Former FBI agent and criminal profiler Candice DeLong examines the case of Paolo Macchiarini, the subject of Wondery’s Dr. Death, season three. Paolo was a star surgeon whose revolutionary development and use of synthetic windpipes was thought to put him on track to win a Nobel Prize. However, instead of helping the countless lives like it promised, it was actually a path to his patient’s torturous death. 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.
