Broads and Books Episode 39: Friendsgiving

We're talking chosen families in this week's picks, the kind that may not be related by blood, but who just GET YOU.

Along the way we talk about about the weird families on Amy's childhood street, how Erin wants nothing to do with your boxed DNA kits, and how dentists might be hiding something real shady.


Our picks this week:


Amy: The Strange Case of the Alchemist's Daughter, Theodora Goss

Erin: Normal People, Sally Rooney

Other Books:

Amy: Alex + Ada, Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn (Graphic Novel)

Erin: What My Mother and I Don't Talk About, Michele Filgate (Essay Collection)

Pop Culture:

Amy: The Bright Sessions (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.
