Episode 51: For Better, For Worse

Broads and Books - A book podcast, a funny podcast, a feminist podcast, new podcast 2019

This week, we're talking about relationships testing the boundaries of "for worse." It's time for relationships gone bad.

Along the way, we rethink classic love stories, wonder at our own bride prices back in ye olden days, and consider the circumstances where Amy might marry (hint: it's got something to do with her favorite performer).

Live in or near Iowa? Come us see us LIVE AND IN PERSON at the Des Moines Book Festival on March 28. Plus, submit your questions to the Broads for the chance at a live answer!

Other Books:
