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.

Interesting

Wow an interesting podcast. I really loved Joes story telling. Couldn’t stop listening. I binge listened! I feel that this is probably not an isolated case of when a medical professional takes advantage of a vulnerable patient. Must be really hard for the patient to realise that they are being taken advantage of as they view the relationship in a more positive light. They don’t see that they are a victim.

Essential Precautionary Tale

So interesting. Marty’s interviews are hilarious. Great investigation. Very personal. Actually quite emotional at times. But an essential precautionary tale when dealing with narcissists

Listener-Listener ,

Fascinating

Great investigation into power, control and exploitation
