Listen to the episode:
Well I’d rather get stung by WASPs than poisoned by whatever’s working around here.
Put down the laundry, and meet Aurelien for lunch to discuss satirical thriller novel “The Stepford Wives” (1972) by Ira Levin. Aurelien lays out similarities with classic horror story “The Yellow Wallpaper”, researches the controversial anthropology of Robert Ardrey, and talks deep, dark social fears (and those damn Victorian gender roles).
