On this episode: Zak, Jamilah and Elizabeth help a listener who’s having trouble securing a babysitter for their toddler… and starting to resign themselves to just not going anywhere. We’ll talk about what might be causing the end of the teenage babysitter, and some childcare solutions that might be worth trying instead. We’ll also share a round of recommendations — and then, for Slate Plus, we’ll share some memories of what it was like to be babysat, all those years ago.  Elizabeth recommends: Solar Eclipse Glasses; NASA Solar Eclipse Resources  Zak recommends: Ninja Classes Jamilah recommends: Quiet On Set on MAX Join us on Facebook and email us at to ask us new questions, tell us what you thought of today’s show, and give us ideas about what we should talk about in future episodes.
