This week we're channeling Lizzo, talking about books and pop culture with characters that have been through it (and come out stronger).
Plus, the Broads talk annoyingly delayed outrage, rejections, squirrels, and the trouble with numbers. Heads up: We're recording on a different day, and we're coming in HOT.
Check out all current and past picks at our Bookshop.org store.
Our picks from Broads and Books Episode 113: About Damn Time
Amy: Blow Your House Down, Gina Frangello (Memoir)
Erin: The Nineties, Chuck Klosterman (Nonfiction, Essays)
Amy: Somebody Somewhere (HBO Max)
Erin: Something Was Wrong (Podcast)
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.
