WHITE COLLAR: The Dalkon Shield

With the permission from the team over at Swindled, we are covering one of their best True Crime stories. It’s a story of lies….cover-ups…and murder. But murder that was done out in the open while a company actually profited from women’s deaths. In today’s episode, we are discussing the Dalkon Shield, an IUD that killed at least twenty women, hurt hundreds of thousands, and is still being used overseas today.
