Broads and Books Episode 37: Back in My Day

This week, our characters have run out of F's to give. We're talking about curmudgeonly characters, the kind that will defy your norms and yell at you to get off the lawn.

Along the way, we talk Erin's favorite neighborhood curmudgeon, Amy as Cruella Deville with an army of shirtless dudes, and our suspicions that the remaining video stores out there are for sure money laundering operations.

Also: Statler and Waldorf are our our mood board for this episode.


Our picks this week:


Amy: The Last Werewolf, Glen Duncan

Erin: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, Fannie Flagg

Other Books:

Amy: Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen; Pride and Prejudice (2005, Movie)

Erin: Olive Kitteridge, Elizabeth Strout

Pop Culture:

Amy: Living with Yourself (TV)

Erin: Scrubs (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, 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.
