The Farnsworth Invention, a play written by Aaron Sorkin, looks at the history of television. Who should be credited with its invention: small-town, boy genius Philo T. Farnsworth or media mogul David Sarnoff? Ira discusses the play with actors Jimmi Simpson, who plays Farnsworth, Hank Azaria (aka Moe and others on The Simpsons) who plays Sarnoff, and the play's director Des McAnuff.
