17 | Art Heists - please don't burn the art
I'm back with Erin to talk about an exciting subject... art heists! We discuss the biggest unsolved art theft, why the crime is ultimately unrewarding, and our dream job of working for the FBI. If we still haven’t convinced you to return stolen artwork by the end of this episode at least you’ll know to check your humidity levels.

A look at what art heists are probably like in real life. Erin and I went to see American Animals right after recording the podcast. It was so good! If you have a chance to see it, go!
