Rank #2: BSCMC 023 - Abby and the Secret Society

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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.

Rank #7: 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.

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!

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.

“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.”

Rank #13: BSCC 090 - Stacey and the Bad Girls

Podcast cover
Read more

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? ...

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.

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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.

Rank #18: BSCC 109 - Claudia Kishi, Queen of the Seventh Grade

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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.)
