What Price, Gloria? – October 16, 1961

Sam is Samantha Stormer, an executive assistant at the National Motor Company in 1961 Detroit. Trapped in a body of a beautiful woman, Sam must endure sexual harassment from his boss, and stop Samantha’s best friend, Gloria, from committing suicide after learning her married husband will never actually leave his wife. Meanwhile, Al struggles with having his best friend having the appearance of a gorgeous knock out.

Sam Fain and Dennis are joined by previous guest hosts Annie Petrusek, Claire Feeney and Jessica Conger to discuss the episode, and how it holds up during our current cultural shift and the #MeToo movement.
