WILD

Introducing WILD, a podcast about growing up… kind of. About those moments big and small that transform us forever. About how sometimes we come out on the other side of chaos or adversity with scars but we come out stronger. About who we’ve been, and who we’ve become. WILD is about origin stories, OUR origin story. Hosted by award-winning New York Times writer Erick Galindo, in collaboration with Adweek’s producer of the year, Megan Tan and LAist Studios. Season 1 is a time capsule of 10 people and how they found light in a year of darkness.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
