Broads and Books Episode 19: She's the Boss

This week, we're talking women in charge. Women leading. Women DOING THE DAMN THING. Our books and pop culture picks celebrate what happens when women take over.

Also in this episode, Erin reveals her plans for a massive company takeover (with Amy leading the corporate espionage), how emotional intelligence gets a bad rap, why work-life balance is a stupid myth, and the power of mistakes and failure. And of course, our latest criminal ideas that will incriminate us someday.


Our picks this week:

Fiction Books:

Amy: Parable of the Sower, Octavia Butler

Erin: The Mothers, Brit Bennett

Other Books:

Amy: All the Single Ladies, Rebecca Traister (Non-fiction)

Erin: Mistakes I Made at Work, Jessica Bacal (Essays)

Pop Culture:

Amy: Pose (TV)

Erin: Younger (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.
