Dr. Tod

A health podcast in German from Wondery

Wir sind am verletzlichsten, wenn wir zu unseren Ärzten gehen. Wir vertrauen der Person am anderen Ende des Skalpells. Wir vertrauen dem Krankenhaus. Wir vertrauen dem System.
Christopher Duntsch war ein Neurochirurg, der Sicherheit ausstrahlte. Er behauptete, der Beste in Dallas zu sein. Wenn man Rückenschmerzen hatte und schon alles andere versucht hatte, konnte Dr. Duntsch bei einem die Wirbelsäulenoperation durchführen, die einem den Schmerz nehmen würde.
Aber bald stellten sich bei seinen Patienten die ersten Komplikationen ein und das Gesundheitssystem versagte dabei, sie zu schützen. Da drängt sich die Frage auf: wen - oder was - soll das System eigentlich schützen?
Von Wondery, dem Netzwerk hinter dem weltweit größten Hit-Podcast, kommt DR. TOD, eine Geschichte über einen charmanten Chirurgen, 33 Patienten und ein rückgratloses System.

This podcast may use tracking and attribution and dynamic content insertion

Stats: Statistics are produced by ART19, Podtrac and Podsights to help Dr. Tod to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. ART19 and Podtrac are IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: ART19 and Podsights or their partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - they may spot a device that downloaded an episode of Dr. Tod later visited the website of an advertiser; or they may track that a device that listened to Dr. Tod also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: ART19 may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Dr. Tod may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

Dr. Tod is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
