Have you ever wandered around a museum and thought “How on Earth did all of this stuff get here?” You’re not alone.

Throughout its reign, the British Empire stole a lot of stuff. Today those objects are housed in genteel institutions across the UK and the world. They usually come with polite plaques.

This podcast tells the stories about the not-so-polite history behind those looted objects.

In Season Two, Walkley award-winning host Marc Fennell will take you to a temple, a tree, a lab, a paradise island, a crime scene and a stage. You’ll uncover abductions, scandals and a murder investigation.

Episode One out October 20.

Season two of Stuff the British Stole is co-produced with CBC Podcasts.
