We are back with a new format and a new direction! Join Adolfo Acosta and new co-host Mark Espinosa as we discuss, arguably, the greatest film of all time: CITIZEN KANE!

On this show:
• How did we first experience the film?
• The pros and cons of Laserdisc
• How did Orson Welles get into Hollywood, including a discussion on the War of the Worlds Broadcast
• Discussions on both THE BATTLE OVER CITIZEN KANE and RKO 281
• If you’re Orson Welles, how do you top CITIZEN KANE?
• The similarities between Charles Foster Kane and William Randolph Hearst
• The brilliance of the narrative device and how innovative it was
• Gregg Toland’s gorgeous cinematography
• Rosebud: What does it symbolize and does it matter?
• The greatest dirty joke in movie history
• The similarities between CITIZEN KANE and THE INTERVIEW. (Yes, we make a connection!)
• How did Hearst blackmail the Hollywood studios to almost kill CITIZEN KANE
• What happened to Welles post-KANE?
• How did the film, after its initial box office failure, become to be regarded as the greatest film of all time?
•What other box office bombs of the modern era could potentially be considered a classic in 40 years?
• Orson Welles as Jesus?
• And much more!

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
