Broads and Books Episode 43: Holiday. Celebrate.

Take a cue from Madonna and celebrate.

We're talking about all kinds of holidays this week, with picks that center around this time of year. Along the way, Amy and Erin remember the highs and lows of past holidays, practice their own Schweddy balls routine, and sing the praises of Alan Rickman.

Plus: Here's Amy's favorite holiday music, courtesy of the best limo driver ever, Argyle.


Our picks this week:


Amy: Landline, Rainbow Rowell

Erin: The Usual Santas: A Soho Crime Holiday Anthology

Other Books:

Amy: Punk Rock Jesus, Sean Gordon Murphy (Graphic novel)

Erin: P.S. Your Cat is Dead, James Kirkwood Jr (Play, Humor)

Pop Culture:

Amy: Die Hard (Movie)

Erin: Amazing Peace: A Christmas Poem (Storybook and CD; YouTube)

PLUS the random-ass Snape/Harry Potter video Erin mentions

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.
