Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed J. Reuben Appelman.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with J. Reuben Appelman who is an author, podcast personality, and has been involved on every level of several major films that have appeared on Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Price, and others.
In Part 2 they discuss the prevalence of child abduction attempts in the Detroit Metro area during the 70s, the source of that activity, and the guest and host talked about an abduction attempt they each lived through during the time. It covers much more about this disturbing period.
This is a powerful, personal and important interview.
As noted, “J. Reuben grew up just a few miles from show host Kevin Price and they both share the common story of being among the people riveted and terrified by the child murders that happened in Oakland County, Michigan.  Price lived in Ferndale, Michigan and left the year before the murders happened, but heard stories from friends who lived in constant fear during the mid to late 1970s.  Meanwhile, Appelman’s story hit even closer to home as a child that grew up in Southfield, Michigan.”
This is the second interview in a series.
