BSCC Presents: Babysitting on "Baby Island"

4/5/2021
It takes a lot to surprise two boys who've encountered every form of babysitting from leopards to Tiny Yoda to that time Jake Kuhn fell down a well and had to babysit himself for a few days. But even these hardened babysitting veterans were put through their paces by this literal island of babies (plus, this one dude), who are sat — within an inch of their tiny lives — by the unflappable, incandescent force of babysitting that is the sisters Mary and Jean Wallace. We frickin' loved this...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Kids From "One Fine Day"

3/22/2021
One huge fan, one reluctant cohost, and one perfect babysitting movie makes for one particularly fine day over here at BSCC headquarters, where we're talking about a surprisingly polarizing 1996 Rom-Com starring Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney. This one has a deep dark chocolate layer, LSD, and a surprising visitor from Stoneybrook!

BSCC Presents: Babysitting "Baby" From "Bringing Up Baby" (feat. Sarah Morgan)

3/15/2021
What do you do when your baby is an actual leopard and the man you love is kind of a chicken? Is the question this fascinating babysitting film from the olden times seeks to answer with about a hundred hijinks per minute. The boys, and extremely special guest Sarah Morgan, are on hand to provide thoughtful, professional, and erudite analysis in an entirely non-screwball manner. Music credits: "Jazz," by Texas Brother "Jazz It Up," by Allen Grey Thanks as always to original Baby Boy Scott...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Kids in "He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special"

3/8/2021
No jokes or digressions this week, because we've got an imposing amount of critical theory related to the seminal '80s babysitting text, "He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special," to cover. Buckle your seatbelts and strap in for a dry but informative disquisition on themes of duality and identity in the Kingdom of Eternia, a wearisome but exhaustive analysis of the embedded power structures on Horde World, and a lengthy historical account of the origins of "Snout Spout." Music...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting Jake From "The Gunslinger"

3/1/2021
The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed. Along the way, he did some pretty heavy-duty babysitting, took a bunch of mescaline, and shot everyone in a town. This week, the boys dive deep into the first book of Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series in their ongoing quest to ferret out babysitting wherever it may lurk. Music credits: "Western Background," by CineMedia "Spaghetti Western," by Luca Francini “You Gotta Have Theremin and Ukulele,” by...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Kids From "The Governess Game" (feat. Jaime Green)

2/22/2021
The boys (and special guest Jaime Green) make a valiant effort to keep the rating on this one down and appease the censors, but end up with what can only be described as a raunchy, titillating, supercharged s*x romp. "The Governess Game" is a very naughty novel that does indeed have some babysitting in it but really is mostly frenching and groping and generally getting to third base. Draw up a warm bubble bath, light some candles, and settle in for a legitimately wild ride. Music...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Baby From "Willow"

2/15/2021
The year is 1988 and it is prophesied that a bikini baby will bring about the downfall of an evil sorceress named Bad Mother. Consequently, Bad Mother attempts to steal the foretold child for a ritual murder, which is very bad babysitting. After the child escapes, Bilbo Baggins and his best friend Val Kilmer look after her until she can fulfill her destiny. This is very good babysitting. And when there's good babysitting happening, you can be certain that the Babysitters Club Club will be...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Kids From Mrs. Doubtfire

2/8/2021
Can you babysit your own children? What if you're pretending to be someone else? Is it in any way creepy to disguise yourself as an elderly nanny and spy on your ex-wife? These are just a few of the nuanced and complex babysitting questions that are posed by the iconic 1993 babysitting film Mrs. Doubtfire, and as usual, the boys bring their sensitive and thoughtful insights to bear on this important cultural artifact in a way that is both thought-provoking and intelligible. Music...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Kids From "Stranger Things"

2/1/2021
Much like the local mall where a giant meat monster does a big battle in the hit TV show "Stranger Things," this episode could be best described as a disaster scene. Someone forgot to take notes, someone else was in a salty mood because of work, and someone who we thought was going to help us never showed up! Anyway, Steve Harrington from Stranger Things is a famous babysitter and famous babysitters is what we talk about, so we tried to talk about him for an hour. Good luck listening! Music...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Kids From "Adventures in Babysitting"

1/25/2021
Let's take a trip back to the early days of babysitting: It was 1987, and an unsuspecting world was just beginning to appreciate the giddy highs and the awful lows of sitting babies thanks to the pioneering work of Ann M. Martin. But what if ... babysitting on the big screen?! Enter ... "Adventures in Babysitting," the ultimate babysitting adventure of our time. And what better guides to this historic babysitting breakthrough than the world's most impressive babysitting experts: These guys....

BSCC Presents: Babysitting The Boy From "The Road"

1/18/2021
One of the great babysitting novels of all time, Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" is a story about an ongoing act of ambulatory babysitting right at the very end of the world. And it's just as fun as it sounds! Now, in glorious stereo sound, you can hear two complete buffoons talk about it. What BSC novel is this based on? What tweaks could we make to make this a little bit more fun and funky? Is this, to use a technical term, "Good Clean Baby-Sitting Fun"? Answers to all these questions and...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting the Girl From Waterworld

1/11/2021
Aquatic babysitting is one of the hardest types of babysitting there is, as Dawn and Claudia famously learned in Babysitters Island Adventure; as Kristy notoriously discovered in Babysitters on Board; and as Kevin Costner comes to realize in the hit 1995 film about boat babysitters called Waterworld. This one's got lots of useful tips for babysitting at sea, a helpful guide to what you can do with your Camel Cash, and a totally unnecessary discussion of Dominoes' iconic character "The...

BSCC Presents: Babysitting Baby Yoda

The boys from the baby-sitters club club are back for yet another scintillating discussion of baby-sitting style and technique, this time in the smash-hit baby-sitting-themed video novel, The Mandalorian. Listen and enjoy as the boys talk about tiny green yoda and the big babysitter who never takes off his hat.

Baby-Sitters Club: The Summer Before

12/21/2020
In an act of dangerous desperation, Ann has attempted to go back in time and fix what she set into motion before it ever started. An astonishing, rapturous novel about beginnings and endings – sometimes all at once – that can only be described as "scintillating." It is no surprise that this one has everything – dolls, bees, orbs, time travel, vampires (?!), and of course: good 👏 clean 👏 baby 👏 sitting 👏 fun.

The Baby-sitters Experience 2: Logan Vs. Slowking (feat. Josh Fjelstad)

12/14/2020
This one's a mess. Josh and Jack from the hit Pokemon/Baby-Sitters Club crossover podcast "The Babysitters Experience" make a good-faith attempt to discuss "Pokemon The Movie 2000" and "Logan Likes Mary Anne" the graphic novel, but their nice podcast is sabotaged and also vandalized and, frankly, ruined.

The Baby-Sitters Club Guide to Baby-Sitting

12/7/2020
In 1993, Ann and two distinctly separate beings who would later fuse into one uncanny entity joined forces to create what they thought would be the one book to end them all: The ultimate guide to baby-sitting, featuring everything anyone could possibly want to know about head wounds, house fires, and bad burps. This week, our intrepid heroes ventured into that book and, somehow, lived to tell the tale. Music credits: “Stardust,” by Fox Beat Stock Music "Elevator Music," by...
