Episode 38 – To Catch a Panther



Since the early 2000s, a number of high stakes diamond heists have taken the world’s wealthiest cities by storm.

Yet slowly but surely, a pattern began to emerge, pointing to the largest, anonymous diamond thieving ring in the world. Who are the Pink Panthers? Where did the come from?

Episode 22 – It Belongs in a Museum! The Pages of History



Content Warning: A short, non-descriptive mention of a sexual assault in a historical context.

Because of the efforts of scribes and scholars, we are still able to take a look into the past and know where we came from. But for all of the books that changed history, there are countless others that held knowledge now lost to the ages. Such tomes included: inventions that question what we thought we know of ancient civilization, the true story behind one of the most notorious poets who ever lived, and even a book that shaped the English langage…a book that may have never even existed in the first place! In this episode, Relic and the crew of the Frankenpod examine a few famous titles that you’ll never get to read.

Treasures and Tyrants



Relic will be back in February 2018 with the last half of season 1! Until then, here’s a quick dive into our first season and its thematic arc. This will also serve as a first look towards our final stretch: the lost artifacts of World War II, and Hitler’s schemes to hoard all of the world’s treasures under one roof.


Episode 9 – Crown and Sea



English history is full of notorious monarchs, but few are as hotly debated as King John, a man remembered as both the villain of Robin Hood and signer of Magna Carta. Lesser known is the treasure that King John lost at the end of his reign, a bounty that included the original crown jewels. With insight from our guest narrator, Dom from the U.K., we look into just what happened to King John’s treasure, and whether or not “Bad” King John deserved his epithet.
