Unlike Skee Lo, we don't wish we were taller, or a baller. But we can sure understand wishing things were different. So do the characters in this week's picks.


Along with discussing the natural desire to wish, we're remembering the inanity of The Secret, considering the dangers of dancing, and wanting wax seals. Plus, we've got the superfood in our system this week, so we're HYPED. Hang on tight.


Listen to "I Wish," the song from Skee Lo that inspired this week's episode.

Broads and Books is a book podcast. A funny podcast. A feminist podcast. And one of the BEST podcasts. Each week Amy and Erin choose a unique theme. Then we choose two fiction books, two other genre books (short story collections, memoir, non-fiction, true crime, poetry, etc.), and two pop culture picks based on that theme. We surprise each other with our picks, talk about why we like them, and give you unexpected recommendations for every reading taste. Along the way, we share embarrassing stories, pitch amazing-slash-crackpot business ideas, implicate ourselves in future crimes, check in on our Podcats, and so much more. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.

Why can't we stop chasing stuff? Our picks this week are all about the highs and lows of chasing answers, knowledge, looks, and even monsters.


Plus, the Broads are talking about the things they've chased and let go, examining what intuition really is, and talking about the perils and potential ways out of a bookhole.


Listen to "Chasing Pavements," the song from Adele that inspired this week's episode.

We're finally in 2021! And while we're keeping our expectations very low, we are thinking about things we can let go of in the new year. So our picks this week are all about what to hold on to, and what to let go.


Plus, the Broads are assessing our bad habits, considering what habits sound attractive, and reminding listeners to ignore all the stupid diet ads this week (and read our anti-diet reading list).
