About This Show
In the early hours of March 18th, 1990, two thieves posing as police officers were admitted into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. In 81 minutes they stole 13 pieces of artwork, among the paintings stripped from their frames were works by Vermeer, Degas, and Rembrandt.
In this series Tim Pilleri & Lance Reenstierna (of the Missing Maura Murray and Crawlspace podcasts) will dig as deep as possible into the case, theories, and social and economic impact the greatest unsolved art heist of all time had on the community.

Wanted to love this so much ...
The story itself is so fascinating and was really looking forward to listening but the hosts ramble on like late night radio talk back, they interrupt interviews with their theories. Have twice tried to stick with it and finish the series but I'll probably end up buying the book about the heist they plug a fair bit instead. Sadly I lose the will to live after half an hour...
