EP 48 - The Tring Feather Heist

In June of 2009, Edwin Rist broke into the British Natural History Museum at Tring and stole 299 bird skins that weren't just worth millions of dollars, they were priceless. This story covers everything from Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace to competitive salmon fly tying, and it is a wild ride from start to finish. The primary source for this podcast is the incredible book "The Feather Thief" by Kurt Wallace Johnson.
