The Baby-Sitters Club #7: Claudia and Mean Janine
This episode is The Baby-Sitters Club #7: Claudia and Mean Janine. Topics include sisters, Nancy Drew, and strokes. There was a serious problem with the last episode of Fear Street: Bad Dreams. The editor saved it in a weird order and I caught it while I was listening to it. Let's call that one the lost episode. Just so there is no gap in the episodes, here is one that I made while experimenting with a new editor that will, hopefully, not mess up. Thank for your patience. Hi! I’m Amy A. Cowan and I’m on a mission to reread every Baby-Sitters Club, Goosebumps, and Fear Street book and reexamine my childhood in the ‘90s. This is Rereading My Childhood - The Podcast.
