Our Editor's Take

Putting your life in the hands of medical professionals when needed is a no-brainer for many. But Dr. Death Season 2 will make listeners think twice about the blind trust that is given to medical professionals.

Dr. Death: Season 2 is about a doctor’s shocking willingness to prescribe chemotherapy to patients who did not need it. It isn't surprising that money laundering and other kickbacks were at the heart of this doctor’s baffling medical decisions. Tune in to this podcast and let the expertise of Laura Beil drag listeners to the edge of their seats.

What transpires is a shocking series of events that take a much-respected doctor and create one of the biggest healthcare frauds in U.S. history. A true crime podcast for the ages, this real-life story will shock and appall in equal measure.
