Ep 252 | Aired 7/9/2021 Today’s Up In Your Business With Kerry McCoy show is epic! So epic that it had to be edited into a 2-part series.

Ms. McDougal’s story is a real-life Shakespearean tragedy; an eye opener into the abuse of judicial power, fake media, and co...

  • 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.
