This week we are joined by Benita Alexander, the former NBC producer who’s fairytale romance with the so called ‘super surgeon’ Dr Paolo Macchiarini turned out to be all lies, a scam. Ms Alexander tells her story, how she fell for Macchiarini, the wedding that was to be officiated by the Pope himself, how she ultimately exposed Macchiarini in a stunning turn of events and how she is now working to help empower other women.
Ms Alexander is in Stockholm, Sweden covering Macchiarini’s trial. He is on trial over experimental windpipe transplants. She shares her thoughts on the trial, the accusations against him, her thoughts on Karolinska Institute’s handling of the situation and what she hopes the outcome will be.
