Episode 73: The Sign

This week, we're looking at signs. Our books have characters inspecting red flags, blowing past yellow lights, and claiming some things are in the green.

Plus, Erin offers a tiered system of warning signs, Amy's gut instinct is driven by Reese's Pieces, and both Broads contemplate a reality show of fake psychic nonsense.

Listen to "The Sign," the song from Ace of Base that inspired this week's episode.

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.
