More Able Than Kane
Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week as our host, Richard Aldous, speaks with Gabby Morrongiello about what it’s like to cover the Trump Administration before discussing Orson Welles with Colin Fleming.
First, Gabby Morrongiello, a White House reporter for the Washington Examiner, takes a look at President Trump’s fraught relationship with the press, and describes what it’s like to witness one of his famous (or perhaps infamous) pressers from a journalist’s perspective.
Then, Colin Fleming, a contributor to Commentary, Rolling Stone, and NPR’s Weekend Edition, speaks with Richard about some of Orson Welles’s lesser known films. He makes the argument that Welles was a great filmmaker even when you consider his works not named Citizen Kane.
