Episode 120: The Right Stuff

This week, we're wondering how much time we've wasted worrying about being the right stuff for dudes. Our picks take on the male gaze in unique and even horrifying ways.

Plus, we're talking boy bands, Wahlbergs (and Wahlburgers), period pain for men, attracting creeps, and more. And we get a special visit from TWO Podcats.

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.
