Do you believe in UFOs? Alien abductions? In the 1960s, there were a slew of these reports, the most famous being Betty and Barney Hill who claimed they were abducted and experimented on by aliens. Strange Country co-hosts Beth and Kelly explore this phenomena and uncover deep truths about themselves, mainly that Beth has no idea how to say dachshund.
