Ep317: Late Screening: The CITIZEN KANE of Podcasts

Today, The Kicking the Seat Podcast and Cole Rush of ColeTries.com return with another edition of "Late Screening", which centers on one of the most important films of all time, Orson Welles' 1941 masterpiece, Citizen Kane! Can you ever really know someone? That is the question at the heart of this story about Charles Foster Kane (Welles), an ambitious young newspaper magnate whose quest for power leaves a hollow legacy of opulence in its wake. Kane's deathbed utterance of the word "rosebud" leads to a grand puzzle comprised of interviews and time-skipping flashbacks that changed the way people made and interacted with the movies.

Ian and Cole dive into Citizen Kane's significance as a work of art and its prescience in setting the table for modern media. Also, Ian provides a bit of background on the film's troubled release and lasting legacy.

Episode 317 is a declaration of principles!
