This week we're talking summer: summer reads, summer rites, summer sweat and grossness. It's a mixed bag for the Broads.
Plus, we detail our riders for a boat trip, declare 'beach reads' a stupid category, and heap praise yet again on public libraries for their summer programs. We stay on theme.
Check out all current and past picks at our Bookshop.org store.
Listen to "Cruel Summer," the song from Bananarama 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.
