In an extra-large edition for our 50th podcast episode, we welcome Orson Welles back to the show for three of his visits to Suspense. In the fall of 1943, Welles starred in several episodes of “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills” in a special engagement. He appeared in some of the best thrillers from literature by some of the best authors of the genre, and this week we’ll hear three shows from that run: Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Lost Special” (an AFRS rebroadcast of an episode from September 30, 1943); Agatha Christie’s “Philomel Cottage” (originally aired on CBS on October 7, 1943); and “Lazarus Walks” (an AFRS rebroadcast of an episode from October 19, 1943).
