Posted on : Oct-24-2009 | By : maggie | In : Blog Post


Video from the last BSitP is up! In it, Neil Marsh talks to us about the panic of 1938 when Orson Wells’s radio production and putting on that same production today (Oct. 29-31 at the Somerville Theatre, tickets are on sale now).

Also, Travis announces more details of a Halloween live haunted site investigation by Granite State Skeptics. On Twitter as @GSSkeptics

And we let the cat out of the bag about our very very special guest next month… George Hrab! That’s right, folks. The skeptical singer/songwriter/humorist and dapper dresser himself will be joining us for November’s BSitP. If you didn’t get to TAM or NECSS to see him (or if you did), don’t miss it!

Now, on to the video:

Or watch on our Vimeo channel.

For their annual Halloween show, the Post-Meridian Radio Players will be putting on The Big Broadcast of 1938, (Oct 29-31 at Somerville Theatre) part of which will be a Boston-based adaptation of the classic Orson Welles radio drama, The War of the Worlds. Neil Marsh talks about both Welles’s controversial, panic-inspiring broadcast as well as the PMRP’s adaptation. (BS’s own Josh Nicholson is in the production, so don’t miss it!)
