Defoe wrote this novel after his work as a journalist and pamphleteer. By 1722, Defoe had become recognized as a novelist, with the success of Robinson Crusoe in 1719. His political work was tapering off at this point, due to the fall of both Whig and Tory party leaders with whom he had been associated. - Defoe's Whig views are nevertheless evident in the story of Moll. The full title of the novel tells part of its story: "The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders, Etc. Who wa ...

The boys (and special guest Jaime Green) make a valiant effort to keep the rating on this one down and appease the censors, but end up with what can only be described as a raunchy, titillating, supercharged s*x romp. "The Governess Game" is a very naughty novel that does indeed have some babysitting in it but really is mostly frenching and groping …
 
STEVEN GREENHOUSE covered labor for the New ¥ork Times for 19 years. Unions played a key role when the American economy created the greatest middle class the world had ever seen. Given how clearly unions improved the lives of hundreds of millions of laborers, why did workers allow corporations and government to weaken and shrink those unions? What …
 
I talk about Biden's sadly DOA immigration bill and some of the really good stuff in it, the Facebook - Australia story, Ted Cruz's ill fated Cabo trip, Cuomo lying about the number of grandmas and grandpas that dies of COVID in NY nursing homes, my bewilderment at political parties hitching themselves to jackasses, and few other bits…
 
Impeachment #2 is over, Trump is still off Twitter, vaccines are on the rise, and Biden is committed to relief for American families.

The year is 1988 and it is prophesied that a bikini baby will bring about the downfall of an evil sorceress named Bad Mother. Consequently, Bad Mother attempts to steal the foretold child for a ritual murder, which is very bad babysitting. After the child escapes, Bilbo Baggins and his best friend Val Kilmer look after her until she can fulfill her…
 
In 1999, MICHAEL MANN co-authored a scientific paper that included a graph that tracked temperatures over the last 1000 years. Known as “the hockey stick,” it showed that climate change was real.

Can you babysit your own children? What if you're pretending to be someone else? Is it in any way creepy to disguise yourself as an elderly nanny and spy on your ex-wife? These are just a few of the nuanced and complex babysitting questions that are posed by the iconic 1993 babysitting film Mrs. Doubtfire, and as usual, the boys bring their sensiti…
 
Biden’s pitching unity, but he seems determined to go big and the Dems sound serious about accountability. Pandemic numbers are easing and vaccines increasing, but we fear the unknown of virus variants. Normal is not around the corner. How will we come out of this - as a society and as individuals? Here’s my 2014 conversation with DANIEL GOLEMAN. I…
 
Well January sure turned out to be a weird month no? This past week capped it off with the rise of meme investing, preparing for impeachment 2.0, and a Texas court blocking Biden's 100 day deportation moratorium. A heads up - I'll be announcing in the next week changes to my Patreon and Substack accounts going forward, keep an eye out…
 
Much like the local mall where a giant meat monster does a big battle in the hit TV show "Stranger Things," this episode could be best described as a disaster scene. Someone forgot to take notes, someone else was in a salty mood because of work, and someone who we thought was going to help us never showed up! Anyway, Steve Harrington from Stranger …

Let's take a trip back to the early days of babysitting: It was 1987, and an unsuspecting world was just beginning to appreciate the giddy highs and the awful lows of sitting babies thanks to the pioneering work of Ann M. Martin. But what if ... babysitting on the big screen?! Enter ... "Adventures in Babysitting," the ultimate babysitting adventur…
 
Last week I spoke with ARLIE HOCHSCHILD, author of STRANGERS IN THEIR OWN LAND: Anger & Mourning on the American Right, about the Trump years, the insrrection, and the future.

The past week brought us Trump's second impeachment, details on the upcoming inauguration, and details on just how stupid (or overly confident) the Capitol rioters were. I also discuss the upcoming battle over the next stimulus bill and how jamming a $15 minimum wage requirement in it might have poison pilled it. Don't forget to subscribe to my Sub…
 
One of the great babysitting novels of all time, Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" is a story about an ongoing act of ambulatory babysitting right at the very end of the world. And it's just as fun as it sounds! Now, in glorious stereo sound, you can hear two complete buffoons talk about it. What BSC novel is this based on? What tweaks could we make to …
 
I last spoke with Berkeley sociologist ARLIE HOCHSCHILD in 2018 about her book, STRANGERS IN THEIR OWN LAND: Anger & Mourning on the American Right, in which she shares what she learned in five years talking to Tea Partiers turned Trumpers in Southern Louisiana. Turns out she's continued to talk with the folks she met researching her book. I call o…
 
Aquatic babysitting is one of the hardest types of babysitting there is, as Dawn and Claudia famously learned in Babysitters Island Adventure; as Kristy notoriously discovered in Babysitters on Board; and as Kevin Costner comes to realize in the hit 1995 film about boat babysitters called Waterworld. This one's got lots of useful tips for babysitti…
 
It is a significant achievement and an enormous relief that the White House and both Houses of Congress are out of the hands of the anti-social and anti-democratic Republicans. To remind us, however, what made Trump not just possible but likely, here’s my 2012 conversation with HEDRICK SMITH, about his book, WHO STOLE THE AMERICAN DREAM? It makes c…
 
Good news -- it's 2021! Bad news -- January is going to be a hell of a month We've got a fight over if Congress will approve additional direct stimulus finds (no), a vaccine rollout that's not going so great (eh), the first shot fired in the Vaccine War (yikes), and a last ditch phone call from to get the results of the Georgia election altered (oh…
