Anyone remember a NPR/PRI 'search for a baby sitter' story?

NPR or PRI story- About a year ago, I heard a story in which the narrator was attempting to find his long lost baby sitter- a woman named Susan or Sharon?! It seemed like a TAL type story but I don't believe it was Ira Glass. Sadly I missed the ending and have been searching for it ever since. Has anyone heard of the story?

Is the mixtape episode of This American Life available anywhere online?

Is the mixtape episode of This American Life available anywhere online? I think it was done by Sarah Vowell, I remember hearing it sometime before 2003, and probably much before. But it doesn't appear on the show's archives. Am I going crazy? Maybe it wasn't TAL but I'm almost positive... Please help! [more inside]
