IMDB entry for this episode


Written by Wil Calhoun and Bill Masters and Jay Scherick
Directed by Tom Cherones

Oh no, it’s El Diablo!  Jessie Weinberg joins us for some misadventures in babysitting in episode 1.17, “Caroline and the Kid”!  We discuss epic tales told through face acting, surprising parallels between Caroline in the City and Hemingway, “Bulge Hackman”, mullets on youths, and the uniquely ‘90s humiliation of being bullied into a trip to Kinko’s.  I believe that’s going to cost a famous director/choreographer his lunch money!

This week's "plugs":

Amy recommends The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed!

This week's guest

Jessie Weinberg is an artist and writer/performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. She recently took up crochet, because it gives her the temporary illusion of control in this ever-worsening hellscape. Also she’s a Libra.

Attend the tale of weenie odd:

This small mulleted child really is terrible!

And yet Richard tries to do a nice thing for the kid anyway...

Caroline snaps!

Enjoy military school, ya little jerk!

It's simultaneously tame and yet SO MUCH WORSE than we imagined:

This look says it all, really:
