Addiction

Very addicting podcast! Riveting and shocking. I can’t believe the doc isn’t being investigated even harder. Maybe he brainwashed the feds haha! Anyway, I enjoyed listening to Joe and this podcast very much. Very well done 👍

Outstanding reporting; engaging story

I found out about this podcast from a coworker & quickly found myself idling in my driveway with the car running so I could finish an episode. The rest came in rapid succession as I found myself simultaneously intrigued & enraged on behalf of this “doctor’s” patients. Worth a listen.

The Fall and Rise of Marty

Fascinating story. Thoroughly told and happy that Marty got his family and his chutzpah back. Would like to see Ike lose his practice.

Looking forward to future podcasts from Joe Nocera.
