Tom and Dan discuss the radio career of Orson Welles. Clips in this episode range from his 1937 radio adaptation of Les Miserables, right up to the 1951-52 series The Lives of Harry Lime — several episodes of which Orson wrote, and one of which was later adapted for the screenplay of the film Mr. Arkadin.
