Patients in search of a miracle cure end up in critical condition. The race is on to find out what went wrong before more people get hurt. The trail leads back to a medical company with slick marketing and a charismatic CEO. And to a multibillion dollar stem cell industry where greed and desperation collide. Laura Beil, the award-winning host and reporter of “Dr Death,” returns for this six-part investigative series from Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John” and “The Shrink Next Door.”
I was unsure about whether or not I wanted to listen to Bad Batch. The reviews were all over the place, and most of the people complained about the number of ads this particular podcast had. But because I have found that Wondery podcasts are almost always great, I listened. I was surprised that I became as interested in stem cells and the lengths that people will go to feel better. There is a deep sadness that I felt after listening to this. Bad Batch is a story of greed, empty promises, and taking advantage of people who are desperate for a fast and better result. If nothing else, I hope that listening to this podcast will remind the listener that most things that sound too good to be true, usually are.
I give Bad Batch 4 out of 5 stars.
