In this episode, we learn about how the world’s smallest water lily was stolen from The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 2014. We speak to those closest to the crime to hear their stories of what happened that day and their theories on the identity of the thief. We look forward to the future of this species, which is relatively bright, and the future of life on this planet, which is not.
