Episode 54: Cult of Personality

This week we're talking about cult classics, a theme idea suggested by our amazing listener, Kaileah!

We're also starting a new way of naming our episodes. And this week's name comes from "Cult of Personality," the song from the men who knew how to make 1980s neon unitards werk: Living Colour.

Also in the episode, we're talking about Amy's school for nerds and terrible taste in boots, Erin's love of khakis, and why internet trolls should learn to read. Also, we're pretty convinced the Broads and Books studio has a new ghost.

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!
