Brilliant and Informative

I love this podcast. I’ve learned so much about the psychology of criminals and their crimes, and gaining a greater understanding of personality disorders and sociopathy through the podcast has helped me personally. I’ve been able to realise that an issue from my past wasn’t because I’m unlovable but because the other person involved was a self absorbed sociopath. It was like a lightbulb turning on and I will be forever grateful.

The podcast is worth all of the five stars I’ve given it but I do have some comments. The sound is often appalling! I’ve just listened to the first Mindhunter analysis - I had skipped this until I watched Mindhunter. I had to adjust the volume up and down six times; it went from deathly quiet in the beginning so I turned up the volume, only to have my eardrums blasted thirty seconds later by the introduction. I turned it down then once the discussion started I had to turn it up again. Then my ears were blasted again by the ad - you get the picture.

I find all the comments about Laura rather disturbing. Why shouldn’t she mention what she’s done? Would we say that to a man? No one seems to call Jim ‘full of himself’ every time he mentions the FBI. Laura has done astonishing work for the well-being of women. Also, like others, I do notice that both Jim and Laura jump in when Lisa asks a question but isn’t that the whole point? Lisa asks questions on behalf of us who don’t have the skills that Laura and Jim do, but when they then start answering, often with heat and passion because of the subject matter, and with their expert knowledge, it’s interpreted as bullying. I don’t seem to be hearing what others are hearing. There seems to be a thread of ‘we like nice soft Lisa, we don’t like Laura because she’s too clever’. This saddens me - we should be celebrating women’s educational and career achievements. It’s just perpetrating the myth that a ‘soft’ woman is how a woman should be, and that strong women who are experts in their field are hard and haughty. I don’t understand why people seem to be so threatened by a confident and clever woman. It makes me sad because it shows that we have such a long way to go.

I admire all three of the people involved in this podcast - they’re all valuable and it’s never the same when one of them isn’t there.

Could be great but it’s not

I was excited to check out this show after it was plugged on Wondery’s Guru because that series was great but I wanted to know more about JAR’s psyche and motives behind his sickening acts. There are 6 episodes about Guru and I got as far as 4 because it’s so repetitive. All they talk about is how awful he was and what horrible things he did. Yes we know - can you use your so called expertise to analyse him? I’m baffled at all the good reviews, no real chemistry there and Jim and Laura won’t stop talking about themselves and their credentials. Laura seems nice. I was actually shocked at how low-effort the podcast is. I want to try other episodes but I’m not going to waste my time. Don’t recommend.
