Wondery brought a great podcast series about the bad doctors in the world. It’s scary to think that there are so many. So far, there are four seasons of the podcast, Dr. Death, that are worth checking out.

The first season of the podcast was about Dr. Christopher Duntsch, an neurosurgeon who had patients go in for routine needs and come out permanently disabled or dead. This was turned into the first season of the TV series on Peacock.

Now there’s a second season of the TV series. Of course, if you want to learn more about this doctor, you’ll want to know if Wondery covered the story. Is this part of the true crime podcast?

Dr. Death Season 2 is the third season of the Wondery podcast

Well, there is good news. There’s another medium to learn more about Dr. Paolo Macchiarini, also know as The Miracle Man. However, you’re going to have to jump past the second season of the podcast to get the story.

This second season of the show is based on the third season of the podcast. There are eight episodes to tell the tale. It’s worth listening to each episode to see how the story unfolds, and you’ll want to see if one episode of TV is the same episode of the podcast or if the workings of the story had to be adapted for the different mediums.

Listen to other seasons of Wondery’s Dr. Death

The podcast has two other seasons of doctors doing scary and illegal things. The second season follows Dr. Farid Fata, a doctor in Michigan who helped patients with lung cancer. Well, that’s what he claimed to do. It turned out he wasn’t what he appeared to be, and the podcast uncovers all.

The fourth season is titled “Bad Magic,” and it follows a young doctor who looks for revolutionary treatments for HIV and cancer patients. Serhat Gumrukcu seems to have the ability to prevent people from dying from these, but what’s really going on? This brilliant doctor is hiding something and a team of researchers get to the bottom of it.
