys hearts are broken right alongside Stacey’s because Robert “Hangdoggy” Brewster has betrayed us all. But don’t worry, because they have the warm, open, waiting arms of both the intriguing and enigmatic Ethan AND the familiar, long-haired Pete Black waiting for all of them to “trampoline” into. Also, the boys are feeling a little Suzane in the membWeyn this week, and because of that, it’s an EXTREMELY segment light week, so STRAP IN FOR SOME ANTIQUITY DISCUSSION.

BSCC 100 - Claudia and the World's Cutest Baby
01:08:28

It’s episode #100! Well, actually it’s probably more like episode #103 or #104? And also, the boys are discussing book #97, but let’s all go ahead and count this as an auspicious occasion, and if you don’t want to, you can kiss dirt. Tanner sings a lot (no surprises there) and Jack talks about Greek word roots a lot (no surprises there either) and both boys talk a lot about Blade Runner (which is maybe a little surprising). You know what they DON’T talk about a lot? You guess it: the book. Important: INVOKE THE ORB AND SURROUND YOURSELF WITH DOLLS!

BSCC 099 - Abby's Lucky Thirteen
01:05:46

There’s no easy way of saying this, but we’re legally obligated to warn you: The boys may have accidentally unleashed a vengeful being of pure evil into our community, which you can call a Videogeist – unless you’re an influencer, in which case you might prefer to use some more up-to-date lingo like “Trans-Media Entity.” Anyway, the point is that we’re in a world of trouble this week that is at least as bad as the trouble that local Crime Girl Abby Stevenson gets into when she cheats on a math test with the help of a very naughty boy from Stoneybrook Middle School. A fun book this week, with lots of great moments featuring our newest Baby-Sitter that you will enjoy a whole lot more if you take some basic precautions like lighting a lot of candles, getting all the TVs out of your house, and praying that we’ve done the bare minimum required to ward off the ancient evil that is stalking us all through this podcast. Happy reading!

01:04:37

Hope you enjoy the sound of two men doing that “Huh?!” sound from Home Improvement, because Jack and Tanner do it A LOT this week. There are also a lot of equations and algorithms in this book, so I hope you also enjoy the sound of two men trying to formulate and then solve math problems. Oh, and Baby Nation, we’re not here to kink shame you, but if you are into “arm stuff” we just ask that you do it safely and responsibly.

BSCC 097 - Stacey McGill, Super Sitter
01:02:29

Having seen the error of her ways after falling in with Crime Girls, Stacey McGill is riding the baby-sitting dragon again, but she’s not out of danger yet! That’s right, the Herald has appeared, the clairvoyant has spoken her baleful prophecy, and it won’t be too long now before those adorable little Otter Bishops start preaching about the end of days. Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom this week, because the boys are paid a visit by their dear friend Handel, Logan finally decided to put a ring on it, and the BSC came through in a big way with some good, clean baby-sitting fun.

01:12:50

A life is cut tragically short this week and all of Stoneybrook comes together for a funeral for their friend Amelia. She was just thirteen years old when the ultimate killing machine, Doomsday, escaped its underground prison and fought her on the streets of Metropolis, leading to her tragic and untimely death and ultimately to the rise of four new heroes: Cyborg Amelia, Amelia of Steel, Ameliaboy, and the mysterious Last Amelia of Krypton. But can these new heroes stand up to villains such as The Dark Lady and live up to the legacy of Amelia, whose memory garden still serves as a reminder for the citizens of the world of her greatness?

BSCC 095 - Mallory's Christmas Wish
01:03:13

Hello and welcome to “Kissing Advice” with Jack and Tanner! In this very special and extremely timely Christmas-themed episode, the boys will take you through their top tips for tying tongues, whether you’re a seasoned kisser, a first-timer, or just someone who has a lot of mistletoe hanging in your house and needs to brush up on their smooching game. But mistletoe-induced snogging isn’t the only thing these Christmas boys have on their minds, because Mallory Pike’s devastatingly handsome father has found himself on Santa’s naughty list, Baby-Sitters Club Art Director Hodges Soileau has a profoundly troubling Christmas message for us, and Princeton’s own Ann M. Martin has given us all a gift we’ll never forget – a Christmas book, fully three weeks after December 25. Thanks, Ann!

01:03:52

Reasons we did the podcast this week:

  • To remind you that children are the future.
  • To wake you the fuck up, America.
  • To ask that you not narc on someone’s orgy.
  • To insist that you shouldn’t club someone to death for narcing on your orgy.
  • To discourage you from dedicating your orgies to the goddess Artemis.
  • To plug the mid-90s rock band Green Jelly.
  • To encourage you to leave a plate out for Ben Brewer next Thanksgiving.
  • To guide you through the dispelling ritual to prevent Drusilla Destiny from rising up to destroy you in seven episodes.
  • To tell the truth.
  • And hind-most, to keep you safe. This show is about safety.

BSCC 093 - Welcome to the BSC, Abby
01:04:33

Who was John Stevenson and what did he know? These are some of the tough questions that this fascinating novel asks us, but it also asks us to look deep inside ourselves and take an unerring look at what we might find there. Which is exactly what our brave boys do this week, as they grapple with difficult truths like whether new baby-sitter Abby Stevenson is the best baby-sitter now that Dawn’s gone; whether it’s ever appropriate to question Kristy Thomas’s authority; and what, precisely, this all has to do with Hellraiser. The bravest of the two boys also takes this opportunity to admit that he was wrong and to accept the consequences of his terrible mistake. Not to make excuses, not to ask for forgiveness – but to own what he has done and to pay for it. With his life. Also, there’s some good stuff about bees, Druscilla Destiny, and Abby’s burgeoning stand-up career, so strap in for a wild ride.

BSCC Special Christmas
00:48:54

If you’re caught up with BSCC episodes, it’s a very special Christmas episode, delivered to you hot and fresh on Christmas day! If you’re not caught up, and you’re listening to this at any other time, sorry about the weird Christmas episode randomly thrown into the middle of your feed! We hope it gets you into the Christmas spirit, even if it’s, like, May or whatever. We’re doing something new this week and watching an episode of a TV program instead of reading a book. But not just any TV program, HBO’s The Baby-Sitters Club TV program! And not just any episode of said TV program, but the "The Baby-Sitters Club's Special Christmas”! Say hello to your friends! Merry Christmas! Whatever!

BSCC 092 - Kristy and the Dirty Diapers
01:10:38

It’s a time of rebirth in Stoneybrook, Connecticut. Out with the old, in the with the new. Dawn is dead and gone, and in her place, a new sitter must rise. And with a new sitter comes a new baby to be sat, this time in the frightening form of a video/VHS/well/water demon named Drusilla Destiny who Jack and Tanner are definitely going to keep an eye on. Sweet Pete also introduces an incredible new character called Abby Stevenson and she’s an instant favorite, but she comes with a LOT of baggage, and even though she claims to be from Long Island, her origin remains frighteningly unclear for the time being.

BSCC 091 - Farewell, Dawn
01:02:13

Get your tissues ready and put your crying hats on, Baby Nation, because this one’s a sad one! Set during the First World War, "Farewell, Dawn" follows the fortunes of the American paramedic Frederic Henry and an English nurse named Catherine Barkley. Against all odds, their love blossoms as the bombs and shrapnel explode around them, but they are ultimately doomed, not by the destruction and war where their love was born, but the quiet, aching stillness of solitude where it will eventually die. Actually, that MAY be the plot of Farewell to Arms, but it is very difficult to tell the difference between these two heartbreaking classics of American literature. Suffice it to say that Dawn is gone, and we’re just going to have to pick up the pieces and move on without her. At least Claudia was wearing something fun this week!

BSCC 090 - Stacey and the Bad Girls
01:15:44

Extra long episode this week, Baby Nation! Tanner is back from a week in Germany, and for some reason, the boys thought it’d be a good decision to do a late night record while Tanner was still reeling from the effects of jet lag, so Jack has a really hard time keeping this one on the rails. There’s A LOT of singing. Too much singing. Sorry for all the singing. Stacey (with a soft ‘c’) or Stacey (with a hard ‘c’) (we’re not sure how it’s pronounced) has a run in with some bad girls who invite her into the seedy underworld of dingleberriness, and once it starts, the red, red wine never stops flowing. Also, we’re calling Robert the Brewdoggy now, and Stacey Sweet Toots McGill.

BSCC 089 - Mary Anne and Camp BSC
01:07:03

What seems at first to be a very straightforward “paint-by-numbers” installment in the sitterverse (yawn: the sitters hold a day camp for some of their charges) turns out to be an intricate, surprising, and genuinely frightening origin story for Mary Anne Spier herself. As the boys pick apart the strands in this delicate tapestry woven by Ann M. Martin and the great Nola Thacker, they begin to wonder whether they’ve uncovered something that none of us were meant to know. Because this one goes all the way down, Baby Nation. All the way. Down. Some completely unwarranted and baseless slander of the fine city of Cleveland in this episode, which is still nowhere near as offensive as how many total minutes it takes Jack to get through one two-clause sentence about the B-plot of this book. Put your tinfoil hats on for this one, Baby Nation, because you’re gonna need ‘em!

BSCC 088 - Claudia Kishi, Live From WSTO!
01:00:18

To really get this week’s episode, you’re going to need to remember a lot of the plot details from Inception, and you’re going to need to know A LOT about the short lived meme that was Dawn Siff’s Vine video resume. Oh, you’ll also probably want to have heard at least a few episodes of This American Life. So, a lot of prerequisites for this one, but it’s really worth it. Claudia gets a radio show on WSTO, Tanner delivers some very interesting factoids about terrestrial broadcast standards, Jack goes about six segments deep at one point, and we get a very special visit from a character we haven’t seen in quite some time who is taking some time off from blipping through spacetime.

BSCC 087 - Dawn and the School Spirit War
01:05:29

There’s a ding dang civil war this week, Baby Nation (we’re saying “ding dang” now, apparently), and it looks like the beautiful friendships that we’ve been following for 83 books so far are starting to fall apart at the seams. We always knew that something was going to be the catalyst for the BSC apocalypse we witnessed in this book but never in a million years could either of us have predicted that it was going to be Mary Anne’s pajamas. And to make matters worse, the civil war between the baby-sitters isn’t the only war brewing – there’s the terrifying battle of the ghosts and spirits referenced in the title, the internal crisis of faith that Dawn is undergoing, and a bit of a "war of words” (if you’ll indulge me) between our hosts about whether or not Ann is explicitly referencing the Marvel Universe in this text (she is). Stick around for some seriously glorious antics from Alan Gray and the debut of a brand new song from Superbrat.

BSCC 086 - Stacey vs. the BSC
01:01:07

Ding Dong, Baby Nation! The witch is dead! Which old witch? Stacey McGill, that’s who! This week Stacey gets into a big fight with all the other members of the Baby-sitter’s Club and they finally do the right thing and cut her loose. And, listen, Tanner isn’t here to say that he told you so, BUT HE TOLD YOU SO! Other talking points include whether or not pineapple is an appropriate topping for pizza (it’s not), a new light-bringer pulling the strings in Stoneybrook, and something else that seemed notable… I can’t quite remember what it was now… I was so distracted throughout the episode by the cooing and crying of a newborn baby that I’m having trouble recalling what the last big piece of news was. Oh well! Guess you’ll have to listen and find out for yourself.

BSCC 085 - Jessi and the Troublemaker
01:05:11

Looks like we’ve got a Troublemaker gumming up the works this week, Baby Nation! But who, or what, is it? Surely it isn’t sweet, innocent leukemia survivor Danielle Roberts? Might it somehow be that bad, negligent babysitter Stacey McGill? She has been acting VERY strangely of late. Or, and just hear us out here … is there ANY chance that it could be ‘90s Canadian rap and reggae artist Darrin Kenneth O’Brien (aka “Snow”)? Probably not, frankly, but your boys are willing to consider all the options. Including the troubling possibility that we’re dealing with something even more sinister. That the nefarious troublemaking duo Ann M. Martin and Nola Thacker are forcing us to confront … The Nameless Shadow That Devours Us All. Whatever it is, there’s only one thing we truly can be sure of this week: This is all Jessi Ramsey’s fault. And we have the receipts to prove it.

00:59:42

This week, after father of three Jack Butler loses his job at the Ford Motor Company, he is forced to become a stay-at-home dad when his wife, Caroline, takes a job as a high-powered executive at a prestigious ad agency in Detroit. No wait, that’s the plot of 1983’s Mr. Mom. Shit. Uh, well… pretty much the same thing happens in this book, except it’s Watson Brewer, and he doesn’t lose his job, but he does have a heart attack. (He's fine.)

BSCC 083 - Super Special 012 - Here Come the Bridesmaids
01:02:07

Here come the bridesmaids, and there goes our sense of basically everything that is right and decent, because Tanner decided we needed to read a Super Special, OUT OF ORDER, this week to make sense of whatever the hell is going on in our next BSC book, Kristy and Mr. Mom. So here we are at this "coast 2 coast wedding orgy," with plenty of brides but not quite enough bridesmaids, as Mary Anne is about to discover to her eternal dismay. All that being said, Ann is kind of burying the lede here, because something else is coming in this book, something that is vastly more frightening and dangerous than even the most diabolical of bridesmaids. Though, to be fair, if she’d called this one “Here Comes the Terror Clown,” it might have hurt the sales a bit. Enjoy!

BSCC 082 - Mallory Pike, #1 Fan
00:58:57

This week’s book is a clear cry for help from the Primarch of Princeton herself, and Ann – if you’re reading this – we hear you! And if you’re open to notes, we want to let you know that writing a step-by-step guide on how to stalk children's books authors is maybe not the best approach for dealing with your isolation and loneliness. But we’re just humble podcasters. What do we know?

BSCC 081 - Mary Anne Breaks the Rules
01:02:17

Babies and Gentlemen of the jury – over the course of this episode, we are going to present you with nothing but the facts of the case. You’re going to hear about Logan’s deceitful charm, about Alan Gray’s clever ruse, about the witches who walk among us in plain sight, and about William Blake’s critical analysis of Paradise Lost. And when all is said and done, when you have heard all that there is to hear, when the truth has been brought into the light, you are going to have no choice but to mete out justice according to the sacred laws of our great Nation of Babies. You are going to have no choice but to ACQUIT MARY ANNE SPIER OF ALL CHARGES. Because Mary Anne has broken no rules, Baby Nation! Unless there is a rule against loving too much.

BSCC 080 - Claudia and Crazy Peaches
00:57:27

This week, the boys navigate some choppy waters together because Claudia’s crazy aunt Peaches comes to town for an extended visit, and things get a little “very special episode” for a hot second. Tanner manages to give birth to something of his own, just beating out the Shepherd family’s little bundle of joy, and learns a lot of really terrifying jump rope rhymes that he’s excited to teach Lil’ Jack someday.

BSCC 079 - Dawn and Whitney, Friends Forever
01:03:04

It’s another episode of your favorite show, The We Heart Kids Club Club, a podcast in which your hosts, Half Pipe and Weed Lord (oof, sorry, I think we’re stuck with this now) talk about the classic series of novels about Maggie Blume, Jill Something or other, and new babysitter, Dawn Read Schafer. This week, the boys make some sweet, sweet brain babies together, and before they go any further, they’d like to formally apologize both for the metaphor and for the horrifying results of that particular experiment. But the show must go on, and there's lots to talk about this week, including Dawn’s dad’s exciting love life, the battle between the Barretts and the DeWitts across the country in Stoneybrook, Connecticut, and the fact that Baby-Sitters Club Art Director Hodges Soileau may just have outdone himself this time …

BSCC 078 - Stacey's Lie
01:02:36

This week the boys become intimately familiar with the work of Suzanne Weyn, or should I say, Suz-ANN! Have any of you ever seen Ann and Suzanne in the same room at the same time? Didn’t think so. Nice try, Ann, but we’re on to you. Stacey is back in the dog house, Claudia is back to being eternal sad, and the Pikes continue to deliver the best burns in the business.

BSCC 077 - Jessi and the Horrible Prank
01:07:42

Finally, the episode everyone has been waiting for – a 1-hour extravaganza devoted exclusively to BSC fan favorite character Michael P. Trout (the computer science teacher that Jessi has in this one book and who never appears in the series again). We get into all things Trout this week, answer all your burning Trout questions, and speculate, briefly, about whether Trout died for our sins so that we may all be saved. For folks who aren’t Trout superfans, never fear, because Tanner manages to shoehorn the Stormlight Archive into this, and Jack, not to be outdone, gets a whole minute on T.S. Eliot before anyone can stop him. And of course, there’s dolls, dinosaurs, and a truly sick burn on Claudia.

BSCC 076 - Kristy and the Copycat
00:57:41

Happy belated birthday, Ann! Jack and Tanner got you a present! It’s this podcast. Sorry. This week, the boys find common ground with Warhammer 40k/classical antiquity, and a new love for potential sentient canine and BSC ghostwriter, Nola Thacker. And Ann's isn’t the only birth worth celebrating this week, because Nola also brings about the existence of FIRE this week by introducing a purging flame to the Sitterverse. Also, Jack’s cigarette smoking is becoming a problem. Jack, if you’re reading this, please get help.

BSCC 075 - Mary Anne and Miss Priss
01:00:24

Welcome to the "Jahnna N. Malcolm Hate Podcast," a podcast in which two small-minded men viciously, slanderously, and unfairly malign the beloved children’s literature of the entity known as Jahnna N. Malcolm, whose only crime is their deep love for one another and for making the world a better place by entertaining children and enriching their lives. In slightly better news, Mallory’s back in action, but the Baby-Sitters are still down one, and The Dolls are gaining power as they tighten the noose on the sleepy little town of Stoneybrook. And Baby Nation: If you learn one thing from this podcast, learn this: Don’t. Trust. Dolls.

Welcome to another installment of the We ♥ Kids Club Club, a podcast in which your two hosts, Weed Lord and Half-pipe, discuss the works of Peter Lerangis and Ann M. Martin: The We ♥ Kids Club books. This week, there's a new character in Palo City, a naughty dingleberry named Dawn Schafer who creates trouble everywhere she goes with her militant environmentalism, hatred for love, and willingness to steal and lie her way back home. Palo City, California hasn't had a character this explosive since the Fire Elementals came to town.

BSCC: Little Sister - Karen's School Picture
00:44:22

Y’all, the boys were pretty sauced for this episode. But that’s OK because it’s a Little Sister, Little Episode, where things are fast, loose, fun, and frisky. And despite all of that speed and friskiness, Jack and Tanner pull off some hard-hitting investigative journalism about the cold case of the missing Delaney family, a thoughtful and informed discussion about the state of modern bone medicine, and a poignant analysis of Karen Brewer's complex and morally fraught relationship with "Icky" Ricky "The Tower" Torres. Also, Jack says the phrase “mediate our experience” about 50 times, so brace yourselves.

01:02:51

If there is such a thing in the world as a Perfect Boy, what would he be like? Would he be like Rand al Thor, from Robert Jordan’s tedious and bloated Wheel of Time saga? Would he be like Robyn or Rand Miller, the brothers behind the 1993 graphic adventure puzzle video game Myst? Or would he be more like Gary Gygax himself, the troubled but brilliant creator of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing experience? Claudia’s too busy assembling what may be her most ambitious outfit ever to do real justice to these questions about the Perfect Boy, so Jack and Tanner do their very best to muddle through on her behalf. Major, MAJOR spoilers for the movie Seven, starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and the head of Gwyneth Paltrow.

This week, two inept hosts who WERE NOT born during a storm NOR during a Super Bowl game try their very best to describe and discuss a Baby-Sitters Club book written by two beautiful storm-touched souls. And there’s no sign more clear that Jack and Tanner are starting to lose their credibility than the fact that they’re “coming around” on Stacey. Can you believe that?! Stacey meets a new boy called Robert, and together, they drain the swamp and dismantle the corrupt establishment that is SMS’s sports program. They’re real nine-one-ones. (nine-elevens?)

Welcome to “Pike Check,” our hit new BSCC-spinoff podcast about how ridiculously handsome Mallory’s dad John Pike is. We think this one has a lot of legs, just like John. This episode also contains the definitive diss track that the BSC ghostwriter known as “The Entity Known as Jahnna N. Malcolm” has had coming for about 30 years now, as well as a shocking new revelation about the mysterious events of June 10 and their meaning in Ann’s life. Also, Mallory is not well and the BSC is down to a DANGEROUS 5 members. We get into it. Possible spoilers for The Fly.

This week, Tanner is joined in his B____n, N__ Y__k apartment by a very special guest to discuss book #68 in the Baby-Sitter’s Club cycle: Jessi and the Bad Baby-sitter. Has Dawn finally been replaced? Can Wendy Loesser stand up to the immense scrutiny of the BSC? No and no! But we do get some G.C.B.S.F. this week, which is all we can hope for, really. Also in this episode: Bee theory, Green Lanterns (go figure), OWOWing, a special text message appearance from Jack’s friend, Jan, and an even more special appearance from everyone’s favorite low-voiced business men, Dave Daveson and Mark Markson.

BSCC 069 - Dawn's Big Move
01:05:20

This episode is a time for somber reflection, as the boys gently, diplomatically, and eloquently allow Ann to hear (in the most thoughtful and sober way possible) exactly why what she did to Dawn WILL NEVER BE OK, ANN. NEVER. Also this week, Hodges has gone completely off the deep end, and Jack and Tanner follow him merrily over the edge with a whole slew of powerful and dynamic new segments. There’s also a new player in town, who has Goliath Hardbody shaking in his manly boots.

01:02:42

It’s a real sewing circle jerk this week, Baby Nation (to use a technical term), and if you happen to be into that sort of thing AND you’re a fan of the 1990 fantasy graphic adventure game “Loom,” this one's really going to be right in your sweet spot. But there’s still plenty to love even for folks who are on the fence about weaving, sewing and weaving/sewing-based videogames because the boys have a whole lot to say about Nicky Pike’s dalliance with the dark side, Dawn’s “looming" departure from the BSC, and the increasingly delightful antics of new fan favorite, Elvira the Goat. Also, we can’t say more about this right now but: WARNING: DO NOT listen to this episode if you have a room with corners.

01:00:49
Happy Trails, Baby Nation! Jack and Tanner are taking a tour of Boston’s “The Freedom Trail” this week, thanks to the entity known as Jahna N. Malcolm, who co-wrote this novel with Ann. M. Martin and (presumably) The Boston Tourism Board. Unfortunately, Dawn and Mary Anne are at each other’s throats again this week, so the boys distract themselves from that unpleasantness by spending a laudable amount of time Googling to see if the Bible ever mentions weed.

It’s time for another BSC: Mystery, which means it’s time for another interview, except it’s not an interview, because interviewers don’t make their guests read children’s books. Reading “Beware Dawn” with the boys this week are Katie Heaney and Arianna Rebolini, authors of the incredible new book, “Public Relations,” and apparently a very steaming piece of erotic fiction featuring an eel man. Topics of discussion include G.I. Joe used in sex play, celestial beings, bonza sheilas, King Hiss, and much, much more. (Including a little bit of Baby-Sitters Club discussion.)

Strap on your best learnin’ hat and get ready for a good, old-fashioned education! This week, Claudia is learning from Stacey about where apostrophes go; Tanner’s learning from Jack about something very dry and almost certainly made up out of whole cloth called “The Lexical Order,” and Jack’s learning from Tanner all about the hit 2001 supernatural horror film “13 Ghosts,” starring the great Matthew Lillard. We also learn what happened to Jackie Rodowsky in his latest dance through the infinite, and the boys learn together just what happens when they muster up all their courage and say something to their beloved wives that they should have said a long, long, long time ago. “Battleships,” by Thomas Wolff Music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1OTLh2RGiA “Run,” by Ross Budgen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujsCRw-eA0o “Rise,” by Ampix https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUXjQIUv9KE “You Gotta Have Theremin and Ukulele,” by Squidlord https://soundcloud.com/squidlord/you-gotta-have-theremin-and-ukulele “Morning Sun,” by Nicolai Heidlas Music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDQYljt3mtc “Land of Honor,” by Maxx McGee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFhmfHMcnAs “Apocalypse,” by Ross Budgen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v29KVjUXiS8 Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

A "very special” episode this week, Baby Nation, since Ann – in her infinite wisdom and unaccountable cruelty – decided to throw Jack and Tanner another curveball with a powerful novel about the triple threat of poverty, systemic racism, and teenage eating disorders. But with an exquisite grace worthy of Jessi herself, the boys manage to tiptoe shockingly quickly in the opposite direction of these delicate issues and towards the vastly safer ground of Marvel’s The X-Men, which Ann also foolishly included in this text. And it goes without saying that this whole discussion is positively teeming with horrifying doll creatures, so there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy.    "Cinematic Piano," by AShamaluevMusic "Whistle and Clap," by MorningLightMusic “Chloe’s Lullaby,” by Robert Austin “Disturbing Ballet,” by Creepo TV “Skyline,” by Sam OT   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 062 - Mary Anne's Makeover
00:59:05
Mary Anne is finally getting that makeover we’ve been hearing about for so long! We also have reason to believe that Mr. Spier and Logan have a lot more in common than we thought, and that Mr. Spier and the X-Men’s Wolverine have a lot more in common than we thought. He’s the best there is at what he does, and what he does is weird sex play with food. Also, Jack is moving to Texas so nothing else really matters.   Music Credits: “Sepia” by Podington Bear “Red in Black” by Kosta T “Vessel” by Ship Wrek, Zookeepers & Trauzers "A Storm At Eilean Mor" by Jon Luc Hefferman   As always, special thanks to Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC: Mystery – Stacey and the Missing Ring
01:06:57
It's the first ever Baby-Sitters Club Mystery! And things get very mysterious, very quickly. Stacey McGill has stolen a powerful ring that turns the babysitters against each other. Meanwhile, the boys are attacked by a terrible spectral presence in the room, Tanner spills an entire beer onto his crotch, and it seems almost certain that a fissure has been opened up between our world and the strange parallel universe in which the Baby-Sitters Club Mysteries take place. Jack and Tanner also chat with Kelsey and Holland from Whatever It Takes: A Degrassi Podcast to get their insights on the thousand mystifying mysteries contained within Stacey and the Missing Ring.  Music credits:  “Midnight Story,” by Platinum EDM   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 061 - Mallory Hates Boys (and Gym)
01:01:12
It's "pandemonium" in Stoneybrook this week! Which means, troublingly, that ALL the demons are back. And, perhaps worse, all the boys are being strange and difficult, which is stressing Mallory out to no end. A guest appearance from some of the business boys over at Goliath Industries does very little to ease the tension, and neither does the extended discussion of alleged boy Logan Bruno's complicated relationship with American sports. Not a good showing for ANY of the boys this week, so it looks like Mallory may well be onto something here.    Music credits:   “Where Did She Go,” by OurMusicBox "Touch The Sky,” by 98.20.11 X Bienkovsky   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 059 - Dawn Saves the Planet
00:59:59
Your two heavily jet-lagged boys are back in the USA and they're ready to talk about our precious Dawn, Claudia's latest outfit, and saving the planet! Somehow that goes off the rails pretty fast and what we've ended up with here is a surprisingly deep dive into the life and work of the music producer Steve Albini? Sorry about that! Stick around for an appearance by Stoneybrook News's Pulitzer-prize winning correspondent Chuck Whittaker, some profound analysis of the complicated "earring-hierarchy" in the BSC, and, yes, just a little taste of Bread Theory.  Music credits: “Time Police,” by ErikMMusic “Breaking Point,” by PlatinumEDM “Overture,” by Lionheart   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and a special thank you to Baby Bee Matt, aka WolfKiller for this week’s Heavy Metal outro.

BSCC 058 - Keep Out, Claudia!
00:56:14
There’s some new babies in Stoneybrook this week, and they only thing they love more than Kid Kits is racial purity! That’s right, they’re racist! Like, so awful and racist that it’s almost absurd. Not exactly easy to riff on, but they may be Doll People as well, so at least Ann gave us something to work with. Also, Jackie Rodowsky is starting a band! (When he’s not busy hurtling away from Earth at 99.9% the speed of light on a doomed mission into the cosmos.)   Music Credits:   "Prelude No. 23 in F major” by Steven O’Brien "Prelude No. 23 performed on an out of tune piano” by Steven O’Brien "When Memories Break” by BadWabbitz "Playground Lullaby” by Robert Austin “You Gotta Have Theremin and Ukulele” by SquidLord "Space Oddity (Tribute)” by Steven Ondas “Space Oddity (Cover Version) feat.

BSCC 057 - Jessi's Gold Medal
01:02:21
Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall when a couple of flesh-jobs hooked on Synchro and lurking around the meatspace in the dark alleyways of Roppongi, Tokyo, burble their nonsense-talk to one another? Well, you're in luck today, and wouldn't you know it, they're talking about Baby-Sitters Club #55, "Jessi's Gold Medal"! Mostly. They also have a worrying amount to say about Boat Girls, "The Watcher," and a strange little timewalker called Jackie Rodowsky. But that's just the Synchro talking. Anyway, sorry, we were super jet-lagged for this one and it got pretty weird!  Music credits: “Dreamland,” by Whitesand “The Last Frontier,” by Luke West “Feel the Knife,” by Lionel Schmitt “Nightwalker,” by Sentient Pulse “Ultima (Bassketball),” by Binz &Rajangator “Land of Honor,” by Maxx McGee   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 056 - Mallory and the Dream Horse
01:02:29
This week, Mallory, Jack, and Tanner all dream of horses, and make the mistake of dreaming too small...   "There’s something that we K-PAXians have been around long enough to have discovered. The universe will expand, then it will collapse back on itself, then will expand again. It will repeat this process forever. What you don't you know is that when the universe expands again, everything will be as it is now. Whatever mistakes you make this time around, you will live through on your next pass. Every mistake you make, you will live through again, & again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have." –Prot, K-PAX   Music Credits:“Pure Swell” by Podington Bear“My Sharona” MIDI “Where Have All The Cowboys Gone” MIDI "Back In Time” by YV “I Need To Start Writing Things Down” by Chris Zabriskie   As always, special thanks to Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 055 - Kristy for President
01:01:42
The boys sit down for a fascinating and thought-provoking discussion about what the perfect government might be, but things get derailed essentially right out of the gate because Tanner has a cold and also, the attention-span of a fly. So, if you came looking to sink your teeth into some political philosophy, prepare to be disappointed, because this ended up being mostly about where Alan Gray fits on a D&D alignment chart, what Karen Brewer's latest business idea is all about, and why all the boy craziest baby-sitters seem to end up alone. Also, there's a new hidden force in Stoneybrook, and it's the scariest yet.  Music credits: “Heartbreak,” by Bauhinian Vibes “Klonkey Donkey,” by Nicolai Heidlas Music   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 054 - Mary Anne + 2 Many Babies
00:56:29
We hit a record-setting number of segments this week, but what do you expect when you’re dealing with 2 MANY BABIES! (We’re still not totally sure what that title is supposed to mean, but don’t worry, we never get around to discussing it.) This week, Mary Anne and Logan get married and kiss in front of their classmates, an egg-napper is on the loose in Stoneybrook, and there may be a new queen ascending who could be the songstress Adele!   Audio Credits:   "Lurking in the Depths" by Grumpy Music "Horror Creepy Children Shouting" by SoundEffectsFactory "Glitch Drone FX” by Glitch Noise Effects "The Wide Drone” by RoyaltyFreeSounds "Entrance to the Queen of Sheba for Two Oboes, Strings” by Georg Friedrich Händel “My Sharona” MIDI “Mad World” MIDI   "bicycle 2D" by Anes & Bateaux “Savage” by Paul Flint     Thanks to Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 053 - Stacey's Ex-Best Friend
00:59:44
Hello and welcome to Blackheads! A hit new show from your friends Jack and Tanner, of the Pete Black Appreciation Society. Today we're diving deep into the mysterious case of Pete's misguided infatuation with Laine Cummings, Stacey McGill's surprisingly awful ex-best friend. Join us for a wide-ranging convo about love, loss, the future of the BSC and, of course, the nightmare haunted dolls who control our every thought and action.

BSCC 052 - Dawn’s Big Date
00:58:57
After the long, dark night of the soul, we finally have a New Dawn, Baby Nation. And despite the fact that she looks a little like a late era Axl Rose, she’s captured the attention of a new Bruno named Lewis. Can Dawn escape the thrall of Lewis Bruno? Can Mary-Ann just chill for, like, a second? Can we find Norman Hill a new family? Well, your guess is as good as ours. Tanner had to do a LOT of Googlin’ this week.   Audio credits: “Trickledown” by Podington Bear ”Be Together” by Zaza “Overture” by Lionheart "My Sharona" MIDI   Special thanks to Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 051 - Claudia and the Genius of Elm Street
00:58:26
Let go of your hearts this week, Baby Nation, and for good measure let go of your heads as well, because this episode is a giant trust fall through space and time into a strange and glorious future. If that worries you, here are some discussion questions to keep you grounded: Is Claudia's art derivative or is she making a deliberate point about the anxiety of influence? Can Janine be stopped before she creates an artificial intelligence that destroys the world? And did you know that when it snows my eyes become large and the light that you shine can't be seen? See you on the other side, Baby Nation!   Audio credits:    “The Son of Blacksmith,” by Charles Chulainn “The Mysterious World 2,” by Staruss Stuff “Atoms,” by Spire Wolf “Don’t Leave Me,” by Lionel Schmitt   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music. 
Feb 13, 2017
BSCC: Little Sister - Karen’s Kittycat Club
00:35:44
A very special bonus "Little Sister, Little episode," a phrase which Jack and Tanner utter about 700 times during this particular conversation because, frankly, they would not pass a field sobriety test if the podcast police dropped by during this recording. Luckily, their good buddies Goliath Hardbody and Jason Jasonson are there to keep them on track and bring you an insightful and thought-provoking insider's analysis of Karen Brewer's disruptive new startup, the Kittycat Club.  Music credits: “Funny Song,” by Royalty Free Music “Don’t Leave Me,” by Lionel Schmitt
Feb 09, 2017
BSCC 050 - Jessi’s Wish
00:53:24
Difficult episode this week, Baby Nation! And not just because of the subject matter, which is TOUGH, but also because apparently every single airplane in America decided to buzz by Jack’s apartment during this recording session?! Look, this episode is mostly about Jack and Tanner doing their best NOT to talk about childhood cancer, but Ann insisted. Oh well.   Music Credits: "Arboles" by Podington Bear “Wren” by Podington Bear “Haunted” by CO.AG Music “YO!” by Stratus   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 049 - Mallory on Strike
00:56:27
    There's no easy way of saying this, Baby Nation, but Mallory is over it. She's sick and tired of her abundant chores, the endless parade of babies she's required to sit, and the constant, relentless terror of living in a parallel-universe nightmare town, infested with living dolls, chaos dinosaurs, and as of recently, wolves. Stick around for all of that, as well as a very important PSA from Jack and Tanner about exactly how much time you should be putting in at the office, because some of us may have misunderstood the rules on that one.    Music Credits:   “Triumph of Hope,” by Bausic Productions “Mary’s Little World,” by Ryan Creep “Sky,” by PlatinumEDM “Don’t Leave Me,” by Lionel Schmitt   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 048 - Mary Anne Misses Logan
00:56:05
We’re considering changing the name of the show to “The Pete Black Club” because we discovered our favorite character in the entire series this week. Here’s all the rad stuff Pete Black did this week: Burned Cokie Mason, worked on his part of the school project, and found a way for Tanner to mention Bread Theory. There’s some other less important characters in this book like Mary Anne and Logan and a toilet monster, but we can’t really remember what they got up to because we were so laser focused on Pete Black’s antics.   Music Credits: “Detroit" by Podington Bear "Party Hard” by Mike L “Constellation" by Podington Bear “My Sharona” MIDI Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 047 - Kristy and the Baby Parade
00:57:38
It's been awhile since we had some good, clean baby-sitting fun, but that's what Kristy always brings to the table, and this "Baby Parade" lark is no different. Sit back, relax, and enjoy what can only be described as a romp, as Kristy Thomas pits baby against baby in a bloody, catastrophic battle for the future of civilization, while Jack and Tanner have a good, old-fashioned gossip sesh about Communism and Killer Dolls.    Music Credits:   “Spooky Ride,” by Twin Musicom “8-Bit Black Parade,” by 8-Bit Sound “Electro Upbeat EDM,” by Metro “Red Army Choir Russian National Anthem,” by Yurttan Haberler   Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and to Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 046 - Dawn and the Big Sleepover
00:50:03
Have the boys got a special treat for you, Baby Nation! Did you know that Jack and Tanner are actually officials with the Parisian government? It’s true! And they have an opportunity of a lifetime for you. For just 500,000 Francs, you can buy the rights to all the scrap metal on the Eiffel Tower to do with what you please. DO NOT PASS UP THIS CHANCE, BABY NATION!   Music Credits: “Meditation” by Joshua Messick "Tomorrow Comes" by Dana Boulé "You Gotta Have Theremin and Ukulele” by SquidLord "Invincible” by Deaf Kev “Starling" by Podington Bear   Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC: Little Sister - Karen’s Worst Day
00:35:51
Another very special bonus mini-episode hosted by the great Tanner Daniel Greenring! Jack is also present. This week, the boys are discussing "Karen's Worst Day," a terrifying thought experiment by Ann M. Martin about a world in which literally everything goes horrifyingly, irrevocably wrong.  Music credits: “Intense Suspense,” by Audionatix
Jan 05, 2017
BSCC 045 - Stacey's Emergency
00:53:31
We've come to the end of the road for our friend Anastasia McGill. Ann M. Martin's mercy is infinite, but her patience is not, and if one of these baby-sitters was going to get the  ol' "Ned Stark" treatment, it was basically always going to be Stacey. Jack and Tanner spend most of the episode grappling with their guilt about the fact that they don't really miss her all that much, and Jack desperately and somewhat pathetically tries to gin up a conversation about German philosophy.  Music credits:    “Drama Track 10,” by Mohammed Monir “Don’t Leave Me,” by Lionel Schmitt “Hype,” by Spire Wolf   Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 044 - Jessi and the Dance School Phantom
00:52:27
A shadow lurks in the wings while Jessi Ramsey dances for her life on stage... Jack and Tanner receive a mysterious smuggled message from an unexpected source... And the baby-sitters have a pet show! Really just a stunning amount of content in this book. Enough to make you wonder whether some nefarious entity behind the scenes might just be pushing Ann M. Martin a little bit too hard.  Music credits:  “Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta,” by Bela Bartok “AnonymOus,” by Snowbird    Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC: Secret Santa - Secret Episode
00:34:24
Ho Ho Ho! And welcome to a very special holidays episode of the Baby-Sitters Club Club. Ole’ Saint Ann squeezed down the chimney to give Baby Nation the gift of the Baby-Sitters Club Secret Santa book, which Jack and Tanner read and discuss this week, just in time for Christmas. Then the boys find some holiday joy in their hearts and give some Secret Santa gifts to one another as well! In fact, Jack WANDERS right into Tanner’s trap when he gets his very special gift on this bonus episode. Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music!
Dec 22, 2016
BSCC 043 - Mary Anne Vs. Logan
00:52:20
Love is dead, and Mary-Anne and Logan are the two who killed it. That’s right baby nation, your second-favorite duo is no more (your first-favorite being Jack and Tanner, of course)and a new life is coming to Stoneybrook, which means an old life must be extinguished. Nice knowing you, Stacey! Also, Saint Martin blesses us with a new rule mechanic for Wandering Frog People that should make the game a little more exciting in the coming weeks.  Music credits: “Tucson” by Silent Partner “Canary” by Jim Yosef “ILY” by Axol Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 042 - Claudia and the Middle School Mystery
00:52:43
Claudia Kishi may or may not have cheated on a test, but that's not the only crime against humanity we're experiencing this week! Tanner learned a "fun" new kind of Pig-Latin from the Pike children, and Jack literally can. not. shut. up. about what "Theory of Justice" Ann M. Martin subscribes to, so both of these boys are up before the court right alongside cheatin' Claudia, asking that you find it in your deep and expansive hearts to forgive them.  Music credits: “Thunderbolts of Lightning,” by teknoaxe “Battle Cry,” by NGB “Overture,” by Lionheart   Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and Superbrat for the outro music.

BSCC 041 - Poor Mallory!
00:48:17
Jack and Tanner are together again recording in the same space this week. In fact, they’re recording in Jack’s “study” which is a cozier space that usual, so things get a little… intimate. This week, the boys discuss the works of Dickens, the simmering war between the newest factions, and get ready for the BSCC’s most dynamic theory to date: BREAD THEORY.   Music credits:   "Bagpipes of Nostaglia” by TYLTK "Mazurka in D major” by Frédéric Chopin - Performed by Edward Neeman “Melancholia” by Ryan Creep "You're Not My Dad!

BSCC 040 - Kristy's Mystery Admirer
00:48:58
Deep inside Stoneybrook Middle School is a waypoint, a marker in time from which a thousand timelines diverge, like ripples in a stream. It's where the dance is: The still point of the turning world. The dance in this case is the Halloween Hop, and the ripple in time that we're focused on this week is a ripple in which someone sent Kristy fingernail clippings in the mail, which I guess is what amounts to romance these days. Anyway, Kristy has a mystery admirer, and it's creepier than that sounds.  Music credits: “Electro Breaks Loop,” by Technoaxe, CC “Miles Away,” by Oxzide, CC “Road Less Traveled,” by Jonny Easton, CC   Thanks, as always, to original baby boy Scott Lamb for the intro music, and Superbrat for the outro music. 
Nov 28, 2016
BSCC 039 - Dawn and the Older Boy
00:48:44
Tanner checks in with Jack all the way from Paris to talk about Dawn's latest escapade with a gross older man named Travis. It's a Dawn book, so there are some inevitable religious undertones to deal with, but the main issue is the creepiness of Dawn and Travis's relationship, a topic that is treated with all the gravity that Tanner's atrocious French accent can muster.  Music credits: “Happy Chances,” by Nicolai Heidlas  “Let the Beat Drop,” by Anton Markus
Nov 21, 2016
BSCC 038 - Jessi's Baby-Sitter
00:48:55
Are all of us simply “the sat,” whose collective will is bent and shaped by the whims of some grand, cosmic Sitter, or do we shape our own destinies? Do we exist in some liminal state between the two, all of us both Sitter and Sat? Perhaps each of us is just living out a different manifestation of one of Jackie Rodowsky’s multitudinous lives? Find out the answers to all these questions on this week’s Baby-Sitter’s Club Club. Music Credits: "Scenes from Childhood, Op. 15 - XII.

00:45:57
  Happy Halloween, Baby Nation! Have we got a thematically appropriate episode for you this week! With the help of the Baby-Sitter's Club, Stacey discovers that Stoneybrook is build on an ancient burial ground, which is somehow the LEAST strange thing to happen in this book. Oh! Also, you all have a tough decision to make this week, Baby Nation: BURN or BEES.

BSCC 035 - Mary Anne and Too Many Boys
00:49:29
What should have been a nice, relaxing vacation to Sea City, New Jersey, turns into a catastrophe due to an unwieldy number of boys gumming up the works. Stacey gets straight-up dumped by local "nice guy" Toby (no known last name), Jackie Rodowsky faces his most desperate mission yet, and Mary Anne cries her way through another low-level crisis. Known boys, Tanner Greenring and Jack Shepherd, try their very best to unpack it all for you in BSCC #35, Mary Anne and Too Many Boys.  Music credits: “Alone,” by G-nit Beatz “Galactic Empire,” by Michael J.

00:47:34
“There are other worlds than these. That we are drawn there again and again has to do with the rose. I have no doubt of that, nor do I doubt that in some way I do not understand the rose is the Dark Tower.” - The Dark Tower: Wolves of the Calla This week Jack and Tanner talk about their favorite memes, a startling new artificial intelligence in Stoneybrook, the glaring, blood-colored field of roses still far from here, and the frightening rate at which the Mimi virus self-replicates and finds new human hosts to infect.  Music Credits: “#Ambient” by fave.

BSCC 033 - Kristy and the Secret of Susan
00:48:45
Stoneybrook is resplendent with colorful new characters, including Susan, who secretly struggles to find meaning in a world that makes no sense. This week, Jack and Tanner return to some old favorites when they discuss the bees we find in every corner of our lives, what Australians eat for brekky, and the horrifying, ongoing significance of June 10th.   Make sure to catch Jack and Tanner's guest appearances on the Real Weird Sisters podcast as well, where they sort the citizens of Stoneybrook into Hogwarts houses.   Find that here: http://www.realweirdsisters.com/sortinghatbsc/   Music Credits:   "Clair de Lune" by Claude Debussy, performed by Laurens Goedhart   "Dubstep Cello | Prelude from Suite No. 1 for Cello" by J.S.

BSCC 032 - Dawn's Wicked Stepsister
00:48:08
And it came to pass that Dawn and Mary Anne didn't enjoy sharing a bedroom as much as they thought they would. And Dawn in her righteousness did take the socks of Mr. Spier and pair them in such a way that they might be odd. And Jack and Tanner did look upon what Dawn had wrought, and they did pronounce it the sickest of burns. Also, things get kind of spooky, so maybe listen to this one with the lights on. Why the hell were you listening in the dark anyway?

BSCC 031 - Mary Anne and the Great Romance
00:48:11
To quote the Spice Girls, "Come a little bit closer baby, get it on, get it on. 'Cause tonight is the night when two become one." That's right, he went to her. And Jack and Tanner went to one another this week to discuss "Mary Anne and the Great Romance." Tons going on in Stoneybrook this week including twins continuing to be terrible, something used, something borrowed, something blue, and the wedding we've been waiting 25 books for.

BSCC 030 - Mallory and the Mystery Diary
00:48:10
Listen to two ghostly voices, trapped in amber, echoing out from the murky abyss that is the Baby-Sitters Club Club podcast. This week Mallory finds a diary, talks to a ghost, and teaches a young boy to read. Also this week, Jack and Tanner become U.S. citizens, burn their faces off, and confront Princeton’s own Ann M. Martin about her whereabouts on the evening of June 10, 1958.

BSCC 029 - Welcome Back, Stacey!
00:49:25
Guess who's back (Stacey's back). And there's not a whole lot we can do about it. Did Mimi have to die to make this happen? Does this mean that our beloved Mr. Spier is going to fall under the siren spell of Stacey's mom? Is it nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous Stoneybrook? Or is the best course of action to take arms against Mr. McGill, and by opposing, end him? Also, what the heck happened to those French Witch hunters? This episode is dedicated to the memory of our bravest little explorer, Jackie Rodowsky, (17 March 1880 – 17 March 1912). Music credits:   "Salsa n’ Samba," by R.

BSCC 028 - Jessi and the Superbrat
00:47:14
Think of Stoneybrook (if you don't already) as a lovely, welcoming bird's nest. Now imagine that a wicked cuckoo has passed its boundaries and laid a great big vile, impostor cuckoo's egg right inside that sacred nest. That's literally (LITERALLY) what happens this week when an entity called JOHN (aka The Superbrat) hatches inside our beautiful home and sets about destroying dear Jessi's life. Of course, if we'd only paid attention we would have known, because, as is ever the case in the Baby-Sitters Cycle, it was foretold.  Music credits:   "The Inner Demon," by Lionel Schmitt & ProjectSam, CC  MidiWorld.com "Rituals," by Warrio, CC "Crystal," by Zerryx & Midgranger, CC

BSCC 027 - Claudia and the Sad Goodbye
00:47:08
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today – Claudia, Janine, Mr. and Mrs. Kishi, the members of the Baby-Sitters Club, the Baby Nation, Jack, and Tanner – to say goodbye. To who (or what)? Well, we've got a lot of theories about that. You'll have to listen along and decide for yourself.

BSCC 026 - Mary Anne and the Search for Tigger
00:48:43
Everybody, in one way or another, is searching for a "Tigger" in their lives – for some people, the Tigger they are searching for is true love, for others, it's success, and for still others, it's a more inscrutable "meaning." In Mary Anne's case, it's her cat. Who went missing. We think Logan stole it.  Music credits: Robert Austin, "Carnival Lament”, CC   Phyrid, “Don’t Cry”, CC   Rikato, “Nebula”, CC   The Flash Music, “Eternity”, CC   Alexy Papazian, “Sympathy for Love”, CC   And of course, thank you to the original Baby Boy, Scott Lamb, for our theme music.

BSCC 025 - Kristy and the Mother's Day Surprise
00:48:34
The prophecy foretold of one that would unite the tribes. A being born of two worlds... of two clans, who would unite the people under her banner. Will this Mother's Day surprise fulfill the omen and seal the blood pact? Will the Seven become the One? Will Jackie Rodowsky ever find his way back to the present time?

BSCC 024 - Dawn on the Coast
00:49:47
Dawn is forced to choose between the grey purgatory of Stoneybrook and the breathtaking paradise of California. Which is upsetting for Jack and Tanner because they frankly didn't realize they had a choice when they decided to spend every passing moment living, breathing, and dreaming about Stoneybrook. Besides, how can any of us think about leaving when we're still not sure whether Mr. Spier can get it together and tell Dawn's mom how he feels BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.  Music Credits: Sadness, by Vak Karapeshian, CC Holy is the Lord of Host Union Choir, CC Love You Forever, by Yu Hsing Jow, CC Manslaughter, by Irish Zombie Pirates, CC Distorted Mirrors, by Moritz Demmer, CC   And of course, Scott Lamb for our theme music.

BSCC 023 - Jessi Ramsey, Pet-sitter
00:49:30
It's CIVIL WAR, which means it's time to pick sides, Baby Nation. Are you yearning for change like the Jacks and Mary Annes of this world? Even if it leads to corruption and incompetence? Or are you looking for a strong leader like Tanner and Kristy are? Even if it means giving up some of your civil liberties? Or are you more of a Jessi, just trying to do your damn job while the club crumbles around you? Where do your allegiances lie?

BSCC 022 - Mallory and the Trouble With Twins
00:47:04
Come play with us! Mallory's babysitting twins this week and it promises to be a fun, wholesome time that's not rotted through with any sinister evil at all. Plus, the boys discuss the gory ritual of ear-piercing, the troubling spectre of new babysitters on the horizon, and the frankly insane ensemble Claudia put together for this installment. There's also a bit of bad news about Mark Markson, who's on an increasingly desperate hunt for a new job ...   Music credits: Overture, by Lionheart / CC Acoustically driven instrumental, by Hyde / CC Let the Beat Drop, by Anton Markus / CC

BSCC: Little Sister - Karen's Roller Skates
00:26:12
Another very special bonus mini-episode for both the Baby Nation and the Baby Feudal States! Tanner and Jack sit down to discuss Baby-Sitters Little Sister #2: “Karen’s Roller Skates,” a book filled with babies, bees, Bone Doctors, and other stuff that starts with a “b.”
Jul 21, 2016
BSCC 021 - Kristy and the Walking Disaster
00:49:45
This week, the boys are in their element talking about the classic "American Sports" themes of football men, baseball men, and TIME TRAVEL, as well as Kristy's massive, unquenchable CRUSH on a beautiful brown-eyed boy named either Bart or Brad. Can Jackie Rodowsky hit a home run for Kristy's Krushers? Can Kristy get through the season without falling in love? Can this podcast pass the Bechdel Test? Find out in episode 21, "Kristy and the Walking Disaster."

BSCC 020 - Claudia and the Bad Joke
00:47:31
This week, Jack and Tanner meet to discuss the very complex mechanical and metaphysical implications of traversing the Planes of Chaos, also known as the Immaterium, from the Warhammer 40k universe, and whether or not the human mind is capable of making sense of a senseless reality where the laws of motion and energy do not apply. But, then we cut all that out, so I guess you'll just have to listen to them talk about The Baby-Sitters Club books instead.   Jack's re-cap song is "Touch" by Mattia Cupelli The Burn of the Week song is "Tell Me" by Killercats The Signs and Signifiers music is by Paul the Trombonist
Jul 11, 2016
BSCC 019 - Stacey's Mistake
00:46:13
Great! Everything is so great! Definitely no major catastrophes this week. Just your typical, high-energy, enthusiastic Jack and Tanner having a lively discussion about the next book in the Baby-Sitter's Club series: "Stacey's Mistake!" Stacey certainly made some mistakes this week, but not ole' Jack and Tanner. Those dudes have everything all figured out. Haha! So great! Just... great.
Jul 04, 2016
BSCC: Little Sister - Karen's Witch
00:25:29
In this very special bonus mini-episode, the boys discuss the first book in the BSC-spinoff Little Sister series, "Karen's Witch." Feast your ears on an intoxicating intoxicated journey through a magical land where the baby-sitters hold no sway, and the babies are running the asylum. DO NOT listen to this if you are afraid of witches. 
Jun 30, 2016
BSCC 018 - Mary Anne's Bad-Luck Mystery
00:45:44
It all goes down this week: Claudia loses herself, Logan reveals his true self, Mary Anne finds her faith, The cat-people have taken Louisville, and Jack and Tanner spend WAY too much time talking about 6th century philosopher Anicius Manlius Severinus Boëthius. But that's what you tune in for, right?   Music Credits: Haunted by Ross Bugden Triple Threat by Eliminate, INF1N1TE, & Nato Feelz [Creative Commons] Overture by The Lionheart [Creative Commons] MIDIworld.com   Thanks to: Scott Lamb for our theme music!

BSCC 017 - Jessi's Secret Language
00:48:28
Your wise-crackin' hosts Jackie and The Weasel are back again with more hilarious banter about their favorite topics from the wide world of "American Sports." And if that's not appealing to you demanding little monsters, they also spend a good chunk of time talking about the BSC's brand-new babysitter Jessi Ramsey, the infinite sadness of Claudia Kishi, and their own deep, heartfelt feeeeeeeelings. And dolls. Demonic, soul-swallowing dolls. Something for everybody in this one. 
Jun 20, 2016
BSCC 016 - Little Miss Stoneybrook... and Dawn
00:45:14
Kind of a segment-heavy week this week, but what do you expect when you're trying to impress the judges of the Little Miss Stoneybrook Pageant? The babysitters each Dance Mom their own contestant in the pageant in this book, and things get (surprise, surprise) a little fraught. Don't worry too much though, because there's plenty of dangerous occult action and Marxist subtext to help ease the tension.
Jun 13, 2016
BSCC 015 (KII 001) - Hello, Mallory
00:49:54
Welcome to Kids Incorporated Inc.! Out with the old, and in with the new! Stacey is gone, but not forgotten and forgotten, and there's a NEW baby-sitter in town now, which you probably could have figured out from the title of today's episode. Think you're pretty smart, don't you? Well, smart guy, did you know that there's actually TWO new babysitters? You did? Oh, okay.
Jun 06, 2016
BSCC 014 - Good-Bye Stacey, Good-Bye
00:46:32
Stacey is moving out of Stoneybrook, and 4 to 10 new brides of Satan are moving in to take her place, so it's up to two undercover French witch-hunters to eradicate the evil threat looming over the town once and for all. Also, the dolls and are in control, and Jack and Tanner make a bet that the Baby Nation is going to have to hold them to, because they're DEFINITELY going to forget.
May 30, 2016
BSCC 012 - Claudia and the New Girl
00:49:20
There's a new girl in Stoneybrook named Ashley Wyeth, and she's captured the attention of a certain young babysitter named Claudia. But, more importantly, there's a newcomer to the podcast as well named Goliath Hardbody, and we think you listeners are really going to like him. (But please don't fall in love with him and leave the podcast. We need you. You're all we have.)
May 16, 2016
BSCC 011 - Kristy and the Snobs
00:48:30
Nothing matters. Everyone is afraid. We're lucky we've even lived long enough to see today, and in another hundred years, none of us will be here. This one is kinda a bummer. Sorry.
May 09, 2016
BSCC 010 - Logan Likes Mary Anne
00:46:52
There's a snake in the grass in Stoneybrook this week, and he's got his treacherous eyes on our sweet Mary Anne Spier. Loads to discuss this week including: the X-Men's Wolverine, Negging, demigods with either no or two penises, and of course, the blossoming love between Logan and Mary Anne.
May 02, 2016
BSCC 009 - The Ghost at Dawn's House
00:49:38
If there's something strange in Dawn's house... who you gonna call? The Baby-sitter's Club Club! This week, the girls (and by extension, the boys) dive deep into the world of paranormal activity, cause there's a ghost y'all, and it's living in Dawn's crawl space, and it's eating ice cream, and doing a bunch of other things you'd expect a 9-year-old boy to do. On unrelated news, 9-year-old Nicky Pike keeps disappearing and hiding in an unknown location.
Apr 25, 2016
BSCC 008 - Boy-Crazy Stacey
00:46:53
The boys are back, but I'm not talking about the boys Stacey is crazy about, I'm talking about Jack and Tanner, who read "Boy-Crazy Stacey" this week. This shouldn't come as any surprise to you if you've listened to the last seven episodes, but they have a hard time staying on topic. Lots to discuss this week: bee theory, Kanye West, Victorian literature, and a surprise visit from Jack's secret British accent.
Apr 18, 2016
BSCC 007 - Claudia and Mean Janine
00:43:29
Tanner and Jack meet to discuss book seven of The Baby-Sitter's Club series, "Claudia and Mean Janine" and things get MEAN. This probably won't surprise you, but one of them identifies strongly with the fun, cool, and charming Claudia, and one of us is an insufferable, pedantic nerd.
Apr 11, 2016
BSCC 006 - Kristy's Big Day
00:45:39
Love! Marriage! Last minute 'spaghetti things' in the kitchen! It all happens this week when Jack and Tanner sit down to discuss book six of The Baby-sitter's Club, "Kristy's Big Day"! I hope you like Tearful Moments because you're gonna be drowning in our tears (well, Tanner's tears at least) this week.
Apr 04, 2016
BSCC 005 - Dawn and the Impossible Three
00:44:42
Tanner and Jack travel all the way to Germany, the birthplace of modern Lutheranism, to discuss the thinly veiled religious text that is book five of The Baby-sitter's Club, "Dawn and the Impossible Three." Tanner has a few too many helles biers and ends up role playing as an adult escort. Things get a little weird.
Mar 28, 2016
BSCC 004 - Mary Anne Saves the Day
00:44:37
Jack and Tanner discuss book four of The Baby-Sitter's Club, "Mary Ann Saves the Day." From what though? Is the Stoneybrook jewel thief back in action? Has The Agency risen to power again, threatening to destroy the club once and for all? Is it just a spat between a few friends based on a misunderstanding? You'll have to listen to find out!
Mar 21, 2016
BSCC 003 - The Truth About Stacey
00:43:08
This week, Jack and Tanner get to the bottom of the truth about Stacey, and uncover a few truths about themselves along the way. Just kidding! They definitely don't have the emotional intelligence required for any sort of meaningful introspection. They just make dumb jokes instead. Special thanks to Baby Boy #1 Scott Lamb for the theme tune, and Baby Girl #1 Andrea Hickey for the cover art!
Mar 14, 2016
BSCC 002 - Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls
00:40:38
Jack and Tanner go fully CSI on the quiet town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut and try to get to the bottom of a 30-year-old cold case involving a rash of high-profile burglaries. In the course of their investigation, they discover a dark secret about one of the town's young residents, Alan Gray. (The secret is that he likes Kristy.) Special thanks to our very first Baby Boy, Scott Lamb, for the theme music (https://twitter.com/scottlamb).

BSCC 001 - Kristy's Great Idea
00:43:14
Jack and Tanner sit down to discuss book one in the "Baby-sitters Club" series, "Kristy's Great Idea," and try to get to the bottom of what Kristy's idea is exactly, and why it's so great. (Spoiler: the idea is a baby-sitters club.)

Introducing The Baby-Sitters Club Club
00:03:26
A big dumb idiot and his brilliant, charming friend discuss the classic Baby-Sitters Club novels of Ann M. Martin in chronological order. Get ready to look with new eyes at the timeless adventures of Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey, and I guess Dawn. And probably Mallory too. Fine, and Jessi.
