Our heroes thought it would be fun to review the new Fahrenheit 451 HBO movie, which is something they will do, assuming it’s not too HBOy. But in order to justify doing that, they had to review the book, which they didn’t particularly have fond memories of. But it may or may not have held up better than they remembered. Listen!
