Broads and Books Episode 38: Truth Bomb

This week, we are hitting you hard with some TRUTH. Whether it's fictional retellings of stories we thought we knew, nonfiction dives into a misrepresented past, or some multimedia revisionist history, we got it.

Along the way, we talk about who Amy would catfish, Erin's alter ego, and how our faces just won't support that damn pixie cut.


Our picks this week:


Amy: Circe, Madeline Miller

Erin: The American Wife, Curtis Sittenfeld

Other Books:

Amy: A Woman of No Importance, Sonia Purnell (Nonfiction)

Erin: Fatal Charms and Other Tales of Today/The Mansions of Limbo, Dominick Dunne (Nonfiction)

Pop Culture:

Amy: Fosse/Verdon (TV)

Erin: Swindled (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, 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.
