This time out, the Pavement Pounders review the 1969 Nebula Award-winning novella A Boy and His Dog, by Harlan Ellison, and the 1975 Hugo-winning film adaptation of the same name.
We did it so you don’t have to. This one comes with a content warning: If you’re uncomfortable with a story involving a lot of language and discussion about rape and sexuality, you might want to give the story a miss. The film has far less language but a fair bit of nudity. So you can just tune into our discussion and save yourself the trouble.
Special Thanks to Emily for letting us dirty your dishes and poop on your floor.
