It was only a matter of time. So this week, we're all about witches.
Along the way, we wonder about pay disparity between witches and warlocks, worry about splinters when riding a broom, and discuss the nutritional value of what's in Erin's cauldron.
And because why not, we dig into Amy's future as a redhead vampire with a bedazzled coffin.
Our picks this week:
Amy: The Master and Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov
Erin: Son of a Witch, Gregory Maguire
Amy: The Roots of Desire, Marian Roach (Nonfiction)
Erin: Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
Amy: Nevertheless She Existed (Podcast)
Erin: Witches of Eastwick (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.
