    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+.

    Feilding is a town located in the Manawatu District of the North Island of New Zealand. The town is known for its outstanding beauty and has won the title of New Zealand’s “most beautiful town” 14 times. It’s an Edwardian themed town with picturesque red-bricked pavements. The area surrounding the town is mostly farmland and at parts, can be quite rural. In 2010, the murder of a local farmer would grip the community and the outcome of the investigation would completely polarise the area as well as the victim’s family.

    Introducing: Killer Psyche

    Introducing: Killer Psyche

    Killer Psyche is a new weekly true crime podcast from Wondery that explores the minds behind infamous killers and criminals. They cover high-profile cases that have shocked the world, and host Candice Delong uses her five decades of experience as a clinical psychiatric nurse and FBI Criminal Profiler to dissect the motivations and behaviors of the most terrifying felons in history. In a recent episode, Candace examines the mind of Ed Gein, the notorious murderer who inspired the movies "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho." Candace dives deep into Gein’s mind — and how his mental illnesses led to his obsession with grave-robbing and murder. This is just a preview of Killer Psyche, but you can listen to the full episode at: https://wondery.fm/KP_Morbidology

    North Epping is a quiet, family-oriented and leafy suburb located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It’s the kind of area that’s perfect for blossoming families who want to be a bit further away from city life. In 2009, however, residents awoke to the grim news that an extremely brutal crime had taken place overnight in their tight-knit community, a crime so heinous that the responding officers would need counselling in the aftermath.

Lessor Known Cases

This is one of my all time favorite podcasts! I appreciate the focus on the lessor known cases, as they need to be heard also.
Emily has a great voice and even better accent!!
*one of very few podcasts I can listen to while I mow!*

My Favorite Podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast! The host is very sensitive to the victims. Both sides are discussed. I prefer this type of podcast over ones where they share their personal opinions. Keep up the amazing work!

Ads

WAYYYYYYYY TOO MANY!!! She’s an established author, freelance writer, has a Patreon AND over ten minutes of ads on every episode 🥱🧐 I hope she gives some of that money back to a good cause like other crime podcasters do, but she doesn’t mention that, so I doubt it. 👎👎
