Episode 42 – Facets of Evil



The “cursed jewel” is a pop cultural trope with a very complicated history–the The Hope Diamond being the most famous example. Some of these dark gems have also gone missing.

Episode 1 – Shattered Amber



The Amber Room was once considered the eighth wonder of the world, and a symbol of peace between two of Europe’s most powerful nations.
