Former FBI agent and criminal profiler Candice DeLong examines the case of Paolo Macchiarini, the subject of Wondery’s Dr. Death, season three.

Candice examines how this star surgeon continued to rise even as his victims were falling; and what compelled him to continue with his deceits, even when he knew that there was no way to sustain them.
