It seems that fans of true crime will never run out of content to binge on. Last Seen is a true-crime podcast about the most valuable — and confounding — art heist in history: the theft of 13 irreplaceable artworks from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. WBUR and The Boston Globe have joined forces to ask why, 28 years later, this still unsolved crime exerts its irresistible pull. With a $10 million reward on offer, how is it that not even a single piece in a haul estimated to be worth half a billion dollars has surfaced? With first-ever interviews, unprecedented access and over a year of investigative reporting, Last Seen takes us inside the ongoing effort to bring back the jewels of the Gardner collection.

Panoply’s latest fiction offering is a thriller starring the voice talent of Star War’s Kelly Marie Tran. Passenger List is about a plane that disappears mid-flight over the Atlantic between London and New York.

Each episode of this mystery thriller focuses on one of the passengers on board and begins with a piece of “found material” recorded in the moments before the plane took off.
