Have You Listened to the “Missed Fortune” Podcast? (My Thoughts)

Last week I binge-listened to a podcast for the first time in years.

I love treasure-hunting stories: Indiana Jones, Ready Player One, The Goonies, National Treasure, etc. But they’re all fictional. Missed Fortune covers a real-life treasure hunt.

Here’s the description: “When Forrest Fenn hid a chest full of gold, sapphires, and rubies somewhere in the Rocky Mountains in 2010, he tapped into something deep. It was like the American Dream reduced to its essence—an equal-opportunity quest for a small fortune. What seemed at first like a harmless poem containing nine treasure clues sent thousands on a journey of obsession and desperation. One searcher—Darrell Seyler—gave everything.”

Every episode of Missed Fortune is riveting. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time, partially because journalist Peter Frick-Wright is there in person for many of the attempts to find Fenn’s treasure.

I really don’t want to spoil anything, as there are plenty of twists and turns, and I’m not even 100% sure that the podcast is complete. It’s a great ride, though, and I highly recommend checking it out.

Have you binge-listened to any podcasts, specifically those that tell a story? Let me know in the comments below!
