Broads and Books Episode 8: Goin' to the Chapel

This week, we've got weddings. We've got marriages. We've got hamsters in tuxes, Podcat's own show, and a gaggle of sister wives.

This episode has it all, just in time for summer wedding season. 


Amy: Fates and Furies, Lauren Groff

Erin: Seating Arrangements, Maggie Shipstead

Other Books:

Amy: Safekeeping, Abigail Thomas (Memoir)

Erin: We are Never Meeting in Real Life, Samantha Irby (Essays, Humor)


Amy: Kill Bill (Movie)

Erin: Queen of Versailles (Movie)


Erin recommends:

Sometimes I Lie, Alice Feeney

This is a dark, twisty book about two sisters and one husband. Yep, one husband, and that is not even the craziest secret they keep between the two of them. At the book’s center is a marriage and what the term good relationship actually means. Sometimes I Lie is a short thrill ride, and the ending is bonkers and will leave you with FEELINGS. Feel free to reach out after you finish, I know you will want to talk about it.

Broads and Books is a book podcast, a funny podcast, and a feminist podcast. And you'll find we're 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, unachievable reading lists, amazing business ideas, and so much more. We also update you on our mascot, Podcat, and her latest attempts to kill us. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
