Episode 84: Liar

Updated: Apr 21, 2021

Liars! Con artists! Frauds! We're talking about it all on this week's episode.

Plus, we're talking punks and hunks, human lie detectors, the lies we tell ourselves, and fun words. And Ziggy the Podcat makes a murderous appearance.

Listen to "Liar," the song by Henry Rollins 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.
