Fascinating story, skillfully told.

Nocera weaves an excellent narrative in this podcast. You can’t help but keep listening, not just out of curiosity of how things got so bad, but also to root for Marty. Another captivating tale told by Wondery.

Outstanding

This is an amazing story and very well presented. Truth is stranger than fiction. Too bad there are only 6 episodes.

it's Wondery, synomous with wonderful, right??! Or....

had high hopes for this one. first episode really good, second episode dragging. i begin to wonder - how do you make a multi episode compelling story about your shrink? the short answer -- you don't. also, prepare to be assaulted with ads, more than any podcast i have listened to, and i have 68 of them in my podcast feed.
