    In this special follow-up episode to the first season of Dr Death, Laura Beil revisits the  story of Christopher Duntsch’s best friend. When Jerry Summers needed surgery, he turned to his best friend. But the two buddies ended up living two very different realities.

If you haven’t already, listen to the first season now, particularly the episode called “Chris and Jerry.” Tap here to see a picture of Jerry with his dog, Stella.

Got Jesus? ,

Keeps you on the edge of your “treadmill”??!!

Oh Boy will you run faster (that’s if you’re running) as the suspense grows during this second season of Dr. Death. To all the staff kudos for your EXCELLENT work you have put into this show! I want to especially thank Heather Schroering for her exemplary writing skills she has contributed to this story! She’s a great example of living out what you are passionate about!! A+ Heather!! As the saying goes “An apple a day will keep the DOCTOR AWAY!” Eat up! Trish Martin 🍎

Interesting, gripping story but

The narrator was annoying and dramatic when you didn’t need it. The story is so unbelievably suspenseful and scary - you don’t need the soft voice.

Specrpr ,

Captivating

Both seasons keep you captivated while you are shaking your head at all the red flags yet nothing was done. Please research Dr. Paolo Macchiarini and his work with artificial tracheas.
