Veteran journalist Joe Nocera’s neighbor in the Hamptons was a therapist named Ike. Ike counted celebrities and Manhattan elites as his patients. He’d host star-studded parties at his eccentric vacation house. But one summer, Joe discovered that Ike was gone and everything he’d thought he’d known about his neighbor -- and the house next door -- was wrong. From Wondery, the company behind Dirty John and Dr. Death, and Bloomberg, “The Shrink Next Door” is a story about power, control and turning to the wrong person for help for three decades. Written and hosted by Joe Nocera, a columnist for Bloomberg.

Mindbending

People seek mental health professionals from a place of vulnerability with the hope of bettering their quality of life. Patients are encouraged to be open and trusting, for the therapy to work. What happens when this very core factor of therapy is misused? The podcast sheds light on one such case.

Best podcast ever

It was great…

I was loving this podcast, but partway to the end, it told me I needed to start paying $8 a month for it? What?!?!
