We’re back in your feed to share a project we think you’ll love. It’s a new podcast called “Last Seen,” about the largest unsolved art heist in history. It’s not a Modern Love story, but it is a great story, from the same team that makes the Modern Love podcast.

The heist of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is something like the holy grail of art crime — and remains so even 28 years after it happened. In a little under an hour and a half, two thieves stole 13 irreplaceable artworks from the Boston institution. This podcast will explore why not a single piece has been recovered and if, after all these years, the case could be solved.

You can listen to full episodes online, or subscribe to "Last Seen" on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
