The Aftermath: The Kidnapping of Patty Hearst

New Guest Expert! On this week’s Aftermath, Rebecca speaks with author Rachael Hanel about the polarizing case of Patty Hearst and her kidnapping by the SLA in 1974. Author of  Not the Camilla We Knew: One Woman’s Path from Small-town America to the Symbionese Liberation Army, Rachael reminds us of the trauma Patty Hearst was initially subjected to, and reflects on the mystery which still looms large over this fascinating moment in American history. Afterward, Producer Clayton Early stops by to revisit the verdict with Rebecca.
