This week, our picks are leading from the heart. Plus, the Broads kick off a new season of themes, come down hard on pumpkin spice, consider our one-hit wonders, lament how our bodies betray us, and consider how ethics and emotion are weaponized.
Our picks from Broads and Books Episode 121: Groove is in the Heart
Amy: Keen, Erin Stalcup (Novella)
Erin: I, Parrot, Deb Olin Unferth (Graphic Novel)
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.
