How A Fertility Doctor Lied To His Patients. A Conversation About The 'Sick' Podcast

The first season of the podcast “Sick,” from Side Effects Public Media, dives into the story of a fertility doctor who spent years deceiving his patients. His ethical breach was uncovered due to the growing popularity of mail-in DNA tests.

Listen to the "All IN" conversation.


The 'All IN' talk show caught up with the podcast's co-hosts to find out how they put it together. Also featured are a mother and son who were central to the unfolding story, and a law professor who explains why it was such a challenge to hold Dr. Donald Cline accountable.

Guests included "Sick" co-hosts Lauren Bavis and Jake Harper; Liz and Matt White, who told their story on the podcast; and Indiana University law professor Jody Madeira.
