American hikers Josh Fattal (R) Shane Bauer (C) and his fiancée Sarah Shourd sit in Muscat International airport on September 24, 2011, before flying home to the USA.

On today’s show: we’ll talk with Shane Bauer, Joshua Fattal, and Sarah Shourd—the three Americans who were captured by Iranian forces while they were hiking and were held for two years. Carl Hoffman explains how he uncovered new evidence about the disappearance of Michael Rockefeller in New Guinea in 1961. We’ll look at the never-before-published diaries of George F. Kennan, who devised the policy of containment during the Cold War. Bruce Dancis talks about becoming an anti-war activist in the 1960s—and going to prison for resisting the draft during Vietnam.
