This week, we're tackling another listener-suggested theme: crime. From Pablo Escobar's Columbia to the IRA's Belfast, from a white Bronco to the Silk Road, our picks are all about criminals doing their thing, and how it impacts the little guy.
Also in this episode, Erin talks Geo Metro crime, Amy reveals her criminal syndicate motto, and we tell the story of the cop who got bit.
Thanks to Andrea for this excellent theme suggestion!
Our picks this week:
Amy: The Fruit of the Drunken Tree, Ingrid Rojas Contreras
Erin: Our Kind of Cruelty, Araminta Hall
Amy: Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland , Patrick Radden Keefe (True Crime, Non-fiction)
Erin: American Kingpin: The Epic Hunt for the Criminal Mastermind Behind the Silk Road, Nick Bilton (True Crime, Non-fiction)
Amy: Believed (Podcast)

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.
