    Remembering "The Da Vinci Code"

    In this special one-off episode, Dan Brown scholars and archivists Jack Shepherd and Tanner Greenring collaborate to painstakingly recreate the first chapter "The Da Vinci Code" for posterity. This astonishing oral history will be part of the living memory of our culture for as long as humans tell stories to one another, and as an act of public service for a world community that hungers to collectively remember this vital text, it is unparalleled.

    BSCC Presents: Babysitting in "Jane Eyre"

    BSCC Presents: Babysitting in "Jane Eyre"

    Some fun (and let's be honest, quite sexy!) spoilers for the classic baby-sitting novel (she's a governess!) "Jane Eyre"  in this episode — a book you've had 174 YEARS to read. What else do you need to know ... let's see ... Team Jane all the way, Rochester's a mega-creep, and the name of the First Century British queen who led an uprising against the Romans can in fact be pronounced "Bo-Di-See-A" — I looked it up — so eat it, Tanner. We can also officially reveal that this book is very good and also we loved this one!

    BSCC Presents: Babysitting Anakin Skywalker

    BSCC Presents: Babysitting Anakin Skywalker

    Perhaps the most highly anticipated babysitting movie of all time, "The Phantom Menace" proved to be a showcase of just how bad babysitting can be when left in the hands of a director with no one nearby to rein in his worst impulses. As a result, baby Anakin is allowed by the Babysitters Club consisting of Obi Wan and his friend Jim to do dangerous driving and age-inappropriate flirting, which leads him inevitably to become an insufferable teenager and, later, a dark lord of evil. Nonetheless, some of us loved this one anyway.

    BSCC Presents: Babysitting on "Baby Island"

    BSCC Presents: Babysitting on "Baby Island"

    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 one.

caaaaaaaaaatb ,

fave.

Re-listen from the beginning; it feels like old pals. The new post-BSC episodes have a chaos I really
enjoy too. Innovative and witty? Sure. Groundbreaking? Maybe. Fun? Absolutely.

Five stars - I love it.

Lovechump ,

Refreshingly silly

These guys are the best, whether they’re talking about Claudia Kishi’s rad sense of style or the most random ways Star Wars is actually about babysitting.

If you need a laugh during lock down, look no further!

Spleenyo ,

Great host dynamic

Tanner clearly gets on Jack’s nerves sometimes but when they get on the same wavelength they can create amazing moments of comedy.
