In this new installment of The Broads Talk Books With, we talk to Kate Hope Day! Her new book, In the Quick, will be an upcoming recommendation from the Broads.
We talked to Kate about her love of Victorian literature, weird Instagram ads and gross dude fans, and writing while being a mother.

Current pop culture obsessions:
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, and so much more. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
