Episode 71: Not Ready to Make Nice

This week we're not backing down from a fight, and neither are the characters in our picks.

Plus, we're nursing our grudges, taking on anti-maskers, and declaring value in angry women. And stay till the end to hear us dissect our first negative review.

Listen to "Not Ready to Make Nice," the song from The Chicks that inspired this week's episode.


Our picks this week:


Amy: Under the Rainbow, Celia Laskey

Erin: The Yellow Wallpaper and Other Stories, Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Other Books:

Amy: Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson (Plus: Just Mercy movie and True Justice documentary)

Erin: Daring Greatly, Brene Brown

Pop Culture:

Amy: I Weigh (Podcast)

Erin: RBG (Documentary)



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, check in on our Podcats, and so much more. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
