Much better than the bad reviews

Whatever your opinions are of Benita, it’s an amazing story and was very well reported and edited and presented. It’s not jus a woman-scorned podcast, as some of the bad reviews suggest. If not for Benita going public with her humiliating story of being romantically duped, one of the most prestigious medical institutions in the world would have continued covering up for a for a doctor who was doing experimental surgery on humans and basically murdering them. That’s the part of the podcast that interested me the most. I wouldn’t give it a five but I would give it a 4.5 if I could. Definitely worth a listen.

Shocking!

What a monster! The story of a psychopath who simultaneously destroyed a woman in his personal life and took lives in his professional life. Benita’s story juxtaposed against his patients and other doctors in his path shows the true depths of his insanity. Utterly horrifying.

Not sure why so much anger at Benita

It’s true that this season included more about this doctor’s personal dishonesty and unethical behavior, but I felt they did a great job of showing the type of person who would engage in murder of patients. I can only attribute the reviews that call Benita self-serving and other nasty things to sexism. She is a strong woman who went through an extraordinary and frankly horrific experience with a sociopath. Excellent reporting, and I’m just glad he’s being held to account.
