    Wondery Presents: Dr. Death Season 2

    If someone you love is diagnosed with cancer you want them to get the best treatment from the best doctors. In 2013, patients in Michigan thought Farid Fata was that doctor. Between his prestigious education, years of experience and pleasant bedside manner, Fata was everything you could want in a doctor. But he was not who he appeared to be. From Wondery, this is the story of hundreds of patients in Michigan, a doctor, and a poisonous secret.

    Laura Beil, returns with a second season of the award-winning series “Dr Death.”

    What to Listen to Next: Even the Rich

    What to Listen to Next: Even the Rich

    Finished Bunga Bunga and in need of a new podcast? Check out Wondery's Even the Rich. Co-hosts Brooke and Aricia tell stories about some of the greatest family dynasties in history, from the Versaces, to the Royals, and most recently, the Kennedys.

    When Ted Kennedy lost control of his car and ended up in the river on Chappaquiddick Island, he could never have imagined that his entire political career would hang in the balance. But the tragic incident that took the life of his assistant Mary Jo, and his hazy account to authorities called into question his actions that night. Ultimately, this tragedy threw Ted’s presidential ambitions by the wayside and was forever etched into the history of the Kennedy family. Listen to the latest season of Even the Rich today: wondery.fm/bungabungaETR.

Whitney you should be so proud if this!

This show is so well written! Whitney walked the line between humour and serious information in a fresh and interesting way. Only 4 stars because it’s too short! Give me more scandal!

The perfect narator

After reading a few reviews it seems like Whitney as narrator is an acquired taste. Personally, I loved her energy and her humour definitely took the edge off all the cringeworthy moments. I thought her narration style was fresh and as podcast junkie ... it was a pleasant deviation from the traditional “broadcast” voice. I shared this podcast with all my friends and the first them I told them ... super interesting story and you are going to love the narrator!

Guess you will have to listen to it and judge for yourself.

Bunga bunga!

Loved that show. I’ve read in the paper about Berlusconi back in 2000’s but to hear the back story behind the doors.... really good.
