Cringey moments - we love them and hate them. And these books and pop culture picks have some of the best stories of cringe around.
Plus, we're considering our own cringey moments, discussing our wise old owls that guide us, and making a last bid for HBO Max sponsorship.
Listen to "Ice Ice Baby," the horrifically cringey song by Vanilla Ice 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.
