It's a meme, it's a phenomenon, and it's the ultimate creeper anthem! So this week, we're looking at books and pop culture picks that look at unhealthy attachments and obsessions.
Plus, the Broads talk gross dating rituals, relationship showboating on Instagram, and how we would do as stalkers. And much more.
Check out all current and past picks at our Bookshop.org store.
Our picks from Broads and Books Episode 111: Never Gonna Give You Up
Erin: The Other Dr. Gilmer: Two Men, a Murder, and an Unlikely Fight for Justice, Benjamin Gilmer (Nonfiction, True Crime)
Amy: The Afterparty (Apple+)
Erin: Joe vs. Carole (Peacock)
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.
