The Boston public radio station WBUR in cooperation with the Boston Globe Newspaper has posted a set of podcasts on the history of the infamous theft at the Gardner Museum in Boston. The theft included a Rembrandt and a Vermeer along with eleven other pieces. They have never been recovered.
While the podcasts sometimes have a breathy eEntertainment quality to them, they are still a lot of fun. The story includes some very colorful players.
As it turns out, one of the suspects had previously attempted to rob the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls. One of the podcasts/episodes (No. 8) focuses on this attempt.
The podcasts are titled “Last Seen” and can be found at this link:
