Episode 43 – A Cure for Death



During the Age of Exploration (Colonization), the Spanish invaded the “New World”, in search of gold and spices. But the conquest was also driven by more outlandish desires: for hundreds of years, legends told of a mysterious spring of eternal life that always existed just outside the margins of the known world. And in the early 1500s, conquistador Ponce De Leon went off in search for it…or did he?

Episode 24 – Yamashita’s Gold



During World War II, the Japanese amassed their hoard of stolen wealth primarily on the Philippine island of Luzon. After the war, rumors began to emerge that a general by the name of Tomoyuki Yamashita had buried most of the loot in unspecified locations.

Episode 5 – The Ballad of Lasseter’s Gold



In 1931, a gentleman named Harold Bell Lasseter informed the Australian Worker’s union that he’d discovered a seven-miles-long vein of gold in the outback. An expedition was mounted to survey what was possibly one of the largest gold finds in history. But after the quest ended in disaster, the truth behind Lasseter’s Reef remains questionable. Who was Harold Lasseter? Did his reef exist?
