It's time for a little Orson Welles here on Roll It, as this episode we're discussing his endlessly fascinating and unique documentary, F for Fake. This is definitely a film that stretches your mind and makes you think about the nature of things like truth, fakes, art, and artists. Welles paints a dazzling picture of how lies and illusions can create truth, and sometimes masterpieces. We try to make as much sense as possible rambling about this film, so tune in and if you haven't already, please watch F for Fake. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us!

This week on the Paranormal Concept we take a look at the influential figure of Orson Welles and follow the proverbial rabbit hole of weird links to do with enigmatic man. From War of the World, Urban Legend and Cursed films have a listen to see how this all ties together.
In this episode we speak with Dr. Antonio Damasio, who is perhaps one of the most influential neuroscientists of the last hundred years. His work has emphasized the role of emotion in cognition, the deep connection between brain and body, and the roots of consciousness in biological systems for maintaining life. The mystery of consciousness is the subject of his latest book, Feeling and Knowing: Making Minds Conscious. Antonio Damasio is the Director of the Brain and Creativity Institute at USC.
In this bonus episode, I'll share my picks for the best Suspense installments starring the legendary Orson Welles. We'll hear him first on a cross-country trip into a nightmare in "The Hitch-Hiker" (originally aired on CBS on September 2, 1942). Then, in a rare Suspense two-parter, Welles plays a scientist whose innovation could bring about the end of the world in "Donovan's Brain" (originally aired on CBS on May 18 and May 25, 1944).
