Super interesting and engaging podcast! My mouth dropped and I said “oh my!” And “oh no!!!!” so many times throughout the podcast.

Nothing but biased opinions and redundant content. I really liked Dr. death but this is a waste of time. I don’t think is okay to damage a company reputation because she couldn’t find treatment for her dad. This is not journalism or any kind of objective report.

Interesting and horrible story. Great narration. I appreciate the journalistic style and inclusion of multiple perspectives.

This was a really interesting podcast! I loved listening to Dr. Death, and this one was just as good. It was extremely eye opening to the potential risks to a new type of medical practice.

I am asked about stem cells by patients everyday. I am now referring them to this podcast to get better informed. This is important work.

Well made, important, and affecting change.

Yet another great podcast from Wondery and Laura uncovering problems in our health care industry (in this case wellness). This is a topic we should all be aware of and concerned about and presented in a very interesting and engaging set of episodes. I can’t wait to hear more in the future!

Laura Beal is simply amazing. Wondery just puts out solid podcasts. This was no exception. I hope the FDA will be able to get a grip on these dangerous companies popping up but sadly, they may not.

I love this (along with Dr. Death). I am in the field of pharmaceuticals and found it amazingly interesting to listen to how this all transpired. What a great issue to bring to light and love how this unfolded within the podcast

Wondery produces stellar content. Amazing story tellers!

Love this podcast
Rachelseabolt dispensing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/20
The production quality of this series is very well done, which makes it a pleasant and easy listen. However, the story itself never really intrigued me. I kept waiting for the narrative to get interesting, unfortunately it did not.

I liked the first 2 better But overall it’s good
behdhdbdhfu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/20
Great podcast and story, well researched and presented... BUT... so many ads. The story is being constantly disrupted by ads over a minute long and coming out of nowhere. Scale back the ads and you’d have a fantastic podcast.

Wondery never disappoints. Set aside some time, because you won’t want to stop listening once you start.
Farmgirlshelley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/20
Meh
I mean it was just ok. And sad what people are allowed to do and pay for to have done to their bodies. Hope everyone listens and shares it with someone they love. That being said it was a slow moving podcast and the characters were confusing to keep straight. At times i was confused as to which...Read full review »

I found the series fascinating until I was sorely disappointed with the last episode. Therein were discussed possible HIPPA violations, and the phrase “Elaine’s HIPPA violations” was used. I thought your legal research would be better as you previously discussed issues of informed consent and...Read full review »

Too many commercials, redundant content. This is a greedy business, not journalism, or art.
integrity in broadcasting via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/20
First few episodes very interesting, but runs out of steam completely at the end. Plenty of insinuation and implication, but no real resolution as to how the contamination occurred, or who was really to blame.
boredeastlondoner via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/19/20
The medical industry is scary. I feel like it’s all about money and not about people. Host is pleasant to listen to.
fzrgrl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/19/20
Great reporting on skeezeballs like John K and his henchmen. What a jerk!
Nigroam via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/20
Meh
If you would like a story that goes nowhere, with no interesting central figures, and no resolution, this is the series for you. Just listen to Dr. Death and let’s appreciate what is, and stop trying to recapture what was.
Adamnnn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/16/20
Tell your moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas to listen to this. Explain it to the very loudly so they can hear you. Say it’s like 20/20 for your ears. 👍
Elliott_k75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/20
Bad Batch is one of my favorite podcasts. Kudos to the whole team for bringing light to such an important topic.
Autumn_Kat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/20
I really did try to listen this through and it is a compelling story! But the actual story telling is so fragmented, it goes from one topic to the next in circles, without really digging in.. I really loved Dr Death but it feels like wondery have gone from really investigating a story to just...Read full review »
mardellie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/15/20
I gave this a listen because of how incredible Laura Beils work was on Dr Death but this one was just ehhh. I feel like the focus wasn’t clear, the main incident that supposedly launched this investigation is barely mentioned and up until the hosts personal relationship to the stem cell industry...Read full review »

A great story with great content expressed in an effortless way.
Ghhyrr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/20
Loved this podcast and I think everyone should hear it! This information is important, yet this is the first I’ve heard that stem cell injections is even a thing, and I work in the medical field. Only thing I would change is the name of the podcast. I would have listened much sooner if I’d known...Read full review »

Another great podcast series by Wondery!

Great podcast to listen to! Laura is a great narrator and and I enjoy her immensely! Check it out!
Madmaxman26 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/13/20
I have tried to listen to several of the wondery podcasts but my device tells me it can’t be downloaded or it is unavailable... this is on multiple shows.. i don’t have issues with any other productions. Thanks
TBt369 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/20
I think everything Laura Bell narrates is amazing ! I just finished Dr. Death and now this. I would never take anything that is not FDA approved. I am in the medical field and there is a lot of exciting info around stem cells but there is still so many scientific studies that need to be done. Not...Read full review »

Liz gallardo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/07/20
I found this podcast so informative. In 2012, our first child was born and we opted to pay for private cord blood collection and storage for our newborn. Over the years, the storage fees increased and I began looking more into their claims. Our child has been completely healthy and not needed...Read full review »

I still have so many questions. I know there is only so many answers you can get from people. But this was so good. It kept me listening everyday until I was done. I even started googling things myself. Lol. I loved it.

So interesting!
purplepapajohnpizzaeater via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/20
Thank you for reporting & taking us on this incredible journey. Very informative!!!

This was a very interesting podcast! I absolutely love Laura’s work with Wondery!
jmcreynolds1019 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/20
Another interesting story falls victim to Podcast Voice. Podcasters aren’t actors, and sounding like you’re not reading copy is a skill that develops. That said, I’m on episode 4 and don’t think I can make it through. The narrator’s speed, inflection, and emphasis is so unnatural that it pulls me...Read full review »

Love the depth to which the investigation was conducted! Yes there are commercials, but this a fantastic podcast! I’m hooked
FensterC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/19
I can’t wait for more from Laura. Fantastic reporting - thank you!
jgw73 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/27/19
Great story Great production To many ads and to short of episodes. I work with my hands and it was annoying to get an episode started to have it only end and the content stuffed with ads.
Stories4Rbyn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/19
Awesome
9958577584 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/20/19
Wondery are doing a disservice to the great podcasts they make by putting WAY too many ads in each one. The flow of any episode is constantly interrupted with ads and cross promotion. It’s a shame because the podcasts they make are great, but I don’t want to listen to a constant stream of ads.
B0ner via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/19/19
Loves these true to life real reporting! I research all doctors and what they do prior to appt.
MEDMEDx2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/19
I had not heard of Laura Biel before binging the Doctor Death podcast. Once I listened, I immediately took to Google and searched for her previous work and background. I often read an article or listen to a podcast with information learning something I had not been aware of. But before I take...Read full review »

Too many ads. I thought the content was pretty good but not great. I guess I felt like the frequent, lengthy commercial interruptions made it difficult to stay with the story.
JNC1435 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/19
A little too sympathetic to John, I agree with other reviewers. When asked if she thought John believed he was helping people, I thought the response was far too naive. John is literally selling to all of the practices that the FDA are trying to shut down. So I thought that was a little too...Read full review »

I found the Podcast to very informative, and interesting. I had seen numerous commercials about Stem Cell implantations, after listening to the Podcast if I ever decided to do a stem cell implant I’d make sure to do my homework. Also John K seems like a snake oil salesman.
