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.

Very well done and immersive. Loved the science that undergirded the facts that came out especially in later episodes.

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.”
