WBUR’s Last Seen podcast returns in November 2022 with a surprising collection of mysteries about unexpected people, places and things that have all gone ... missing.
From the fallout of a murder in Boston’s Haitian community, to the hunt for Quebec’s most famous pie, the quest for a berried treasure, and the search for a real life Willy Wonka, stay tuned for all new mysteries, from tenacious public radio storytellers, coming in Season 3 of Last Seen.
Millions of listeners tuned into the first season of Last Seen for the true-crime investigation of the most valuable — and confounding — art heist in history: the theft of 13 irreplaceable artworks from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. The Boston Globe teamed up with WBUR to ask why, 28 years later, this still unsolved crime exerts its irresistible pull.
In Season 2, we brought together a diversity of stories and storytellers from around the globe to explore the human experience through the lens of things that aren’t there — mysterious tales of obsession, injustice, lies, and levity that aspire to elevate and bend the genre of true crime. A community theater con-man. A planet no one can find. An urn containing a stranger’s ashes. And that’s just the beginning. Mysterious tales about the esoteric and the obvious, from our own backyard, to the outer edges of the solar system.
Season 3 continues our exploration of what missing something means, why we keep searching, and whether we can — or even should — find what we’re looking for.
