Speaker: Frank Batavick

In 1938, the Mercury Theater of the Air’s dramatization of H.G. Welles’ War of the Worlds frightened millions, triggered a FCC ruling, became a case study in the power of the media, and is now a Halloween staple. How and why did it work so well? Join Frank Batavick as he plays excerpts from the historic radio program and discusses its continuing power and appeal. This program will be live via Zoom.
