Imagine if you tried to launch a podcast by inviting potential listeners to a listening party. How many of us would be frightened nobody would show?
However, when you’re Wondery, and have Dr. Death and Dirty John on your podcast resume, you probably don’t worry at all.
Next week Wondery releases “Bad Batch” which follows Laura Beil’s investigation into Liveyon, a start-up that claims to use stem cells to treat pain, autoimmune diseases, infections, and even autism.
The company was hailed as a success — until several of its stem-cell customers started falling critically ill. Beil will host a Q&A following the listening premiere at the Ace Hotel in NYC on Wednesday, October 16.
