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.
