Interesting but a bit long...

I enjoyed this podcast but felt it was a little long winded. It was a shame that we couldn’t hear from Ike and his voice, but overall it was interesting to hear how someone from the psychological profession had exerted their power over someone. A good double bill with Dr Death for sure!!

Gripping

Very good podcast as with all the other ones. Clearly what happened to Martty is completely wrong but i also can’t help but to feel he brought it all on himself. I’m surprised how a man with his acumen can loose control of himself and his affairs to this extent.
