A young missionary named Renee Bach left her comfortable life in America to start a malnutrition program in rural Uganda. Folks back home and in Uganda praised her as a model missionary -- an example of the healing power of God’s message. But a decade later she’s accused of masquerading as a doctor and rumored to have killed hundreds of children in her unlicensed clinic. How did Renee Bach end up here? Is she a case of good intentions gone wrong...or a predator posing as a saint? Hosted and reported by journalists Rajiv Golla, Halima Gikandi and Malcolm Burnley.

I binged this!
This was great investigative journalism! It seemed like the journalists really tried to understand everyone’s point of view. This is not a hit piece. It’s really thorough.
The only episode I skipped was the Barbie Savior episode because I had already listened to another podcast that referenced it and I felt like I was up to speed.
I only took away a star because about half the Ugandans featured had very pronounced accents and I couldn’t understand what they said.
Interesting, important topic, but low on evidence, as implied in other reviews here. I commend the production quality, but this feels more like gaslighting than anything else.
They ruined it by trying to turn it into a social justice poster
This could have been a good story. But it’s hard to take the reporters seriously. They have to try to weave in racism at every opportunity, even with things that are unrelated to the story. They are not unbiased so I find it hard to believe that they could report this story unbiased. I would love to hear an unbiased sort report on this story, instead of someone just looking for ways to weave in racism at every single tiny opportunity. It’s insulting to POC who are strong and don’t need the victim card constantly thrown in our faces.
