Shot 27 Times and Kept Killing Bad Guys - Navy SEAL Mike Day walking into a room in Iraq and the shooting started. All combat starts with that first shot. Immediately, Day was in a fight for his life. Already shot several times, he killed 2 of the four enemies in the room.
Of the 27 rounds that hit him, 16 entered his body. At one point he blacked out--somehow came to and managed to kill the last two combatants. Despite being shot more than 2 dozen times, Mike survived; barely. Mike is the kind of hardened pro that sits in defense of the US and we love him for it.
Joining us today is best-selling author Robert Vera who's helping Mike write his book.

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.
