Educating [Geeks] S3 E08 – Mad Max & The Road Warrior


To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the U.S. release of Mad Max and the opening of Fury Road this summer, the hosts got together to discuss George Miller’s Mad Max and The Road Warrior.

Megan wonders if the writers of Mad Max forgot about the baby and gives one of the Road Warrior characters a new name. Alice is surprised by how much she enjoyed watching Mad Max this time around and finds herself stuck in nostalgia land again for The Road Warrior. Krissy identifies the one scene she liked in Mad Max and declares she’d like to open the post-apocalyptic emporium. She closes out the podcast with the reading of some beat poetry that cannot be missed.

*SPOILER ALERT* — We give plot synopses and other spoilers during the podcast. Watch both Mad Max and The Road Warrior first if you want to remain spoiler-free.

The Post-Apocalyptic Emporium will be coming out on Wednesday May 20th and the E[G] Drinking Game rules will drop on Friday May 22nd.
