‘Sick’ Podcast Explores A Fertility Doctor’s Abuse Of Power And The Generations Of Lives He Affected
We trust doctors to keep us healthy. But what happens when a doctor betrays that trust? In recent years, dozens of people who were born decades ago with the help of fertility treatment are coping with the revelation that they weren’t conceived the way they were told.
That’s the focus of a new podcast called "Sick," from WFYI, Side Effects Public Media and PRX.
We spoke with hosts Jake Harper and Lauren Bavis about Season One, which tells the story of one fertility doctor’s abuse of power and the generations of lives he affected.
