Excellent

Ike is clearly a narcissist. He did the typical divide and conquer to control Marty. It’s frustrating that none of his other victims came together with Marty to bring charges against Ike. It’s a terrible shame that Marty’s claims were not taken as seriously as they should be. I’m so glad Marty landed on his feet. He does seem like a stronger person now. So some help did come of this.

I loved this podcast

What an amazing story and the power of influence that people may have on others.
I was so impressed that everyone involved other than the crooked shrink came forward and shared so much- so brave of them and I hope they find healing from this experience.

Great Story

I love the way you have the actual people talking to you, real recorded voices not just reading something. It’s as if I am watching a show on TV. The content is excellent and I look forward to more stories.
