Chris and Jerry | 2

Update: 2018-09-04604


Chris Duntsch was a promising medical student, with a bright future ahead of him. The friends who knew him were shocked at the doctor he would later become. Not Chris, they said. That’s not the man I know. The Chris Duntsch they knew was driven, hard-working, smart, with a twinkle in his eye. And no one believed they knew Chris Duntsch better than his best friend, Jerry Summers.

“Death Don’t Have No Mercy” performed by Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams, courtesy of Rough Diamond Records.

I feel bad for Jerry but he became an abusive piece of crap to the one person who loved him and helped him and kept him out of a nursing home. he left scars on her with his damn power chair ffs. "you hurt the ones you love" is bs that should not be taught and not repeated. Abusive pieces of crap hurt the ones within reach, and this is not love. Abusive pieces of crap seldom hurt the people who have hurt them. They hurt the ones they can get away with hurting.

I felt so bad for Jerry until Jennifer started to discuss how harmful he became, using his body and his chair as a weapon. slamming into anything or anyone. For a while his grief was understandable, and his faith in Chris was stupid, but to turn and hurt the person who tried to stand by his side and assist him was frustrating, to say the least.

I don't feel sorry for Jerry, he was recklessly indifferent to his own physical welfare by letting the drug addled Chris operate on him. I feel sorry for the other patients but Jerry got what he got and now he's just a burden to everyone.

this is probably the biggest amount of ads for a 30+ min podcast. holy crap. I get ads are necessary but it's a bit much. I'm almost annoyed enough to quit listening.

Good gracious, the commercials are too many and disrupt the story. Can you say zip recruiter one more time so I can punch myself in the face?

Sounds exactly like a drug addict to me. How driven and competitive he was are the type to be prone to addiction.
