Episode 76: Common People

We're just common people, doing common reading some incredible books that capture what it's like.

Plus, we're brainstorming Amy's political campaign to capture the common people, theorizing what Erin would do in a hostage situation, and examining what Goop and Moon Juice do to shame common people.

Listen to "Common People" the song from Pulp 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.
