In Episode #23, the Pavement Pounders are joined by Emily (James’s better half) to discuss Ira Levin’s 1972 novel The Stepford Wives and its two film adaptations, from 1975 and 2004.
Big thanks to Emily for suggesting the topic, and to Roger at TheGeekLikes.com for seconding it.

1970s boringness discussed! 2000s incoherence explored! Serious, serious hotness mismatches panned!
