It remains the most valuable — and confounding — art heist in history: 13 artworks stolen from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Twenty-eight years later, not a single piece in a haul worth half a billion dollars has surfaced. The art, and the thieves who made off with it, remain at large. With first-ever interviews, unprecedented access, and more than a year of investigative reporting, "Last Seen" takes us into the biggest unsolved art heist in history. A joint production from WBUR and The Boston Globe.

Stick to the Gardener

There is so much you could go into on the gardener providing deeper details but yet it switched over. The review is for those first episodes and they were amazing. Didn’t listen after because my interest were specifically to the heist. Please put more out there for listening.

A disappointing genre of podcast

It’s hard to believe that Wondery created both “Dr. Death,” one of the smartest and most sophisticated podcasts ever, and this horrible, exercise in pure tedium. When Wondery teams up with real journalists and produces a documentary style podcast with interviews, archival clips, and narration, they can do good work. “Man In The Window” is another example of their stronger productions. But this style of podcast, characterized by excessive dependence on narration and bad, narrated, recreation of dialog, is just a total nightmare. I don’t know how anyone gets through stories of this type. Just not for me.
