Pharma Bro is an excellent 3-episode series

I really enjoyed Pharma Bro, but I would have liked to hear interviews/quotes from some of the actual participants in the case

Misleading attempt to rewrite history

Interesting until you come across an attempt to mislead. The podcast quotes a former head of counter intelligence and try’s to pass over and mispronounce this persons name. Please clarify that the philanderer Peter Strzok is the individual who has lied under and carried out personal agendas. The podcast presents him as Pete Strzok(Struck) as if we would not realize who this is. I’ve enjoyed your podcasts in the past. Even the biased ones, but your attempt to mislead your listeners ruins your credibility.

Loved it!

This was a great podcast. Very well narrated. But now, it’s one of the many in my sub list that have become just another add for something else. I’d love for it to come back.
