Broads and Books Episode 5: It's a Small World

We're talking strange character connections and crazy-small worlds this week.

Along the way? The Broads get weird, name-checking Keith Morrison, some Trent Reznor, and even Papa Roach. It all makes perfect sense.


Amy: A Visit from the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan

Erin: Anatomy of a Scandal, Sarah Vaughan

Other Books:

Amy: Sour Heart, Jenny Zhang (Short Story collection)

Erin: I'll Be Gone in the Dark, Michelle McNamara (Memoir, True Crime)


Amy: Cloud Atlas (Movie)

Erin: A.P. Bio (TV)


Amy recommends:

Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann

Centered around Manhattan in 1974, and the daredevil tightrope walk across the Twin Towers, this book features characters who are in some way affected and connected by the event. It's a small story for each of them, but a grander one told together.

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, unachievable reading lists, amazing business ideas, 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.
