TMTYR Episode #52: De-Woo it! (Paycheck)

As the first entry in the Summer of PKD, the Pavement Pounders discuss the 1953 short story “Paycheck” and the 2003 film of the same name, starring Ben Affleck.

(This is an effort to economize on precious time, as the three of us will have a difficult time getting together over the summer.)
