Episode 33: Monster Mash

Broads and Books Episode 33: Monster Mash

Ghosts, monsters, and all things supernatural are on our minds this week, so our picks are strange, weird, and downright scary.

Along the way, we talk about that time Erin sang Shania Twain under hypnosis, who we'll haunt when we're ghosts, and how Amy will announce her ghostly presence (and be a buddy ghost cop with David Bowie).

If you're not sure what Podcat is saying when she meows over Erin, here's a translation.


Our picks this week:


Amy: The Mere Wife, Maria Dahvana Headley

Erin: Providence, Caroline Kepnes

Other Books:

Amy: The Dark Dark, Samantha Hunt (Short Story Collection)

Erin: Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyami (Young Adult)

Pop Culture:

Amy: Preacher (TV)

Erin: Amityville Horror (Movie)

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, pitch amazing-slash-crackpot business ideas, implicate ourselves in future crimes, 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.
