Ep 51: Gateway books to lifetime reading with The Baby-Sitters Club Club

Day 3 of our special Reading For A Lifetime series is all about "guilty pleasure" kid lit - the series we read and re-read not because they were Great Literature, but because they were gosh-darn fun! Numerous comments from WSIRN listeners pointed us to The Babysitters Club Club, a podcast that explores the Babysitters Club books, a hallmark of nostalgic guilty pleasure reading, week by week, book by book. The hosts, Jack Shepherd and Tanner Greenring, each have their own interesting stories of how they found the series, and why—as thirty-something men—they've chosen to devote a large chunk of their time and attention to the books. In this episode we dive into what this series means to readers of all ages, why these books have such staying power, which babysitter we most identify with, and what Jack and Tanner are reading when they're not reading The Babysitters Club.
