Broads and Books Episode 10: Leverage, Synergy, and Thought Showers

Yes, those words are all horrible. And they reveal this week's theme: The horrors of the workplace. 

These picks will have you nodding along in cringing solidarity. Plus, the broads talk their own personal work horrors, ideal workplaces, and our newest business venture involving gladiator matches. 



Amy: Severance, Ling Ma

Erin: Company, Max Barry

Other Books:

Amy: "I Was a Playboy Bunny," Gloria Steinem (Essay)

Erin: Bad Blood, John Carreyrou (True Crime)

Pop Culture:

Amy: "9 to 5" (Movie)

Erin: "Business Wars" (Podcast)


Erin recommends:

Then We Came to the End, Joshua Ferris.

Humor, office gossip, and office furniture make this read a sure bet to eradicate your own career woes. If you put Michael Scott  into an ad agency – think Mad Men with more modern office décor – you would still not reach the hilarity that Joshua Ferris pours into this book.

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.
