Episode 99: Somebody That I Used to Know

Updated: Oct 25, 2021

This week, we're looking at change. How characters evolve, how they promise not to change (and fail): our fiction, nonfiction, and pop culture picks point the way.

Also in this episode, Erin channels Cardi B, Amy plans Ziggy the Podcat's influencer future, and we engage with harem pants.

Listen to "Somebody That I Used to Know," the song from Gotye and Kimbra that inspired this week's theme.

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