    Introducing - Do No Harm

    Introducing - Do No Harm

    Imagine you’re a parent, nervously pacing around your injured child's hospital room. A doctor begins asking you question after question about how your kid got hurt. You begin to realize that they are asking about your involvement in the accident. Where were you when he fell? How did he actually fall?

    And then, you slowly start to see that they think you hurt your child intentionally.

    Do No Harm is the terrifying true story of a family torn apart by the system that was supposed to protect them. Investigative reporter Mike Hixenbaugh chronicles what happens to the Bright family when their 3 kids are ripped away from them, and the shocking moments that came next. The Bright family was thrust into a medical and legal system so committed to protecting vulnerable children from abuse, it failed to protect innocent parents. From the hospital room to the courtroom, we walk in the footsteps of the Bright family as they battle to keep their children and fight against a system determined to tear them apart.

    With exclusive audio captured as the events unfolded, Do No Harm takes you inside the most harrowing moments of the Bright family’s fight to protect their children. Wondery - the makers of Dr. Death, Dirty John, and The Shrink Next Door, and NBC News - the team behind Dateline, The Thing About Pam, and Motive for Murder, join forces to bring you an investigative true crime show unlike any other - Do No Harm.

    Enough Rope.

    Enough Rope.

    A bit of a delve into the show's Patreon bonus episodes for this time around on The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, as we head back to the 1980's and over to the Hall Green area of the city of Birmingham for a truly unreal account of one man's macabre and very warped fantasy spilling over into reality - with the most horrifying, and tragic results. 

    It's a tale you won't forget in a hurry, I'm sure.

    The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events that some listeners may find disturbing or upsetting, so discretion is advised whilst listening.

    Introducing - Dr Death: Season 2

    Introducing - Dr Death: Season 2

    When hit podcast Dr. Death came out in 2018, it shocked listeners by shining a light on the story of Dr Christopher Duntch, and the shocking system failures that allowed him to maim and kill thirty three patients in Texas.

    Now, in 2020, Journalist and Host Laura Beil is back with a new story about another Doctor. A Doctor who poisoned his patients with drugs they didn’t need, to treat diseases they didn’t have.

    A Doctor who had over 500 victims before being stopped by the FBI

    A Doctor who deserves the name given to him by his victims.

    Dr. Death

    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. And as one of the most well respected oncologists in Michigan, his patients believed him. They believed him when he told them they needed chemotherapy. And they believed he would save their lives.

    But he was not who he appeared to be. He was lying.

    About everything.

    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.”

Great podcast

Came across this about a month ago .... Going through the back episodes ... Can't stop listening .... Fantastic

Pincat ,

Rich Seam

So glad I found this podcast, all the North American ones were getting a bit repetitive, so it’s great to hear home grown stories delivered by an engaging host who has a great turn of phrase! Looking forward to working my way through all these episodes!

Brilliant

I have listened to Paul for some time now and found that he has a passion for his work. He is honest and his manner of getting the story to the listeners without any drama is so professional without glorifying the story.
