In the second season of Verified, Host Natasha Del Toro and the Verified team again ask tough questions about whom we trust and why. This time, they’re investigating whether a group of women developed ovarian cancer from dusting their bodies with Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder—an iconic brand associated with innocence and comfort since the 1800s. One woman's mysterious illness snowballs into thousands of court cases, claiming that baby powder is to blame for their cancer. Verified: Dust Up is the story of a trusted brand’s fight to convince consumers and regulators that baby powder is safe while minimizing the work of the scientists who claim it is not. Verified follows this decades-long journey to ask: Could a product so many of us have in our medicine cabinets be putting us at risk?

Binge worthy

I am binging this podcast and highly recommend it. Though the host is not the journalist who did the story, she is doing a great job telling it and paying tribute to the actual journalists.

I am deducting one star since I am listening from Europe and I can’t access the fotos you can get by text message :( pls think also about the international listeners!

Still great job!
