“One Great Man” | 9
You may remember the woman in the infomercial about Dr. Duntsch who admiringly calls him “one great man” and claims “he’ll fix you.” Laura Beil wasn’t able to get in touch with her when she first reported the series. She guessed that the woman must have been a paid actress, or perhaps even the rare patient who had a good result with Dr. Duntsch. But then the woman in the video reached out after hearing her voice in ”Dr. Death.” And the real story turned out to be much stranger. In this special episode, we also hear from a juror who helped deliver the verdict in the trial of Christopher Duntsch. Looking for the best sheets, ever?

That’s a question at the heart of a new series from Wondery, called Imagined Life. In each episode we’ll put you into someone else’s shoes. The people whose lives you’ll hear are famous- artists, musicians, politicians and others. And we’ll immerse you into their innermost thoughts as they experience adversity, hope, trial and error - but there’s a twist: it’s only in the last minute of the show you will find out who YOU are.
