    Controlling behaviour

    We all have a natural need for a sense of control in our lives – but the over-controlling kind can get out of hand. People with a psychopathic personality disorder are highly skilled in manipulative techniques – which can wreak havoc if you’re on the receiving end.

Great Content

I love this show for its stories, varied perspectives, and well-researched information. My only issue is the frequent re-releasing of episodes, which clutter my subscription feed and make me forget what I have and haven’t listened to.
