Heist with Michael Caine

Available on Audible / Podcasts

Michael Caine made a mark in the world of high-crime drama early on with The Italian Job—the 1969 original—in which he led a group of British misfits on a mission to steal four-million dollars in gold from an armored car in Turin—in a trio of Mini Coopers, no less. Now the Oscar-winning actor is at it again, this time narrating a six-part podcast series about history’s most audacious real-life big-money heists. First up: Antwerp, 2003, when thieves managed to break into one of the world’s most secure vaults—bypassing infrared lasers, CCTV cameras, magnetic sensors, and steel doors—and snatch a haul of diamonds. Other highlights include America’s largest bank burglary and a daring rare-book theft. —J.V.
