We’re popping into your feed for a second time this week to tell you about a new podcast from WBUR and The Boston Globe — “Last Seen.” It tells the story of the largest unsolved art heist in history.

The 1990 heist of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston is 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 works of art from the institution. This podcast explores why not a single piece has been recovered and if, after all these years, the case can be solved.

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