Missing in Alaska is a deep dive into the mysterious disappearance of Congressmen Hale Boggs and Nick Begich, whose plane vanished in Alaska in 1972. Despite the largest search in American history, no sign of the men ever surfaced. Officials blamed ice, and a nation consumed with Watergate and Vietnam quickly moved on. Two decades later, a murderer and bomber with mafia ties made a startling claim to the F.B.I.: The plane was bombed. Was he lying? Journalist Jon Walczak, who has investigated the case since 2011, travels from Arizona to the Arctic Circle trying to uncover the truth.

Loved It

Great podcast for any tru crime fan. Loved the narrative and host was not bad but I just think the show was really well thought out and put together. Looking forward to what this team puts out next

Riveting!

Awesome podcast that will leave you yearning for the truth. A must listen! Great story telling by Jon. Missing on 9/11 is just as good.

Obsessed

I think this may be my favorite podcast of all time. I’m having a second listen through now, but the storytelling is great. The way John can paint pictures of not only the scenery but the people involved, really struck me. The historical aspect is also very fascinating. It’s definitely worth a listen (or two or three)
