Radio Lab: War of the Worlds November 10, 2008

In its November 4, 2008 broadcast, and in honor of the 70th anniversary of the classic Orson Welles radio play about martians invading New Jersey, Radio Lab asks: why did people believe it was really happening? And why has this stunt continued to fool people since? From Santiago, Chile to Buffalo, New York to a particularly disastrous evening in Quito, Ecuador.

NOTE: This is a rebroadcast of the Season 4 War of the Worlds episode, taped live at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul.
