Episode 101: Ring of Fire

This week, we're considering turning to the dark side. Or at least the characters in our picks are.

Plus, we're weighing the morality of accidentally shoplifting, asking Marvel to cast us as villains, and welcoming a Podcat drive-by.

Listen to "Ring of Fire," the song from Johnny Cash that inspired this week's theme.

Broads and Books is the funny and feminist book podcast you need in your life! Each episode 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.
