Updated: Apr 21, 2021

Last chance! Complete our Listener Survey and help us deliver the goods!

Unlike Skee Lo, we don't wish we were taller, or a baller. But we can sure understand wishing things were different. So do the characters in this week's picks.

Along with discussing the natural desire to wish, we're remembering the inanity of The Secret, considering the dangers of dancing, and wanting wax seals. Plus, we've got the superfood in our system this week, so we're HYPED. Hang on tight.

Listen to "I Wish," the song from Skee Lo 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.
