    Introducing: The Shrink Next Door

    Introducing: The Shrink Next Door

    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. The Shrink Next Door is now an Apple Original series, starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd. Watch now only on Apple TV+.

    Mormon Manson: The Cult Leader's Hitlist

    Mormon Manson: The Cult Leader's Hitlist

    It’s Monday cult babes, and we’re nearing the end of Cult-vember! In this week’s episode we are primarily focusing on the deadly aftermath of Ervil LeBaron’s cult which were covered in ‘Mormon Manson’ and ‘Mormon Manson: Ervil’s Revenge.’ This is our ‘finale’ of the LeBaron family coverage. It’s been said that violent death seems to follow these people, and that much I know to be true.

    Mormon Manson: Ervil's Revenge

    Mormon Manson: Ervil's Revenge

    This week we are getting into the real story behind the death of Dr. Rulon Allred, as it turns out it was less of a murder…more of an assassination. We’ll touch on some of the many other murders ordered by Ervil LeBaron and talk about the history of ‘blood atonement’ and embezzlement in the churches.

Excellent

In every way

Good but……

I can swear with the best of them but hearing the F word every other sentence is distracting & totally unnecessary. The content should speak for itself, which for the most part it does. The best Podcasters don’t resort to this lazy habit. You can too, Spencer.

Cult

Hi Spencer I haven’t listened in a little cause my baby dogie passed away and I just haven’t been able to do regular things. I’m heartbroken. I’m hoping listening again will help cause your voice genuinely makes me smile. Thank you for that❤️❤️ Continue to love Hot Dog fiercely ❤️❤️❤️
