Publisher's Summary

Have you ever thought about disappearing? We'll explore how people do it. We start with an expert: Frank Ahearn. His new book is How to Disappear: Erase Your Digital Footprint, Leave Fake Trails, and Vanish Without a Trace. He's a former skip tracer, and tells Steve Paulson how that works.

Next, if you really want to know how to disappear, you might want to talk to the U.S. Marshall Service, which runs the Federal Witness Protection Program. Gerald Shur has just written a book about its founding: WITSEC: Inside the Federal Witness Protection Program. He tells Jim Fleming how he got it started. Keren David is a young adult author who has imagined just what that kind of life might mean. Her novel When I Was Joe chronicles the life of a 14-year-old boy who's living it. She tells Anne Strainchamps about it. And optical physicists at the Imperial College in London have created blueprints for the perfect hiding place. Paul Kinsler, one of the study's authors, explains to Steve Paulson how they carved a hole out of space-time.

Finally, David Bond got scared when he received a letter from the government saying they'd lost his newborn daughter's data. If they could lose that, he thought, what else might they lose? He decided to see if he could disappear himself, and put together a film called Erasing David. He tells Jim Fleming what happened. [Broadcast date: February 18, 2011]
