"The Hitch-hiker" from the OTR show Suspense

From the Buck Benny Podcast. The first of his new season. This is one of the best radio scripts to have been produced. Starring Orson Welles, it is the story of a man driving across country, bedeviled by an always rain drenched hitch-hiker that ominously seems to outpace his drive across the deserts of the Southwest. The terror builds until we find the explanation. Lucille Fletcher's story was produced several times, including this 1942, best rendition. It was also adapted by Rod Serling for the Twilight Zone
