Episode 482: F for Fake (1973)

Special Guest: Matthew Asprey Gear
Guest Co-Hosts: Peter Flynn, Spencer Parsons

F for Fake, the 1973 essay film from Orson Welles is a story of art forgery, the phony autobiography of Howard Hughes, and quite a bit of sleight of hand from our humble narrator, Mr. Welles himself.

Peter Flynn and Spencer Parsons join Mike to discuss hoaxes, magic tricks, and the power of editing.
