Bonus! The Broads' Favorite Things

Hey listeners! Take a few minutes to tell us what you think about the podcast. Complete our Broads and Books Listener Survey, and you'll help us deliver the goods!

While 2020 was mostly trash, it did give us some interesting moments, renewed hobbies, and even some personal and professional wins.

So this week we're counting down our favorite things from the year. And we're crowning our favorite novels and other genre books!

Some of our favorites that you can view or buy:

Food Factory


GoPlus 2 in 1 folding treadmill (walking pad)

Montague Island Mysteries (logic puzzles)

The Broads Talk Books With (author conversations)

KISS Fake Nails

Cross stitch patterns

Dig Me Out (Amy's book, coming out October 2021)

Would You Rather (conversation book)

Our favorite books of the year:

Amy: The Prettiest Star, Carter Sickels ; Tomboyland, Melissa Faliveno

Erin: Imperfect Women, Araminta Hall ; Solutions and Other Problems, Allie Brosh



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.
