Take a look at Katie’s favourites

Podfolio founders Penny, Katie and Sam have picked a selection of their favourite podcasts, videos and articles.  This is Katie’s selection of her favourites.

Katie says ‘Last Seen is one of those podcasts that showcases the best of True Crime and Investigative Journalism.  It’s a look into the most valuable and confounding art heist in history and, I promise you, that even if are not interested in art, you will be hooked!  Wind of Change is another podcast with a surprising subject – could the massive hit by the Scorpions actually have been written by the CIA to fight communism?  If you are looking for some inspiration, then The Power Hour with Adrienne Herbert could be just what you need.  Her positivity, optimism and motivation are infectious.’

Last Seen

(35 mins)

If you like true crime, but are fed up with listening about murder and violence – this could be for you.  It tells the story of the most valuable — and confounding — art heist in history: In 1990, 13 artworks were stolen from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Twenty-eight years later, not a single piece in a haul worth half a billion dollars has surfaced. The art, and the thieves who made off with it, remain at large. With first-ever interviews, unprecedented access, and more than a year of investigative reporting, “Last Seen” takes us into the biggest unsolved art heist in history. A joint production from WBUR and The Boston Globe.

We start at Episode 1: ’81 Minutes’
