The most (in)famous chef on the Internet, Chef Davide Cerretini, joins me as he explains how he declared war on Yelp!

In 2014, Yelp kept contacting Davide to advertise with them. He refused. Then he saw his positive reviews disappear and his bad ones popping up. Coincidence? Davide didn’t think so. So he decided to try and beat them at their own game.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • 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.
