History Banter Podcast, Episode 33: V for Vendetta (2005) LIVE! w/ Dr. Jennifer Allen and Ahad Hayaud-Din
Two weeks ago, we held our first ever History Banter live event, hosted by the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Richardson, Texas and in conjunction with the Brookhaven College Department of History. We watched the 2005 film adaptation of Alan Moore’s graphic novel, V for Vendetta. The Alamo Drafthouse gave everyone Guy Fawkes masks (image below) and we had a panel following the movie, in which Brad and I were joined by friends-of-the-show Dr. Jennifer Allen and Ahad Hayaud-Din. This is the live recording of the panel discussion, where we discuss the history behind the real Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes copycats, and what this movie can tell us about authoritarianism, fascism, anarchism, terrorism, and Bradism. Not so much the last one…
