Broads and Books Episode 1: Feels Like the First Time

Have we put that song in your head? Good. Because it’s the first time we’re offering you some badass recommendations.

Also? Our picks are all about firsts. Debut authors, first books, first forays into different genres: for our fiction, other books, and pop culture picks, it does feel like the first time.



Amy: The Marriage of a Thousand Lies, SJ Sindu

Erin: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Taylor Jenkins Reid

Other Genre picks:

Amy: Friday Black, Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah (Short story collection)

Erin: Barrel Fever, David Sedaris (Short stories, essays, humor)

Pop Culture picks:

Amy: “The Lobster” (Movie)

Erin: “Criminal” (True Crime Podcast)


Amy recommends:

Spaceman of Bohemia, Jaroslav Kalfar

The first Czech astronaut heads off towards Venus, in what may be a rescue mission for humanity. But after 12 weeks in isolation, he starts talking to a giant spider with luscious red lips. Who reads minds. Who may or may not exist. The book dives into what it means to be human, and takes readers on an insanely bonkers ride. It's the first novel from Kalfar, and we can't wait to read more.

Broads and Books is a book podcast, a funny podcast, and a feminist podcast. And you'll find we're 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, unachievable reading lists, amazing business ideas, and so much more. We also update you on our mascot, Podcat, and her latest attempts to kill us. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
