From December 15, 1941, “We Hold These Truths,” a dramatic radio broadcast celebrating the Bill of Rights. It’s an hour long, so grab a cup of tea or what have you, and settle into a comfy chair – or put on headphones and head out for a nice long walk, or whatever it is you like to do while getting educated by audio. It’s well worth a listen, I think. (Parental guidance is suggested for young children, for a portion dedicated to terrors the amendments are designed to protect against.)

From the website:

Narrated by James Stewart. Featuring Edward Arnold, Lionel Barrymore, Walter Brennan, Bob Burns, Dane Clark, Walter Huston, Elliott Lewis, Marjorie Main, Edward G. Robinson, Rudy Vallee, and Orson Welles, among others. Not to mention Leopold Stokowski leading the New York Philharmonic through “The Star Spangled Banner.”
