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. Was the Florentine Diamond’s disappearance due to bad luck and greed, or did it, The Hope, and Black Orlov curse their owners into misfortune and despair?

Episode 36 – Stealing The Moon



When the first manned mission to the moon camp back to Earth, they brought back samples of the lunar geology. President Richard Nixon ordered a few of these samples to be segmented, encased in lucite, and gifted to the nations of the world. Through a series of strange circumstances involving assassination, government collapse, and a heist at NASA, many of the moon rocks are now 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. A priceless chamber of wall-to-wall amber mosaics, furniture, and ornaments, it adorned a Russian palace for 300 years until the Nazis came along and ruined everything. Typical Nazis. Who was really responsible for the disappearance of the Amber Room, and is it still out there…waiting to be uncovered?
