Terrifying & true
 Dec 4, 2020
I'm in biotech (drugs/vaccines). Stem cells can be therapeutic, but the SCT industry is mainly pipe dream IPOs built to sell. Pls try legal meds from an MD don't risk your health Approved drug = $1B & 10-20 years of research SCT = None

Super interesting, well-researched and well-presented! But the host doesn't need to explain how podcasts work at the end of each episode when she references the show notes.

Description

Patients in search of a miracle cure end up in critical condition. The race is on to find out what went wrong before more people get hurt. The trail leads back to a medical company with slick marketing and a charismatic CEO. And to a multibillion dollar stem cell industry where greed and desperation collide. Laura Beil, the award-winning host and reporter of “Dr Death,” returns for this six-part investigative series from Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John” and “The Shrink Next Door.”


Episode Date
Wondery Presents: The Apology Line
00:06:52

If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that. This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end who became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing to murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door, comes a story about empathy, deception and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six episode series.

Wondery Presents Even the Rich: Paris Hilton
00:06:51

The latest season of Wondery’s Even The Rich profiles the one and only Paris Hilton. The unconventional heiress who carved out an American Dynasty that eclipses even her own famous family. 

From a young age Paris knew she was different. Whether her family approved or not, she was going to do whatever it took to carve out her own place in pop culture. And when a sex-tape exposed her in a vulnerable moment, she used it to catapult herself into the cultural zeitgeist, where she sits comfortably to this day. Listen to Even the Rich: Paris Hilton at wondery.fm/ETR_Hiltons.
