As if this would not have been already tragically enough, Michelle hid the true nature of her husband's death: A suicide turned into an accident. Grieving something that actually did not happen, not being honest to her family as well as friends and therefore not with herself, Michelle faced the consequences of living a lie for such a long time. In this episode, Michelle talks about being the spouse of someone who committed suicide, how she found the strength to tell the truth and how her own experiences shaped her own career now.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
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.
