Episode 08: Alexis Stephens on feminism & class in Katherine Hepburn movies

The writer Alexis Stephens joins Annie to talk about the charming and surprisingly forward-thinking movies of Katherine Hepburn, in particular THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, ADAM'S RIB, WOMAN OF THE YEAR, and GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER?

Music is the Cure's "Plainsong" and Blood Orange's "Chamakay."
