A very engaging podcast about a heartbreaking problem in our system.

Another so-called "investigative" reporter doing podcast where they just take the subject's word for it - where is the "investigation"? BE SKEPTICAL. Where is the investigation into why/how these injuries happen, whether the doctor is "wrong" in other cases, whether their "2nd opinion" doc is a reliable source? Why is the journalist even THERE if all he's going to do is tell the parents' version of the story? And why do the parents think they're so special that they can just ignore CPS plan?!

Heart wrenching. This is a nightmare, and listening to this story made me furious, sad, and every other emotion possible. There are so many cracks in the system.
