Come play with us! Mallory's babysitting twins this week and it promises to be a fun, wholesome time that's not rotted through with any sinister evil at all. Plus, the boys discuss the gory ritual of ear-piercing, the troubling spectre of new babysitters on the horizon, and the frankly insane ensemble Claudia put together for this installment. There's also a bit of bad news about Mark Markson, who's on an increasingly desperate hunt for a new job ...

Another very special bonus mini-episode for both the Baby Nation and the Baby Feudal States! Tanner and Jack sit down to discuss Baby-Sitters Little Sister #2: “Karen’s Roller Skates,” a book filled with babies, bees, Bone Doctors, and other stuff that starts with a “b.”

This week, the boys are in their element talking about the classic "American Sports" themes of football men, baseball men, and TIME TRAVEL, as well as Kristy's massive, unquenchable CRUSH on a beautiful brown-eyed boy named either Bart or Brad. Can Jackie Rodowsky hit a home run for Kristy's Krushers? Can Kristy get through the season without falling in love? Can this podcast pass the Bechdel Test? Find out in episode 21, "Kristy and the Walking Disaster."

The Bechdel Test Theme song is "Let the Beat Drop" by Anton Markus

The Burn of the Week song is "Tell Me" by Killercats

The Tearful Moment song is "Energetic Beat Drop" by Kevin Boydston

This week, Jack and Tanner meet to discuss the very complex mechanical and metaphysical implications of traversing the Planes of Chaos, also known as the Immaterium, from the Warhammer 40k universe, and whether or not the human mind is capable of making sense of a senseless reality where the laws of motion and energy do not apply. But, then we cut all that out, so I guess you'll just have to listen to them talk about The Baby-Sitters Club books instead.


Jack's re-cap song is "Touch" by Mattia Cupelli

The Burn of the Week song is "Tell Me" by Killercats

The Signs and Signifiers music is by Paul the Trombonist

Great! Everything is so great! Definitely no major catastrophes this week. Just your typical, high-energy, enthusiastic Jack and Tanner having a lively discussion about the next book in the <i>Baby-Sitter's Club</i> series: "Stacey's Mistake!" Stacey certainly made some mistakes this week, but not ole' Jack and Tanner. Those dudes have everything all figured out. Haha! So great! Just... great.
