Educating [Geeks] S4 E11 – Fahrenheit 451

The geek hosts were joined by guest host Tanya Gouchenour to discuss François Truffaut’s film Fahrenheit 451 which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The group discuss Montag’s character development, Julie Christie’s dual role, the role of reading in empathy, what books they would memorize and, yes, they make a “that’s what he said” joke.

*SPOILER ALERT* We talk about the film in its entirety so if you don’t want spoilers watch the film and/or read the book first.
