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.

Rank #4: BSCSC 008 - Baby-sitters at Shadow Lake

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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!

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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? ...

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.

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.

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.

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.

OK, deep breath. Everything’s fine. We’re fine. Nothing to worry about here. Truth Translation: *muffled screams.*

California Diaries: Dawn (Two)

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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)

Podcast cover

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)

Podcast cover
Read more

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?

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.

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.

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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!
