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.)

Rank #2: The Baby-Sitters Club Movie

Podcast cover

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!

Rank #3: 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.

Rank #6: 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.”

Rank #7: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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? ...

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.

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.

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.
