ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

In 2009, our founder Ken Davenport wrote a blog which stumped many of his readers. He proposed the concept that Producers should receive a portion of the Author's subsidiary rights on shows that have not recouped on Broadway since it was the Producer’s production that branded the show for subsidiary production in the first place.

And while he received a tremendous amount of positive responses from the indu...

  • 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.
