BSCMC 036 - Kristy and the Cat Burglar

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

BSCC Live: Super Mystery 001: Baby-Sitters Haunted House

Podcast cover

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

BSCMC 033 - Stacey and the Stolen Hearts

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

“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.”

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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

Podcast cover
Read more

'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

Podcast cover
Read more

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!

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!

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.

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.
