Ep 57 Wasted Opportunity; or BSC 15 Little Miss Stoneybrook…and Dawn by Ann M. Martin

We jump into the pageant circuit this week in BSC 15 Little Miss Stoneybrook…and Dawn by Ann M. Martin. It’s a good book, but Steven needs to re-write it with his own Great Idea. We also discuss Jess’s BRIEF pageant moment, Steven’s worst injury, and check in with Ann to make sure she’s doing ok during the pandemic. http://traffic.libsyn.com/fightingoverthecardcatalog/Ep_57_Little_Miss_Stoneybrook_and_Dawn_Final_-_4220_3.08_PM.mp3 Thanks for listening!

Ep 53 Heart Eyes Emoji Send; or BSC 14 Hello, Mallory!

What’s the difference between creeping and crawling? Nobody knows! Especially not Mallory, our sweet baby nerd, and newest member of the BSC cult! But we’ll try to find out in BSC 14 Hello, Mallory by Ann M. Martin. We also meet the prodigy ballerina herself, Jessi, whose very existence exposes the racism in our seemingly perfect Stoneybrook.  Plus K!I!D!S! Looks like we made it! It’s Kids Incorporated! (For serious, if anyone is interested in doing a Kids Inc pod, about…

Ep 44 In the Breadbox of Friendship; or Claudia and the New Girl

Ep 44 In the Breadbox of Friendship; or Claudia and the New Girl

YOU. ARE. A. CRUMB. And that’s how you insult a traitorous teenage girl, I guess. This week we REALLY start getting into the cult-like mentality of the Baby-Sitters Club, in Claudia and the New Girl. How DARE Claudia give more attention to ANYTHING ELSE other than baby-sitting! Ugh! And though the new girl is very focused herself, she may have also been ahead of her time fashion wise. Oh yeah, SO! MANY! FASHION ALERTS! Thanks for listening! Hey, if you’ve…

Ep 38 Jess Cries & Almost Dies

Ep 38 Jess Cries & Almost Dies

Baby-Sitters Club #12 Kristy and the Snobs The episode Jess has been dreading the most! CW for dog death. This is an EMOTIONAL one, y’all! This one mainly deals with the decline of Kristy’s collie, Louie, and we frankly can not handle that. But at least Stacey really weirds some bratty kids out, and then there are other baby-sitting chapters that are entirely unnecessary. BUT MAINLY ANIMAL SADZ. We were too emotional to remember to do our current reads (apologies)…

Ep 28 Bikinis, Boys, and Baby-Sitters

Wow, we had a great first 20 minutes! But do you get to hear it? No, cause Jess didn’t record it.  But once we get back on track, we head to Sea City with Stacey, Mary Anne, and the Pikes! Where we find hot lifeguards, sunburns, and friend burns. And so much LUV. Except for Karen Brewer. Steven gets mad at her again. It’s fine. Thanks for listening!
