Gossip?

It started out quite intriguing, but now I think I’m just listening to gossip about people I don’t know. May or may not continue/ finish another time.

An intimate look into the relationship between a narcissist psychiatrist and a trusting patient

My favorite podcast this year. It’s like a car wreck you don’t want to look but you can’t seen to turn away. Very well narrated, I wanted to know the outcome but I couldn’t bear to listen to more than one episode at a time. Ike was an evil man and his wife should be sharing the blame. I wonder what the daughters think of their parents now that all had been revealed? I was frustrated at the outcome but I hope now that it’s all out in the open Marty will have closure . Please keep us updated

Narrator’s voice doesn’t match subject matter but good story

Narrator’s cadence and tone does not really match the story he is telling.... hard to take it seriously. Hopefully it gets better. Sounds like Ike was the ultimate “Jew” lol
