    Presenting: No Place Like Home

    Presenting: No Place Like Home

    Do you remember the first time you watched The Wizard of Oz? Those famous red ruby slippers are some of the most iconic objects in Hollywood history that still bring back nostalgic memories every time they’re seen. They became a rare collector’s item worth millions. In the summer of 2005, a pair was stolen from the Judy Garland Museum in the small town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota. In No Place Like Home, C13Originals, a Cadence13 Studio, teams up with journalist Ariel Ramchandani and editor Seyward Darby for this documentary podcast to investigate a heist that dives into small town suspicions between local cops and the FBI, the fraught relationship between Grand Rapids and its most famous daughter, Judy Garland, and brings listeners inside the peculiar world of Hollywood memorabilia and the market for lost and stolen art. Although the shoes were eventually recovered, there are more questions left than answers. Who stole the shoes and where were they hiding for more than 13 years? No Place Like Home is available now on all podcast platforms.

Mind blowing

This story is so crazy and hits so close to home for me mostly based on locations and time. Jackee is a few years younger then me and our lives are very different. I grew up just 1 hr south East in Port St. Lucie, Fl and then traveled every summer to visit my dad in Billings, Mt then to Hardin, MT. I’m extremely familiar with the 1980’s culture difference between Florida and Montana for a child.
The struggles her and her family went through give me nothing but admiration for her successes.

NO LIE

I listened to RELATIVE UNKNOWN shortly after the last episode came out and I can honestly say it is the best podcast I’ve ever heard. As a janitor on swing shift I listen to about 4 hours of podcasts a night and have been doing so for at least 4 years and this one is still the best. Whoever plays the voice of Butch makes you feel like you’re sitting across from the actual man. NO LIE. You must listen to this one.
