Journalist Laura Beil of the podcast “Dr. Death” appears at the Wild Detectives this week.

Beil’s reporting on spine surgeon Christopher Duntsch, whose gross malpractice killed and maimed patients, made “Dr. Death” one of the most popular podcasts of 2018. Duntsch practiced at the defunct University General Hospital on South Hampton Road.

Catch Beil from 7:30-9 p.m. Thursday.
