Broads and Books Episode 11: Second Time's a Charm

Sometimes a sequel is actually better than the original!

This week's picks are about the magic that can sometimes happen when you revisit a good thing. Plus, the broads talk fashion trends that could stand to be revisited, and that creepy Doublemint commercial from back in the day.

And Erin evades Podcat's attempt at murder. AGAIN.



Amy: Invasion of the Tearling, Erika Johansen

Erin: The Child, Fiona Barton

Other Books:

Amy: Y: The Last Man, Bryan K. Vaughn (Graphic novel)

Erin: Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Jen Mann (Essays, Humor)

Pop Culture:

Amy: Thor: Ragnarok (Movie)

Erin: Narcos: Mexico (TV)


Amy recommends:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8, Joss Whedon

The show was AMAZING. So is this comic adaptation of what could have been the eighth season. There are multiple volumes, and each gets better than the last, as we explore a world with slayers everywhere.

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.
