082 - Mallory Pike, #1 Fan
Oct 9 • 66 min
This week’s book is a clear cry for help from the Primarch of Princeton herself, and Ann – if you’re reading this – we hear you! And if you’re open to notes, we want to let you know that writing a step-by-step guide on how to stalk children’s books…

BSCC: Little Sister - Karen’s School Picture
Aug 10 • 52 min
Y’all, the boys were pretty sauced for this episode. But that’s OK because it’s a Little Sister, Little Episode, where things are fast, loose, fun, and frisky. And despite all of that speed and friskiness, Jack and Tanner pull off some hard-hitting…
073 - Claudia and the Perfect Boy
Aug 7 • 69 min
If there is such a thing in the world as a Perfect Boy, what would he be like? Would he be like Rand al Thor, from Robert Jordan’s tedious and bloated Wheel of Time saga? Would he be like Robyn or Rand Miller, the brothers behind the 1993 graphic…

Jul 31 • 66 min
This week, two inept hosts who WERE NOT born during a storm NOR during a Super Bowl game try their very best to describe and discuss a Baby-Sitters Club book written by two beautiful storm-touched souls. And there’s no sign more clear that Jack and Tanner…
071 - Get Well Soon, Mallory!
Jul 24 • 66 min

069 - Dawn’s Big Move
Jul 10 • 73 min

Jul 3 • 81 min

068 - Maid Mary Anne
Jun 26 • 70 min
It’s a real sewing circle jerk this week, Baby Nation (to use a technical term), and if you happen to be into that sort of thing AND you’re a fan of the 1990 fantasy graphic adventure game “Loom,” this one’s really going to be right in your sweet spot.…
067 - Stacey’s Big Crush
Jun 19 • 63 min

062 - Mary Anne’s Makeover
May 8 • 67 min
Mary Anne is finally getting that makeover we’ve been hearing about for so long! We also have reason to believe that Mr. Spier and Logan have a lot more in common than we thought, and that Mr. Spier and the X-Men’s Wolverine have a lot more in common than…

Apr 24 • 69 min
It’s “pandemonium” in Stoneybrook this week! Which means, troublingly, that ALL the demons are back. And, perhaps worse, all the boys are being strange and difficult, which is stressing Mallory out to no end. A guest appearance from some of the business…

058 - Keep Out, Claudia!
Apr 3 • 64 min
There’s some new babies in Stoneybrook this week, and they only thing they love more than Kid Kits is racial purity! That’s right, they’re racist! Like, so awful and racist that it’s almost absurd. Not exactly easy to riff on, but they may be Doll People…
