This week, Sean O’Connor returns to talk about another one of his favorite episodes – My Sister, My Sitter. In the episode, Lisa takes up babysitting. She does such a good job for everyone in Springfield that Marge and Homer ask her to babysit Bart. Things don’t end pretty. Sean recounts a gruesome babysitting story of his own. Plus, he talks about what it’s like to be a dad, and why letting other people watch your kids is terrifying. Check out Sean’s work on the “Late Late Show with James Corden” and Comedy Central’s “Hood Adjacent” for which he serves as executive producer and head writer. His latest writing can also be seen on Netflix’s “Hilarity for Charity.”
