Why can't we stop chasing stuff? Our picks this week are all about the highs and lows of chasing answers, knowledge, looks, and even monsters.
Plus, the Broads are talking about the things they've chased and let go, examining what intuition really is, and talking about the perils and potential ways out of a bookhole.

Erin: These Women, Ivy Pochoda
Amy: To Be Taught, If Fortunate, Becky Chambers (Novella)

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.
