    Episode 6: The End of the Dusty Trail

    We sit down with a man who is so certain that he’s solved Fenn’s poem, he recently published a book divulging the answer. We also meet with a professional treasure hunter (the kind who gets sent to recover historical treasures sunk long ago) to measure the validity of Fenn’s claims. Finally, we evaluate all the professional, pseudo-professional, and obsessive “searcher” theories about Fenn and where his treasure may lie.

    Episode 3: The Art of the Deal

    In 2009, Forrest Fenn’s home was raided by the FBI in connection to his possession of Native American artifacts. This was less than one year prior to the date that Fenn claims he buried the treasure.
