We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system.

Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away.

But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect?

From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.

Great Podcast

Really interesting! Listening while painting my house and it’s keeping me from going crazy of boredom. 😉 Makes me a bit nervous to go to the doctor though. 😬

Well-produced pod

If Trump practiced medicine...but I digress...
They even got good voice actors for the foreign versions. By the final 'sode started to feel redundant, but up to that point is was pretty engaging. Nevertheless, since I also wanted to listen to several of the translations, and the production quality is at the cutting edge of the podcast industry, I stuck with it. Shocking and riveting podcast.

Stop the introductions

Love the podcasts but seems like every episode that has come out lately has only been introductions to other podcasts. Can we get a few episodes first.
