Broads and Books Episode 18: Church Giggles

This week, our picks will have you laughing and crying. Maybe even peeing. Like church giggles, these books and pop culture glories celebrate the inappropriate, the mistimed, and the DGAF reactions. 

Also in this episode, Amy and Erin celebrate their own talent for inappropriate reactions, toss around ideas for a theme song, and reveal their plans for becoming besties with the authors we've chosen. Light stalking is cool, right? 


Our picks this week:

Fiction Books:

Amy AND Erin: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman

Other Books:

Amy: Yes Please, Amy Poehler (Memoir)

Erin: I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling with Villains (Real and Imagined), Chuck Klosterman (Essays)

Pop Culture:

Amy: Dead to Me (TV)

Erin: The Good Place (TV)

Broads and Books is a book podcast, a funny podcast, and a feminist podcast. And you'll find we're one of the best podcasts. Each week 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, unachievable reading lists, amazing business ideas, and so much more. We also update you on our mascot, Podcat, and her latest attempts to kill us. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
