This week, she's working hard for that money. Women in our picks are knocking down walls and kicking through doors to get paid and demand respect.

Plus, we're talking about our colorful work histories on landlines, cultivating covens of feral cats, and considering the benefits of sister wives.

And, don't forget to listen to the song that gave us our title, "She Works Hard for the Money" by Donna Summer.

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.
