Special guest, professor, podcaster, and prolific author Karen Tongson joins Anita and Kat for episode five of our “Cyberpunk Summer” series, where we are discussing the 1990 sci-fi action film Total Recall, from director Paul Verhoeven. Based on Philip K. Dick’s 1966 short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,” the movie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a construction worker who receives implanted memories of his time working as a spy on Mars—or is he a Martian spy whose memories of life as a construction worker were implanted?
