Have you seen Abducted in Plain Sight?? The Netflix documentary is about a young girl who was abducted -- twice -- by the same family friend in the 1970s in Pocatello. It’s been getting a lot of buzz because the story is just so crazy. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should before our conversation on Wednesday. We’ll be joined by KUER religion podcaster Lee Hale, Utah county prosecutor Lauren Hunt, and SUU film professor Kyle Bishop to talk about just what the heck was going on.

Abducted In Plain Sight is available to stream on Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and other platforms.
