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.”

It's so awful that Jen Crawford feels so devastated and so responsible for what happened, and the people ACTUALLY responsible are so much less compassionate. Bless her, this wasn't her fault. I wish her peace.

Great podcast, informative and accurate. It does bother me that no information was given about the formal training these people had. The main injector was a chiropractor, i.e. no formal training on sterile technique, injection techniques, or even embryology and hematology! Also, while the podcast emphasized umbilical stem cells and infected product, virtually nothing was said about bone marrow derived autologous stem cell treatments. This podcast isn't the full story.

So, to rehabilitate Liveyon's reputation after these near fatalities, Kosolcharoen throws a dinner and sales convention and charges $5,000 per person to attend. Kosolcharoen is shameless and the attendees who ponied up $5k are idiots.

The information was well documented and written. The journalist and narrator did a great job telling "news" like a story.

John is what's wrong with medical sales. Narcissistic and greedy. I suffered for years with an autoimmune disease until my surgery. I fully understand the desperation to get a treatment, but these guys are selling false hope. fuck them.

That scientist is a typical academic. Sure lies should be used to sell medicine, but patients deserve the right to try even if it's a placebo.

The pain cream scam was covered by John Oliver on Last Week Tonight - I can't believe this guy sounds so incredulous about being a grifter. He helped con US taxpayers via the VA for nearly 2 billon dollars!

another "dirty John"... the amount he goes on about his rich friends and their million dollar homes makes me cringe.
