The Baron of Botox

A weekly Society, Culture and Arts podcast featuring
 5 people rated this podcast
Over two decades, Dr. Fredric Brandt went from a small dermatology practice in Miami to being Madonna's personal skincare consultant and the go-to for public figures desperate to stave off aging. His clients loved him. Fashion magazines profiled him. But as Brandt continued to build his empire—a best-selling product line, pristine homes in New York and Miami, and an absurd modern art collection—he was slowly becoming addicted to his own product. Popular speculation has it that it was Martin Short's scathing portrayal of a clearly-based-on-Brandt character in the 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' that pushed him to his death, but the truth is far more complicated. From Justine Harman and the team behind 'Broken Harts.'

This is a really sad story and it kind of makes fun of the subject. Also, the guests seem to be recorded via sticking a mic up to an iPhone when the guest is on speakerphone. Sometimes the guests seem to also be on speakerphone! Come on.
Such a fucking bore. Not every story deserves a podcast.
