Episode 692: The Graduate (1967) Special Guest: Beverly Gray
Guest Co-Hosts: Keith Gordon, Katharine Coldiron

We wrap up the first of a few Request Months with one from Brian Tessitore, The Graduate. The 1967 Mike Nichols film stars Dustin Hoffman as Benjamin Braddock, the titular graduate. He's adrift after college and falls into an affair with Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), a family friend.

Keith Gordon and Katharine Coldiron join Mike to discuss the seminal film along with homages and the "sequel," Rumor Has It. Beverly Gray, author of Seduced by Mrs. Robinson: How the Graduate Became the Touchstone of a Generation, talks about her work including her time on Death Race 2000.
