Episode 95: One Way or Another

This week is all about relentless pursuit. Our picks have characters chasing down desires, goals, or even the truth.

Also in this episode, Erin reveals her own dogged pursuits, Amy shows indecisive pursuit can work out, and we describe our sitcom based on a cruise ship. Plus, Ziggy the Podcat makes an appearance.

Listen to "One Way or Another," the relentless song from Blondie and inspiration for this week's theme.

Broads and Books is the funny and feminist book podcast you need in your life! 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.
