This week we're talking about religion: the highs, the lows, the culty-cults, and the magnificent things books do with it.
Plus, Amy welcomes new broads to the studio, Erin describes her ideal church, and we wonder how anyone can pretend to be infallible. We're coming in HOT.
Listen to "My Church" by Maren Morris, the song that inspired this week's episode.
Our picks this week:
Erin: Educated, Tara Westover
Amy: The Leftovers (TV, HBO)
Erin: The Keepers (TV, Netflix)
Broads and Books is a book podcast. A funny podcast. A feminist podcast. And 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. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
