Wow! They do a wonderful job telling this crazy story- I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! 😍
There’s a dark heart at the core of this story, but the music, narration and sound design are sometimes lighthearted and whimsical. It’s an interesting contrast — befitting of the weirdness at play in this tale of a psychiatrist and the man he manipulates. An intriguing story that often made me feel like I was reading a piece of excellent longform journalism.
Was an interesting concept for a story, but didn’t need to be 6 episodes long. There was a lot of repeated info and I found Marty to be insufferable. I couldn’t feel bad for Marty, I didn’t understand how he could be so dense for almost 30 years. I kept waiting for Ike to finally get his rights to practice taken away, but nothing ever happened. I feel like I wasted my time listening to this when nothing was really resolved.
I listen when I work out and find myself working out more because I can’t stop listening.
Not my favourite podcast by any means.
Poor Marty is such a putz. You’d think he’d put Ike in jail. But, no. No redemption. Just an uninteresting, slow moving story.
Thank you for revealing this story and cautionary tale. I love real life stories but find myself frustrated that justice is not always served. How is it that such an obvious case of wrongdoing by a therapist is not thoroughly investigated in a timely manner and Dr. Ike stopped from hurting other patients?
This podcast was so interesting that I listened to all the episodes in one day! I found Marty to be a hundred percent truthful. I found Ike to not be credible especially since he would not respond to any questions except with a letter. He clearly was still trying to manipulate the situation with his carefully written responses. It’s really unbelievable how someone could be so brainwashed/manipulated for so many years and to such lengths that Marty was. It would be interesting to get an ethical psychiatrist’s opinion on Ike. I plan on seeing if I can find any more material regarding this case to see if Ike has received any backlash. I commend Marty for his honesty and wish him nothing but happiness!
I had my own experience with therapist of three years inc her giving me therapy in bathrobe and pink slippers;telling me about her affair with my gym instructor- fitness was a big part of my therapy - and telling me about other patients. Thankfully she put this in writing and I had it successfully investigated... I totally get why Marty got sucked in. It took me years to wake up and report her. Brilliant storytelling and though sad it is also quirky and black in humour... thanks for a great podcast. This is up there with the best
It’s great. Love the story and the narration. Smooth.
Chuck Norris is never 'armed to the teeth'. He is armed WITH teeth.
Long winded and boring. Struggled through the first episode. Boring.
Story is interesting if you can tolerate the ad interruptions.
Where is the rest of the story!
Great podcast. Must listen
Interesting story, but could have been told in less time; would have suited a more This American Life style I think. With 6 episodes I was expecting more events or revelations, but instead it felt like a long denouement. GB
Very good podcast. Interesting story, well told. Worth a listen. GB
This is a really interesting podcast and I have recommended it to many. It demonstrates how the most intelligent person in the room can be manipulative to the nth degree. I was often listening to the details of what went on and saying to myself this can’t be true... but it is. What I found hilarious was my mother’s comment when she started listening... “I am listening to a podcast on brainwashing only to get to the end of the episode thinking about oh goodness do I need to buy these sheets, they are the best they’ve ever slept in?!” The irony! GB
An ounce of emotion is equal to a ton of facts.
