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.”

I love the way he's always got some relative who was miraculously cured but what ever his latest snake oil is. So after he lost all his uncle's money in his insurance scam he intros his cancer suffering uncle to the miracle pain cream that actually turns out to be yet another scam. Shame in you John K, you are a absolute worm.

John K"s arrogance is astounding! " I don't want to say I know more than them .... but I do know more than a lot of them. Scientists do science, marketing people do marketing well ... I have been able to learn & implement all of it together"😲 🤯 WTF?? This guy is so full of himself but has a litany of failed business ventures and scams going back years. Using "my friends are millionaires" as a way to back up his huge ego only proves that he is delusional!!. 🤬

So if Liveyon has a PURE line, what are their other lines, A LITTLE LESS THAN PURE? They say, “more pure, more clean? So what was it before? Just saying.

I really have a lot of respect for that doctor who tried it on himself before risking any of his patients.

His company, that has over 100 employees, makes 6mil, so he pays himself 1 /7th of it. Sounds "reasonable"

episode one just drags and sounds like a broken record. clearly for an audience 60 years plus... I would put more work in this comment but it's equal to how bad this podcast was ...
