Help me find this abduction story!

A few years ago, I heard a segment on NPR/Seattle Public Radio about two men who claimed to have been abducted by aliens some number of years ago. I'm not sure if it was a This American Life story (but I don't think it was based on what I found of the show archives), a NPR story, or a Seattle Public Radio story. I am trying to find a recording of that piece now and/or more information about the story it covered.

I don't remember all the details, but here are the ones that I do recall:
-Two men claimed to be abducted some number of years ago while out camping (maybe in a row boat or something when the abduction actually happened?)
-They couldn't really remember it for years
-One of them was some kind of artist, and he eventually started finding himself compulsively sculpting strange figures that he ultimately realized were the figures of the aliens
-One or both of them recounted their abduction experience under hypnosis
-They convinced many people that there experiences were real
Does anyone know the names of the guys involved, have a link to the story or recording of the piece? Thanks for any info you have about this!
