Operation BirdSeed - Heists
A Hint of Fiction
When we think of heists the idea of intricate pieces of a puzzle working together to steal something valuable or rare often come to mind, romanticized by movies like The Italian Job or Oceans 11. The truth behind real life heists are never as glamorous or sophisticated, or are they?    In today’s episode, an act of terrorism almost destroys one of Earth’s survival plans, an expedition goes in search of an elusive bird for massive profits and two thieves escape a museum and are never heard from again. One of these stories isn’t true, can you figure out which one?    **********************Spoilers Ahead********************   Ecoterrorism at Svladbard Bank: Written by William Acker Trans-Saharan Ostrich Heist: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/great-ostrich-heist Isabella Gardner Museum Heist: https://www.gardnermuseum.org/organization/theft
