Episode Air Date: November 16, 2014
Film Release Date: March 30, 1984

Was the 1984 film "Romancing the Stone" really a deep dive into the emerging (some would say emerged) modern feminism, with Kathleen Turner's Joan Wilder character coming into her own after a series of misadventures, and setting the tone for strong female characters to follow, or was it just a fun little rom-com-adventure? We think it was...both. But whatever it was, the undeniable chemistry between Turner and Michael Douglas set the stage for a sequel and the War of the Roses. But we'll save those for a different episode. This episode focuses exclusively on the film that began it all.

Oh, and after you listen to the episode, be sure to chime in about whether you think Turner's voice is a turn-on, or just meh.
